You want a small amount of justification to make the recomendation more meaningful - minimal / no debate a good idea.


Rk tuning for skylines would get my vote

No messing. Genuine. Proven results and importantly I never thought Ron would rip me off unlike some others I had dealings with.

Depends what you are looking for!

Servicing?
General maintenance?
Tuning?
Big Power build?

There are competent people out there for the basic stuff, plus a few incompetent.

For Skyline side, there have been some around for 10+ years, like Rod Bell, RK, AMS, etc. who must be doing something right. Some newer people on the block. The 35, not yet got that sort of longevity but are getting there.

Fact is every tuner has a skeleton or two in the closet, they aren't perfect and sometimes it goes wrong. The true test of professionalism is how they respond to mistakes.

In the end, you want someone who does a reliable job, for a fair price and can be reasonably trusted - the key element. Clients by definition have to put a degree of trust in their 'tuner' and it leaves you wide open to abuse by those with an unscrupulous streak. Been there, done that, suffered the consequences.

I chose my GTR tuner based on how they conduct themselves on the Forum, through word of mouth and how they are when you speak to them.
Based on that, it's Litchfield and SRD for me. I'm not interested in World Records :)

SRD did my Supra for me, and it was stunning. Litchfield have a long history in tuning, and Iain portrays an air of professionalism and trustworthiness - now I'm not saying the others aren't trustworthy, just that Iain takes care of business with little fuss. Neither do the bashing and both have many returning customers. Good for me.

I always combine some other work with servicing, so I'm not travelling 300-400 mile round trips for just an oil change.

I use Abbey Motorsport and am very happy with them and there work- would highly recommend them.

I visited RB Motorsport before buying my car as they serviced it and Rod spent time with me discussing the purchase and what to look for. Very nice of them and great to talk to.
