  1. ACE MOT testing station rakes lane Bolton. The guy who runs it has had both bays and beetles. Really fair and knows them well.

  2. I had the bus MOT today. E&S Swift
    Unit 13, Carlton Industrial Estate Albion Rd, Carlton, Barnsley, South Yorkshire, S71 3HW

    They are an old school VW Audi specialist. A late 50s guy who serves his apprenticeship with VW on aircooled motors. He knows them inside out and moans like an old git , but loves em really. He's built dozens of engines and tells me in the past he always kept a 1600 short block on the shelf for customers.

    This is a friends place and they are all V-Dub mad and will gladly MOT ya buses. This is also a garage so they will work on your 4 wheeled gems aswell - probably one of the cheapest around the area.
  5. If you are around Northants I can wholeheartedly recommend these guys
    They are all car enthusiasts and are quite happy to let you watch and chat whilst doing the MOT rather than ushering you into some bland waiting area.
    I cant fault the service and all for 40 quid as well.

    He is pretty old school and sympathetic to older cars, has Mot my bus for last 9 years, i do my own work though so cant comment if you want him to do the work, he does charge full price though.
  13. Mike Watkins MOT and Garage in Hereford, just off Plough Lane, was recommended to me by a mate with a splitty. Really friendly people in there and will let you walk around with them, pointing out any areas of concern while he carries out the test. Gets quite a few old bays and splittys in there he was saying. He's into his old Land Rovers too, if you're into that sort of thing. Top Garage! :thumbsup:
