Thanks, yes I also saw the one in South Croydon, DRA services ? I'm going to give them a shout, given that fact my bongo is more or less off the road, I'm trying to find one as close as possible to avoid high recovery costs.

I know the Blythe Hill tavern, great Guinness ! I've taken the Bongo to DRA Services in South Croydon (with a little help of a flatbed truck after overheating again...). Thanks for all your suggestions I'll report back.

Hi

I'm looking for bongo servicing in the Godalming / gudford area. Dormansland is over an hour away, anyone used a place further west?

Thanks. Dave

I had my cam belt kit/turbo pipe leak/coolant system flushed/refill/bled. Not a peep since it was done and with a smile and some good advice thrown in as well. D2 Services Kent (on the Bongo list as well).

Hi Chris VB, Have you (or anyone else) had any more dealings with Mersh Brothers since September? I'm looking for some works and Bellingham would work well for me as I live in Eltham. Thanks alot.

Hello!
Does anyone know of a Bongo specialist in the Ashford/Canterbury/Maidstone area of Kent? My bongo needs a service and I want my Billie in good hands!
Thank you,
Katie

After a rather disappointing liaison with an independent mechanic I now have D and D Autos of ASHFORD. A family run concern that does an excellent job.

My Bongo is now running as well as when I first bought it, if not better. Unfortunately an accident has wounded the Bongo and we have to wait to see if it has to be put down or it can have reconstructive surgery. Call out The Super Vet!!

Cheers. Pete.

How fantastic to see a post from you guys on here after all this time, and that you still have the Bongo. Fingers crossed it can be fixed. I have thought of you from time to time and wondered how you were. Best wishes from up here in Cheshire. I retire tomorrow :-) Mike

Hello Mike, thanks for your welcome, glad to be back.
Congrats on your retirement, you'll probably be more occupied than when working.

These guys are amazing, servicing, repairs, crash repairs and the best paint jobs I've seen.
They did my Bongo arches and colour matched the sides of the car as well.
