As an owner of a 1976 MG Midget, I could expect to pay zillions for any kind of repair work, and it's a given that the car needs repairs frequently. With very few mechanics available who really know MGs, I'm especially at the mercy of mechanics when somethings mysterious goes wrong with my car. The owner of British and European Auto Repair, Bob Hilges, is one of those people who really enjoys cars---and shares that cult-like love of MGs that we owners all recognize--- and has had many opportunities to rip me off, either by overcharging on labor or charging a premium for parts. He's always managed to get the lowest price on parts (compared with what I've seen from parts dealers/manufacturers), and he's always charged a very minimal amount of time, sometimes eating the costs when a repair needs unanticipated extra labor. I just bought a VW, which I'll be taking to him as well.

Bob, the shop owner, took the time to explain exactly the steps his guys took to diagnose my problem (a broker vacuum pipe,which cause the engine light on the dash board to come on.) First time the diagnostic system did not give out a code, but after they turn off the engine warning light, and drove it around, the warning light came on again. This time they got a code from the diagnostic system and were able to pin point the source of the problem. Very thorogh and attentive.

It's so nice to find a shop that is both honest, reasonably priced and cometent. A rare combination.
