Default I would not let them near my van again.

They worked on my Bay engine, had to take it back three times as it was worse once they had looked at it, they charged me nearly a 1000 and still it ran to hot, would not start and kept dumping the oil, they refused to put it right so I had to take them to court to get my money back. Graham Pells is a spineless lying cheating bastard and cant be trusted.

Why? - It looks as if its only a couple of garages that are dodgey - and it looks as if they are closed. I don't know of any in Camarthen but I'm sure some else does
