He did.  And I had to unpick the mess they left after charging quite a bit of money.

That wasn't from Hooligan @Carolyn

Rhys, the owner/operator at Hooligan in Malvern is a little rough n ready with none of the typical silver-tongued patter of some garages.

*But* I found him to be reasonably priced, quite thorough.....but think he is taking on few new customers from what I gleaned from my last visit < he claimed he was stowed under with existing work.

Done a couple of jobs for me. Half shaft and rear subframe.  Good price no complaints to date.

It can't just be me who's had an interesting saga with this lot as of late. The cars back with Rogue Motorsport as we speak and once they've got to the bottom of their investigation hopefully I can expand on this experience.

Just as a starter, a repair which was stated to be done "a couple of weeks mate" meant they had the car for 22 months. No that's not a typo.

Wtf.. that's insane. What was the repair?

Dudi

Insane indeed.

Fit a brand new gearbox which was delivered in May 2022, swap Quaife from old gearbox.

Fit oil and gearbox cooler. New throttle pedal and MOT.

22 months later it was transported to Rogue as an MOT was never carried out. I can't comment on the standard of the work until Matt at Rogue has checked the car thoroughly but it has been an ordeal.

Wow.. I hope the work that was done was done properly as I'm going to guess they're not the type of place that provides compensation or refunds. Good luck.

No you're not alone.
Speak with SJ auto sport, they've had to rectify Hooligan jobs.

I never usually judge a book by its cover, but from the photos I've seen of their operations, it's not a place I'd go to for anything but simple routine maintenance. It looks more like a breakers yard to me.
On the other end of the spectrum you have R2 Automotive with a full team of master techs and admin working turning over a busy schedule of fleet and super cars often 12 hour days, separate clean room for engine builds and now opened a coachworks in the unit across the road.
That's where Im comfortable spending my money.
