Sounds interesting. Are we going to drive to a scenic spot to take a few pics of the "gang" of Bongos?

nice one- thanks..

I have never taken any mechanical interest in a car before- take it for MOT every year and thats it really..

but since i got my bongo and had a few expensive probs - i now know i need to learn lots. i have been takin mine to my usual car garage- but im thinkin since the gasket probs - i need to take it to a bongo garage in cardiff - i noticed on the bongo friendly garage list there was one on sloper rd- anyone used it???

I haven't used that one, but i recommend A & S Motor Repairs, on pontygwindy Road, Caerfilli. Very experienced in bongo repairs and servicing, give them a call!

02920 859191

See you soon

For routine servicing etc I use "The Bongo Shack" but otherwise its like most people in and around Cardiff, A & S. Mind they cocked up bleeding my Bongo so my trust in them has gone.


Back to the run... looks like I have the time off work.. yeeyy..... 8)

So shall we do that run out to Kenfig as somewhere to go?

I think I can still make it, yes. Hopefully I can persuade the family as well.

Hi mwnci, think this is the garage you want: Major Motors Sloper Rd Cardiff Tel:02920 398873, Fury member 'Gabby' is having his v6 repaired there at the moment. Might be worth PM' ing him for a chat :wink:

Hope this helps
