Nick has kindly offered to have a look at machining a part for me when I was pretty much stuck after being told I can't get a spare.

I will be sending it tomorrow (sorry forgot to do it last week!) And have included the compulsory biscuit offering.

Only right that I submit some glowing customelon feedback after the service I had done today - Nick's a cracking bloke, very welcoming and happy to explain me through certain things and point out important bits to keep track of/on top on for a (relatively) new RX8 owner.

All servicing materials used were of high quality, and Nick was really careful around the car using bumper covers and such to avoid leaning on the car - I just feel sorry for the back of his head given the abuse it was subjected to by my bonnet catch :D

Also I supplied the biscuits, seemed only right given the amount I expect have to be issued to customers - for any additional servicing work or such like, Nick will be my first port of call. 10/10 for 13Black.

Well saved from abuse anyway.

You're too kind, Luke. Pleasure to work on your car and you're welcome back anytime. Even if it's equipped with only half of today's cache of biscuits! Won't be able to fit under your car if I eat them all :rofl:
Annoyingly I won't be able to come to TRAX as I'm riding around on one of the old bikes down south it turns out :(

No worries, I'm sure we'll catch up some time soon - and I'm more worried about having introduced you to Rhubarb and Custard squashies, they could be more of an enemy to the gut-line than biscuits - they're so moreish!

Well I paid Nick a visit on Friday on my way back down the M1 to go to the Essex Meet :thumright: and was impressed with his Location =D>

He showed me a Dion that he is working on for a client to enter the London to Brighton Run in November and what a lovely Vintage Car 8)

Didn't get Tea,Coffee or Biscuits offered but did get a lovely Cuddle from Nick instead :twisted: :snog: :kiss: :inlove: :notworthy: :getmecoat:

Just to add that I too have seen nick recently where he helped (read as did everything) to get my 8 ready for an MOT.


...And there were of course plenty of biscuits available for me. And he paid for lunch at the local pub! ;)

Have seen the Melon today at Kings Farm at his other Workshop and had Coffee there

Dropped Nicks Shirt off that he had left in the Honeymoon Suite back in Germany

I gave his Shirt full protection while it's been in my custody

Saw some interesting vehicles that he and the other guy were working on at the moment
