First time using New Forest Autocentre and I cannot sing their praises enough. Had them fit catless downpipes on my BMW 335i. From the first call they were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. These guys really know their cars. Would recommend without any doubt. I will be using their services again. Thanks again guys.
