Serek is a star
« on: 04 October 2018, 20:52:58 »

Just got back from my trip to Serek's garage in Huntingdon.

He did everything I was hoping for, and a bit more with the replacement of a lower engine pulley and an oil seal, all for the price he quoted me!

He even took the car for a test drive with me in it to see that everything was fine; how many other garages do that?  He also pointed out that the front brakes need doing, but everything else was fine :y :y.

He had found though that the timing (last done by Vx) was out!! :o :o

Lovely guy who was keen to give me the best possible service.  Excellent, and now would highly recommend to others! :y :y :y

Ron; I passed on your good wishes! :D :D

Set off at 0430 hours (so like my professional days!!), with only real hold-up on the M20 with a lorry blocking one section of motorway after an accident. But arrived, after a Services break, at 0800. Overall though a great journey up there when I achieved 33.9 mpg, the highest I have recorded; but I was driving at a steady speed of around 50-60 mph.  Most unlike me!! :o :o ;D ;D

Had plenty of coffee in the Dunelm restaurant and read half of a book I have been meaning to read for the last 8 years; Doherty. R. Normandy 1944 The Road To Victory Spellmount (2004), after reading many others on the subject!  So a great result all round :D :D ;)

How many times did you have to stop on the way back after all the coffee? Would have been about every 10 miles for me.  :(

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

He certainly is!

Done lots on my cars, infact I've got a trip to see him soon for more work on the project car.

Glad all went well for you, Lizzie. Did you achieve a better mpg on the return journey after Serek's magic touch?
Is there an "Omega Saint" ranking category on OOF? If not, we should make on for Serek!   :y 8)

I told you a Vx dealer would likely get it wrong, they have not seen a V6 for years.

Glad you took advice and went to see him, with money saved you could probably go on a nice holiday  :y

They were getting them wrong even when they were seeing them daily.!

Elderly people tend to piss the same number of times each night they used to have sex.

It's a substitution of sorts. Pissing replacing shagging. :)

Strangely only once STEMO, but I did try and stop drinking coffee an hour before setting off and drain myself well before I left! :D :D :D ;)

I stopped at the Welcome Break Service Centre at Birchanger Green on the M11 on the way up and going back down ;)

This guy is so impressive.  He does what he says, and does it all at first class standards. Not surprised you and others use he all the time.  Cannot see the point of getting my hands dirty now, well not with the major jobs anyway!! ;D ;D :y :y

No Ron, as I was stuck in slow moving traffic for a bit, then was not so careful with my top speed thereafter!  Still returned 31.9 mpg though! :D :D :y

Thanks tunnie, yes all the advise was spot on :-* :-* :y

As for the saved money, it will ploughed into the Omega when more works are needed, which no doubt won't be long.  The tracking and brakes are the next things, but for that I will use Protrye who have WIM facilities (as per other advice I have received!) :D :D

Do you remember the historic phrase A goodwine needs no bush, Lizzie? Serek doesn't need to advertise.....
