Jack Barclay Audi vs MRC Tuning

Post by y700suf » Tue Nov 19, 2019 12:51 pm

Hi,

I wanted to check whether any R8 V10 (Plus) owners had experience of both Jack Barclay Audi in Wimbledon and MRC Tuning in Banbury.

I've never used Jack Barclay Audi before but understand they are highly experienced Audi master techs with specific expertise in RS/R8 models.

I have experienced MRC Tuning for the past 6 years but understand they don't see too many R8 V10s.

Jack Barclay Audi is 20 miles away for me vs. MRC Tuning which is almost 100 miles away and while I would always go the distance for the best service, I want to get views from those who have had their cars looked after by either.

Of course, if there are any other garages recommended, open to suggestions.

Jack Barclay for servicing (insist that one of their R8 master techs works on your car) and MRC for any tuning needs you have IMO.

Thanks for the perspective.

Having visited JB Audi, I'm not filled with huge confidence although definitely better than WL Audi.

Having said that, WL Audi is a very low bar!
