Hi there

I will shortly be moving to Devon and i am looking for a good T4 mechanic/garage to look after my 2.5tdi T4. Does anyone have any reccomendations around the Bude area or anywhere in Devon and Cornwall?

Many thanks

Baz

Cheers for that, I see that Tottaly transporters are based at Chivenor near Barnstaple as well, anyone used them?

Tetcott garage near Holsworthy and 6 miles from us. �� Whatever has gone wrong Terry's fixed it. Whatever's needed regular work, Terry's fixed that too. Can't fault them. He's a VW Audi specialist with all the correct gear.

Good luck with the move, we love Bude, I'm there every surfable day. And this week there's five of those......

Thanks for your replies, will defo check out Atlantic Breakers and the other garages mentioned, should be down in the next few weeks and will start exploring and catching some waves down in Bude. Looking forward to being closer to the beaches of Devon and Cornwall.

If you see a red T4 come and say hello.

Cheers Baz

Hi Pete

Thanks for that, just in the final phases of the move should be down in a few weeks so will be exploring Bude as my nearest surf spot. Will hopefully get a chance to meet up with you and get some local knowledge!

Hi Jossef

We are just outside Holsworthy so about 30mins or so from Bude and about 1hour from Croyde, Saunton, etc. Be good to know local T4 owners and find out some recommended garages /mechanics to service and fix the van.

Does anyone know if Atlantic T4 Breakers near Bude are still operating and whereabouts they are?

Any advice much appreciated.

Cheers Baz

Well we're in Barnstaple. Any amount of good garages here. Main dealer as well.
The ones I use are as said, totally transporters have been good to me, and also G'n'S auto teck are on the same estate, G'n'S are also amazing at bodywork and paint. both at Chivenor, between Barnstaple and Braunton.

Barry Hews is very good with all things VAG. and also lots of very good one man band sort of guys that really know their stuff.
