All of these companies people have had bad experiences with so steer clear if possible:

Williams Motor Company, Penarth Road, Cardiff
Originally posted by mentalasanything
I bought my new car from them and after a week it developed a fault with the clutch which they said they'd repair for half price. To cut a long story short they couldn't fit the clutch and told me that I'd have to pay for the clutch or I wouldn't get my car back. After 1 hour of arguing I threatened to call the police to which I was given my car back and was aggressively told to "F*u*c*k off and never show your face here again"
The next day the alternator stopped charging the battery and when I phoned them I was told again to "F*u*c*k off and never show your face here again", "I've got more money than you, I'll take you to court for the price of the clutch"
I also found when the log book was returned to me that I was in fact the SIXTH owner of the car when I was told it only had 2 previous owners, imagine my confusion???!!!

I'd also stay well clear of Regal Autosport. Biggest bunch of rip off cowboys in vauxhall tuning.

Mark's Bodyshop

Stay clear of "Mark's bodyshop" in Swansea based behind Mecca Bingo on the way to llansamlet. Very unreliable guy with a shoddy bodyshop. Will ignore your calls and basically fall of the edge of the earth when you try contacting him. I feared for my cars life! lol

T. T. Surefit, Enterprise Park, Swansea
Originally posted by Rob E
Recently my car felt like it had a shagged bottom ball joint on the Offside front. With all my tools being in North Wales and the car requiring immediate attention, I had no other choice but to take it into a garage... I chose T.T.SUREFIT in Enterprise Park. They confirmed with me that the ball joint had indeed gone and I asked them to replace it. After waiting around a couple of hours ( wrong parts apparently...) They told me that they had to widen the split in the hub that the bottom ball joint pin slots into with a grinder due to the hole becoming distorted with all the power from the LET engine and was advised to replace the hub housing. Ok I thought and off I went to the scrap yard to find me a new hub housing. Mr Simes kindly lent me his toolkit this evening and Upon removal of the wheel, there is no evidence what so ever that the split has even been widend with a grinder like they said... I checked the nut and bolt through the ball joint, it wasnt really tight enough, after a quick nip up and a drive down the road the car is now driving fine again. Tomorrow I'm going back to kick up a fuss as I feel they have proper fobbed me off with bullshit.

Sorry for the rant, just a warning for all you Swansea boys on the forum!
