Good Vw mechanic for MOT need in SE London or close

Post by kai » Sun Jan 17, 2016 10:10 am

Hi need advice on finding a new vw air cooled mechanic/garage in SE London area?

Unfortunately my regular mechanic has moved way outside the London area, so need to find a good reliable one as my MOT is shortly due.

I live in the Forest Hill

Regards Kai

James at VDub in Welling - been using him since I had my first Beetle when I was 17, so that's 24 years....

I think I know your bus, we always look out for it when we go through Forest Hill.
I'm just down the road and have a similar question.
Who did you previously use?

Yeah moved just of the main road now,

But did use Mayflower garages Coldharbour lane Brixton, but need to find some one new,

You have got the small Indrustial estate just behind Stanstead road with Garages/mechanic near the fire station, however not vw dub air cooled specialist, though some do work on them.

I contacted VW Engine Comapany in Catford they recommend Terry's Autos for MOT etc in Greenwich/Woolwich no 0208 305 1744

And who do you use or did use?
