Rave: ETuners - Tensioner Replacement

Postby TimeShifter » Thu Oct 05, 2017 9:10 am

Good service is hard to come by these days. I really don't remember when I've last received exceptional service like that received from ETuners this week.

Anyways just a summary of my experience with Shaheen and the team at ETuners;
On Tuesday (2017-10-03) I took my car in to ETuners workshop in Centurion to have Timing tensioner, chain, and guides replaced as preventative maintenance on my Mk6 GTi. Unfortunately Centurion is almost 2 hours drive from where I stay (this part should be a rant as ETuners should be closer, lol) and as a result I had to rent a car to get back home as my car needed to be by ETuners for the full day. Needless to say Shaheen without any hesitation agreed to drop me off at Bidvest and pick me up the following day.

Then during the day he kept me updated on the progress and other issues which he picked up on the car.

Really if any of you guys need to have the tensioner replaced or have any other work carried out on your car don't hesitate to contact Shaheen! Really great service which you too will be pleased with!

Keep it up!

Cheers

Apparently there is a few lawsuit in the USA that is getting some traction on the failing of the tentioner.
