I just wanted to put these guys on the map for anyone looking for work on their Z. Since I was unable to get my Z booked in at Cougar Store earlier in the year I looked elsewhere local to me. I came across RPM Garage in Birmingham (Erdington / Perry Barr way), they had good reviews on their Facebook page and from the photos were obviously were enthusiasts in the performance car scene.
I needed to get my clutch slave cylinder replaced - to be honest I was pretty nervous at getting anyone else working on my Z especially since I'd been told this job is a PITA job to do well and I was going to Japfest the following week. I needn't have worried, the guys there patiently spent a couple of hours bleeding every last bit of air out until they were confident it was done and let me take the Z out for a test drive to make sure I was happy with the work before paying. They only charged for the quoted work even though I was sure it should have been more for the time spent. I've got talking to one of the owners there, Richard, he has a 350z himself so is very familiar with them too which is a huge bonus.
Like many trades finding a trustworthy mechanic is a difficult task, and there seems to be an shortage of Z specialists in this area. I said to him I would give them a mention to the club since he is a Z enthusiast himself and hopefully get some more trade their way (although I know they are busy anyway). Not sure he's a member of a club so maybe I'll persuade him this is the best one to join
