Re: P38a Owner Recommended Garages Arizona

I would like to recommend two that I and several other owners have experience with in Arizona.



Location: [North America]
State/County/Region:Arizona - Tucson
Name of Garage: Falcon Works
Phone Number: 520-294-3572
Contact Name: Alan, Bill, Stephen
Full Address: 5603 S Palo Verde Road
Web Link: http://www.falconworks.net/britold/brit.htm
Facilities: [Testbook/Machine shop/alignment/spring conversions]
Any other comments: [Independent that really know Rovers, including Series models and Jaguars too. I tried to get them to try out the Arnott GenIII's, but they like to either stay with factory or springs]

The second one is in North Scottsdale, a part of the Phoenix area.

Location: [North America]
State/County/Region:Arizona - Scottsdale
Name of Garage: Rover Techs
Phone Number: (480) 998 6617
Contact Name: Kevin and Joe
Full Address: 14950 N 83rd Place #4
Web Link: http://www.rovertechsaz.com/Home_Page.html
Facilities: [Testbook/All new equipment/nice facility]
Any other comments: [Independent that really know the newer Rovers, they just started their business two years ago and came from decades of working for the two major Rover dealers in town- (we have three!). The mechanics are real sharp with the factory training, knowledgable about electronics and they both earned a good living from P-38's]

Both of my recommendations are based on my cash money investment in their services, I have been to other shops, and in keeping with the spirit of this thread will not mention specifics.

I had them put my air bags in on the P38 and calibrate the computer, and some other services. Great shop. The also fix my lotus.

I have not taken the rangey down to them yet. So far they have been extremely helpful over the phone and on one occasion they took the time to talk me through a job i was doing myself; their advice was spot on and at the very least demonstrates the right attitude to fellow owners (they own and drive P38's).
