Are there 2 SE Nissan's in Maldon then, 'cos that doesn't sound like them!!! I find them, well I won't say on here 'cos I respect your BB, but if anyone's interested in what us 200sx guys say about them, read this.

Dan I just read the thread on your BB and I didn't realise they had such a bad reputation. I took my Skyline to them last year and got them to re-enable the boost controller which had been disconnected for import/SVA. This created an intermittent fault which meant the engine would cut out for a second or so about once every 10 seconds and also it would not rev beyond 2,500 rpm. They were very helpful in trying to sort the problem but I did have the car in to them about 4 times (for a week each time) before they worked out it was just some crap in the airflow sensor. Also they did a bit of paint work and managed to get overspray on just about half the car. They did however cut and polish most of it back up but only after I'd pointed it out to them. Still I found them to be curteous and helpful although I do agree about the phone calls not being returned.
I still intend to carry on using them but this is based more on the fact that they are the closest Nissan specialist to me than on the quality of their work or their reliability.

Yeah, unless they forget to put the sump plug in and oil pisses out all over the road and nearly fecks up your engine, as happened to one of the guys!

Where abouts in Essex are you, as I live near the Dartford crossing and I always make the journey to Abbey in Oxted, Surrey. It takes about 40mins I guess including warming the car up properly. In my opinion, they're MUCH better at everything.

I am based in north Essex near Saffron Walden so it takes about an hour to get to the Dartford crossing and then another 3/4 of an hour to get to Abbey (which I have visited once before). I agree that they are definately the best people around and if I was to have any major work done I would take the car to them, but the Missus would not be too pleased having to follow me there and back round the M25 in her 1.2 Nova too often. It only takes 50 mins or so to get to SE Nissan.

Quote from tuning section of website - gtr tuners

Rod has now set up on his own but still does work for Middlehurst when they need a helping hand.

So if you take your car into middlehurst for a big job and they are busy, RB does the work!!!!

Another RB Motorsport convert

Rod Bell has now got my vote - worth seeing him for the mapping alone - he's totally transformed my car - it's more responsive, seems more powerful and, dare I mention it, provides better MPG.
I was impressed by Rod's knowledge and hence I'll be using him for all the major work from now on.

Option Motorsport also get a good mention particularly if you're looking for attention to detail.

Talat.

engine rebuild

I have had my R33 GTR remapped by Rod Bell Motorsport this week
it looked like the garage that fitted the apexi power fc system
did not know what they were doing.:mad:
the car was over fueling 9/1 AFR with the knock light turned off. :mad:
do not ask me who fitted it.
Rod with his laptop software has it now running at 11 /1 AFR. and no knock:D
it runs really good now and my oil does not have unburnt fuel in the sump.

all i can say is thanks Rod and i will be back for more work very soon

next week

thanks Pete:D

Tuners

Don't use any yet but I'm just deciding which one to use at the moment and have contacted several on that list. Very dissapointing that three of them have not even replied despite me asking for a squillion quids worth of work to be done.

Have now narrowed it down to Rod Bell or Abbey.
