Renault turbo specialist in Bristol
« on: 13:39, Sun 03 March 2013 »
Hi all, not been on here in a long time due to selling my 5 but just bought a new one :)

The car has a few problems with it and I would like to take it to a specialist in or near Bristol just to get a full check done and anything wrong fixed.

Does anyone know of any? I had a quick look on google but couldn't find anything.

Thanks

I think a garage specialising in just Renault Turbos might be hard to come by, I doubt they would get enough work to live off. There are a few places out there that specialise in the R5 but your unlikely to find one in every town.

If it's bodywork, suspension etc then any half decent garage should be able to give it the once over and tell you if there's anything obviously wrong with it. If it's engine tuning your looking for then somewhere that knows how to work with carb engines and has access to a rolling road would be best.

Ideally though, especially for saving on labour charges it would be a good idea to think about learning to do it yourself, maybe some friends with more knowledge/experience could be payed with beer tokens.  :mrgreen:

Hi, thanks for the reply. I was looking for a garage to give the engine a full check as it seems like its running a little funny and seems to be throwing oil back up? I'm not very good with mechanics but am keen to learn so would be good if someone local who knows about these could look. Haven't seen a 5 in Bristol for a long time though.
