Hey all, unfortunatly due to back pressure and blowing 2 litres of coolant out it appears my headgasket on my '96 rover 216 coupe has had it again.

Thing is does anyone know of any reliable garages around Paddock Wood/Tunbridge Wells area as paddock wood autos want to charge me £700 for the privilidge, which is daylight robbery.

Thanks!

(1st time i got it done in Hertfordshire, but cant get greenflag to get it back up here!)

Go to Caffyns/Vauxhall on the industrial estate in Tonbridge- theres a guy there who my dad has known for about 30 years. He's the only guy I let touch my car.

Not sure what kinda money they'd charge though!

I agree with Adam. I take my ZR there for all servicing. Fantastic service always. Took the Rover 200 when i had it, there too. Very friendly, helpful staff.

My Dad is Jeff Wilson, he worked there and at the Tunbridge Wells Caffyns for around 27 years.

The guy that does my car is called Norman (the guy with the pony tail). He's looked after my coupe and my ZS....as long as he's alive and able he's the only guy who touches my cars!
