"Great service from Steve after an AA callout on a Sunday. Very reasonable charges and he knows VW's backwards." - S Gilmore

“Despite presenting Steve and the crew with problems relating to the steaming piles of rubbish that I drive (aka 'classic' cars) they patiently work through the issues in their consistently patient, good humoured and efficient manner. Thanks for going the extra mile guys.” - R Moon

"Hi Tracey. Just a quick note to you and Steve. I wanted to thank you both for all your work on the Passat - it was a pleasure to deal with you. The car is running beautifully, and seems as good as it every was. Fingers crossed for trouble free motoring from now on!" - D Morgan

“I have no hesitation in recommending STR. They always go the extra mile on my classics. I recently bought an old Mini Cooper which had recently had work done at a Mini Specialist. However, it wasn't running right. Steve had totally transformed it in less than an hour. Nothing is too much for these guys!” - A Willis
