Independent BMW Specialist - Trafford Area

Hi Folks,

Does anyone know of a good indy for my e90 330d in the Trafford, Altrincham, Sale, Stretford area?

Previously have used Darren Wood in Bredbury but needs somewhere a little closer to Old Trafford area.

Cheers,
Stuart

I used to be in Chorlton and used Darren Wood religiously, now we've moved 50 miles away I still used Woods religiously.

You WILL NOT find a more thorough, knowledgable, honest, no BS, place than Woods in Northern England, so count yourself lucky you only live 5 miles away!

How much closer do you need?

+ 8 million for Darren Wood. Don't even dream of going elsewhere seeing as you're so close - they are in Stockport.

Trafford to Stockport isn't a big deal - it's only 10 minutes down the M60. If you've used Derren Wood in the past and been happy with it, I'd make the effort.
