When the alternator failed on my Porsche 911 and left me stranded on a small two lane road in the middle of nowehere, I wanted to have it towed back home. But that would have set me back some $2,500 so instead, I had it towed to European Car Specialists in Pukekohe. It was Saturday and they were closed so I had no idea if this was a good idea or not.
On Monday, I called ECS first thing in the morning. Jan answered the phone and put my mind at ease. Jan was so forthcoming and helpful - my 911 was back on the road within the week and I was able to pick it up. The price was very reasonable and I could not have been happier with the service I received from Jan and his crew at ECS.
Came in with an MB G-Class I've been fighting bleeding brakes this last Sunday. Going through the standard yearly bleed, I got an ABS light and it appeared the unit restricted flow to the rear lines.
I came into ECS bright and early and met Jan. He couldn't get to my car right away but informed me how I could correct the error. Brought it back to my shop and gave it a shot. It worked, and my brakes are bled and the module is code free.
I appreciate the prompt help. Next time I run into something I can't wrap my head around, he'll have my business!
I had a great experience with ECS today. I had problems with my Land Rover discovery.
It wouldn't start anymore. I had the owner of the company (Jan Van Den Berg) on the phone and he helped me out. We went down a checklist together. After the list it still wouldn't start.
After this we were almost out of options. Then Jan decided to come and helped me out at my place.
Because it was a busy period Jan couldn't come straight away but that wasn't a problem.
After a few hours he showed up and started checking some things, right away he noticed that the floorboards was wet on the passenger side. He finally found the problem. The Land Rover Discovery 1 has 2 sunroofs and the front one was leaking badly. This caused the floorboards to get wet and below the seats are 4 computers. These computers are the brains for the car. (This was all told by Jan himself). He tried to fix it cheaply because I requested that and honestly I didn't had a lot of money but I still needed my car to work. He managed to fix 2 of the 4 computers with some logic sense. This fixed the car so it atleast could start and run.
Later I made an appointment and he replaced the other 2 computers.
The price for the labour was only for replacing the 2 computers.
Jan is an amazing guy and can help everybody out in every situation.
European Car Specialist is a great place to go and the previous reviews are not showing how determined they are to do the best work possible. They did amazing work on my VW Polo and did everything possible to fix it and to find what was wrong with it. They try there very hardest to get the correct parts. Im very greatful for their efforts to fix my car and to get it road worthy. I would not listen to the bad reviews. Dont judge people you dont know and dont know hpw hard they work to make you happy
