"Hi Guys, come to my workshop and talk to the person who actually works on your car",..."I can tailor fit your requirements to any budget and style"
Why Ferrari & Jaguar Owners use my services?
It is often said that I am the real deal, what you see you get, no bull, no lies, no stuffing around and I offer Work Assurance on assemblies, Product Guarantee on new parts and full Warranty on Craftsmanship (see Warranties).
Why do Jaguar or Ferrari Owners engage me as their private dedicated mechanic for their cars? Its simple, the only person that works on your car is me, no apprentice, no uni-students, no novices.
I am also a passionate historic race car enthusiast (1960s-1970s F5000 & F1).
I believe mechanics work should be to aviation standards, thus I
double check my work, material, parts and provide quality assurance to each Customer with a full photo archieve, detailed quotes and detailed invoice.
WHAT MAKES A GOOD MECHANIC?
Its like asking who is a good surgeon. Forget flashy signs, glass smooth floors, spiffy customer lounges and glass screens, forget the labourers or
floor staff, apprentices,... have a look at your Mechanics own workstation, if it looks prison cell clean is not a good sign,... or does it look used daily, grinders, welders, strange tools, and assortment of nuts/bolts/bits,... this a sign that a mechanic
lives here. Can you talk to him, ask questions, is he knowledgable or talks jargon, is he educational to you,... does he have time for You,... does he pay attention or 'fluffs' you off, do you get reports, & photos.
Some of the best specialist mechanics operate from small garages, bit like a surgeon, whose operationg room is just a 4 x 4 metre and workbench is a 6 foot trolley,... its all about the person not the flashy factory.

Case Study 1: Customers XJ6-4.2 EFI runs rough, almost like it had a burnt valve or failed injector,... the other suspect item is a failed thermostat
letting the engine run too cold and resulting in an over fueled mis-fire.
Jagmania repaired the thermostat by milling all surfaces and fitting new
