Default Renault Clio 182 Specialist North East Wales/North West England?

Hey guys,

Thought I'd try here first befor the northern/welsh sections

My brother has a Clio 182 Cup and is struggling to find a specialist to do the maintenace and servicing that is (his words) reasonably priced and fairly local. Its a cracking little car which he has had from new and he has always used the main dealer but is fed up of getting stung. He is based in Wrexham, does anybody know of any?

Cheers
Paul

Don't think there are any Clio 182 "Specialists" about. Why doesn't he just take it to a reputable non-franchised garage? As long as they use genuine Renault parts, you should have no problems.

Thumbs up

lol cheers guys, should keep him busy for a bit! Most 'normal' garages won't touch the cambelt and Renault is pricey. And He was just a bit miffed when he found out he was paying similar prices to me (I use Prosport in Stockport)
