Tower Citroen Specialists

Post by vulgalour »

Has anyone used these guys before? I got a tip off about them today, they're not too far from me. I'm finding out whether or not they'd be willing/able to do some/all of the welding on Stripey.

They might refuse on the grounds that the car is too far gone of course, in which case I'm on my own with it!

They're just up the road from me and I had no idea they were even there - they look good anyway. I'd be interested to know how you got on with them if you do decide to take ol' stripy there.

Vulgalour, where do you live? I'm in Ollerton, literally on the doorstep of Tower Citroen Specialists but I was planning on taking my car to Euro Car Care Derby to get a leak sorted. This is only after reading good reviews about them on the net.

I'm just off J30 of the M1 in a little place called Staveley. I'll have to call Tower Citroen, they haven't replied to my e-mail. Shall do that tomorrow or something.

Try Frontlines in Chesterfield, thats who i've used & been reasonably impressed as they did both my octopus's & change'd a front strut & did the ride height, so they do have hydraulic knowledge.
