Gordon is the only person I would let touch a machine polisher to my car... I would say I'm pretty capable with the machine polisher and have attended 2 classes with Gordon (a one to one and a group), but cause I know I wouldn't be able to achieve the results he gets I get him to do it and after 5 cars he's never failed to impress!
LOL the less said the better... I bought my car from Macklins... sales team (particularly Sam who has left now) were fantastic... Almost everyone in the garage is really good and the tech is really good, but despite the fact Macklins is 2.3 miles away from me I travel the hour through to Nobles because of the way the service manager (M. Simpson) has treated me on 2 separate occasions, you would have honestly thought I was a homeless guy going in there for a heat never mind a customer who just gave them 70k. But others use them and haven't had problems with her so maybe I just caught her at a bad time of the month.
BTW on a side note if you are interested in any meets or anything just give me a shout as theres a few NON GTROC meets coming up that GTR owners are going to and from that I think it will be easier to get to know people and get more people interested in GTROC meets
