I too had used the dealers, Munich Legends but after using Farrell I felt truly at ease, his knowledge and the fact the HE is working on my car makes me travel the 70 odd miles each way to him.even meaning getting public transport too:crying::crying:Interesting discussion. Personally If it was my money, it would only go to a company that consistently works on E34's which means either Faz or
Noel Butler a company in the midlands called NCB AutoKraft - you need people that know the 'quirks' of these engines, such as fitting the later timing chain tensioners etc.
As said earlier, Faz does treat any car he works on as his own (he has done some stuff on my CSL as I simply don't trust the dealer network to do the valve clearances correctly) and if you are prepared to wait (he tends to have cars stacked-up to the hilt) he is well worth it.
Rates are good too
I will add though that I rebuilt my engine in 2002 with the aid of Targa Autos in Wembley 02089039589. I am friends with the proprietor and he is a good guy but he doesn't do these engines a lot, in fact mine was the last he did! Still strong nearly nine years and 40k later.:applause:
Would trust Faz more though as Jonathon remarked he does these day in day out.
