    I had my aircon repaired there last summer, and they did a great job. They even found someone to give me a lift home as I needed to leave my car. Good chaps and a great selection of cars.

    One of the guys at the meet said that they did work to his car and bodged it up.In the end the car went to KHPC to get rectified as Foskers didn't know what they were doing.I've also heard a few interesting stories about them which I'm not prepared to air out in public.However I have met the guys and they seem ok to me.

    I went up there a few times just to look , they had a lot of cars in pieces mainly Classics Dino,s etc.

    I didnt get the feel that they didnt know what they were doing.. imo..

    Everyone appears friendly when they are trying to sell you their services. The litmus test is when things don't go as planned. My personal experience has been exactly that with Foskers. Very friendly to start with, very bad and uncontactable by the end. I have shared my experince in private with Tony and would be happy to do so in private with anyone else that my want to hear it.

    I do think it is good to research who you trust your car to. I have heard many many bad stories for many of the garages and these must be viewed in conjuction with the good ones to get a balanced view. My overall conclusion is that there are only 3-4 independents that I have formed a good opinion of based on my own research.

    Cheers
    Philip

    I have never had any problems with Verdi. Carl has always been very helpful and knows all there is to know on ferraris. I have been using Verdi's for about 5 years

    All sorted thankfully. Sadly my Ferrari cap (last seen on the back shelf) seems to have been a victim of having to drive from Seven Oaks to Maidstone with the window open and the door ajar. If anyone sees one on the road, it's mine, gottit?!

    very nice looking car, both inside and out. I notice that the rear 'black' panel over the engine compartment has been painted red too, did you get that done?
