    Specialist Near Manchester

    Anyone point me in the right direction............................Cars booked in at Stratstone Manchester for an 80k service on Wednesday under there service plan agreement, unfortunatley, i've got what i think is a transmission leak which i'll ask them to look at whilst its on the ramp, and then today, i got an amber warning light saying "gearbox fault". I'm expecting the worse from Stratstones and theres no way i'm gonna pay them there exhobitant prices for anything other than a fluid top up.
    Anyone know of either a Jag or gear specialist near Manchester, just in case.

    If the car needs a gearbox, then I'd suggest British transmissions in Bristol. I had mine done there. It drives now beautifully after 30,000 miles with the reconditioned gearbox . Total mileage...220,000 miles

    There's another dealer Royles in Wilmslow. I'm taking my car there this week for servicing, after good recommendation I've had from member of this forum: they also do a very very good hourly rate for labour for older cars plus discount for parts. Maybe you want to give them a call before Wednesday?!?!

    Not sure if it's too far for you, but B&W Automotive are based in Ellesmere Port.

    Just had a 70k service done on my X-Type today (first time there). I spent a few hours in Cheshire Oaks outlet while I waited.

    I can vouch for Horner and Hudson. Their workshop is in Macclesfield but Mike lives in south Manchester and will collect and deliver back. Excellent service and their hourly rate is far below that of main dealer prices. I have full confidence that they are looking after my pride and joy. Mike is such a nice guy too.
