The dealerships in this town are at best very very expensive and and worst, expensive and useless. Trying to avoid any unnecessary four digit repair bills on a car that today is worth twenty grand or less. Who do y'all go to for work on your GenIII cars? I had visited British Eurotech a couple times and had some good experiences but another issue where they were unable to diagnose a problem. Overall seemed like nice people (Yelp says they have closed?). I saw a lifted Disco1 running around town with British Car Service livery on the sides and I believe I spoke with them on the phone once, but who do y'all use? Does it pay to have a Land Rover specialist or are these fine to just take to your trusted inexpensive mechanic? I usually err toward going to specialists but honest mechanics are tough to come by, especially in this town. Just figured I'd ask you guys who you liked if there are other members in the LA area. Hell I'll even take dealership recommendations if I have to because I could use a couple things they might be better suited for.

Apologies as I don't see an edit post button (even though it says I have permission). The shop I had been to previously was South Bay British, not British Eurotech.

I've only used The Rover Spot, that was for a transmission leak/new front bushings. I felt like I was taking my car to be fixed by the Russian Mafia - in their defense they work in a dodgy part of town surrounded by scrap yards - so it feels a little off. However there were inexpensive and the work was decent.

How about Sherman Oaks Exclusive? I've thought about using them from time to time.

Sherman Oaks bought a used VANOS unit from me and tried returning it because it was "defective and did not fit", I even had to help them with instructions on M62tu timing which I suppose was for a VANOS unit I didn't sell them, I took a $100 loss.

That should say a lot about their business ways. POSs they are

I didn't have a positive experience with Sherman Oaks Exclusive with my P38a there years ago.

Never went back.
