Just wondered if anyone knew of any good Rover/MG specialists in Preston. My BRM needs servicing but I don't trust other garages.

I heard there was a place in walton summit, preston??? Anyone know!?!

Didn't know you lived in Preston Martin. Maybe I've seen you in your BRM. I do see one around the Bamber bridge area from time to time.

Bamber Bridge? Is that the place also known as Tardy Gate?

Browns of Longridge shut down in 2004, but their Mitsubishi garage in Grimsargh is still going. Not sure if they still have the tools to service though, as everything was auctioned off after they closed down. It's now a Booths supermarket. Shame really, as they were a great dealer. I worked for them on sales for five years back in the good old nineties. Not sure of any independants in that area though.

Syd Browns of Longridge were so good that I not only bought my cars from them I also travelled from Glasgow to have my servicing done there. I have never had such good service from a gargage in both sales and servicing. They were an award winning dealership but lost out when Phoenix opened their own dealerships nearby. Traditionally Browns did a lot of business from BAE staff purchases and as far as I know also raced MG's. Perhaps their local Mitsubishi dealership would still offer the same service levels and could deal with your MG/Rover.

Erm no, but that is close by and in the Preston area.
thanks, must have been a good pub crawl when I was there.

I seem to recall walking in to Preston on a disused railway bridge and seeing the factory where "BAXI" fireplaces are made! Must have been a lot of :beer2: ...

Give signature a bell, i asked same q today. someone here recomeded it. Very helpful and they know their rovers/mg's (i think the staff are from the old rover dealership that was in leyland and then moved to the docks (before the crash))

..no idea re prices though. ....they did seem busy so guess not murderous.
