Hi,

Can anyone recommend a Garage in or near to Worthing West Sussex for working on my GT TDI 150? I realise this is a rather specific question, and that most people will not live locally - but I thought it was worth a try!

It needs the cambelt / water pump replacing and some rear brake pads. I'd prefer to take it somewhere based on a recommendation, rather than just trawl Yellow Pages for a Garage!

Thanks

I know there are some brilliant ones in Brighton. I cannot name names, as i simply cant remember where i took my 1.4s months ago. But they did alot of work, and it wasnt to expensive. I'd recommend a garage in brighton more than worthing.

GT TDI 150!? Very nice! I just bought a GT TDI 115 and want to upgrade the internals to a 150 for a custom map of 200+bhp..

Ill have to look out for you, i live in Eastbourne 22 miles past Brighton so fairly(ish) local i guess!

Cheers,
Lewis.

I used to use Days VW in Hove when I lived there a few years ago.

He was brilliant.

I used to have a great mechanic in Worthing, but he recently retired due to ill health. Hence I'm on the hunt for someone new.

Yep - Days VW, St Johns Road, Hove.

I haven't been there for years, but he used to do a fine job looking after my Mk2 GTI 8v.

There is the Caffyns group of garages, one in Goring and one in Portslade. These are good but they are main dealers so maybe expensive for you.

I work at VW Eurovans in Portslade and we also do cars in there as and when they come in, get alot of company car golfs etc, and are probably cheaper than a main car dealer. We charge 74 an hour plus VAT.

Otherwisethere is a garage called G Werks in Littlehampton that specialise in the tuning etc of V Dubs, but also do servicing at a cheaper price than Franchise.

Hope this helps.
