Specialist in Southampton / Portsmouth area

Post by Aggie » Mon Feb 04, 2019 12:33 am

Hi all

I'm looking for an independent specialist around Southampton and Portsmouth. One company I'm looking at is Iridium in Southampton. Has anyone had any experience with them? I'm willing to travel further in Hampshire if required. Any advice will be appreciated.
Regards

Couple of options, but a little bit further out:

Lee Shannon, Farnham. Don't have direct experience, but a couple of members on here have used and are happy.

BMR Performance, Crawley. I've used and they are excellent.

Lee Shannon at Bentley, just west of Farnham; he is meticulous in his work and he knows how special Alpina and ///M are. He has worked on each of my Alpina's and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Yep, I’ll second Lee Shannon - you won’t regret it.

Guys

Many thanks for the replies and recommendations. I'll look Lee up when I get back from the Falklands. It's worth the drive if he's trusted.
