Mazda MX5 Mk3 NC Sport Tech

Simon and his team took in our MX5 for extensive rust treatment and prevention. We were very impressed with Simon's knowledge, expertise and helpfulness. There was a delay due to a vital bush unavailable in the UK, (supply was somewhere in a container ship in the South China sea). Great job and able to see progress at different stages.

MX5 Mk1 Classic Red.

I took my MX5 Mk1 to SGH Bodyworks as I wanted to use someone who knows MX5’s, and they certainly do. My Mk1 needed both front wings replacing as they had rusted through on the lower edges. Whilst there there were lots of other items that needed attention too. Simon recommend that I have the sills painted to match the body colour, and wow it certainly gives a great fresh look to the car. While there they also painted the bumper’s and mud flaps and lots of work that you cannot readily see . The attention to detail is first class. One thing that to me is very important is that they have their own low bake oven , so all the paintwork is done in house. Simon and the team are very friendly and knowledgeable I’m absolutely delighted as to how the car turned out. I would highly recommend SGH Bodyworks for all your MX5 needs. Simply Fabulous.

Simon at SGH was great at keeping me informed, they did amazing work to my very very rusty mx5 that I thought was beyond saving. New chassis rails, extensive repairs to the battery box and inner sills to a very high standard. Would not hesitate to recommend to others or use them again.

Simon and his team sold me a well-kept and serviced Ford Transit Van. From the moment I inquired with them, they were lovely, professional and respectful towards me even though I had millions of questions and concerns as a first time van buyer. They are very experienced with all things car, van and engine related. Since I bought the van they have been extremely kind to me: they have changed the AC, serviced the van, taught me about the engine and electrics, and helped me sort new keys. They have also helped me to strip the inside of the van, clean and pressure wash it at their yard - they have gone above and beyond for me and I am really appreciative of this. It has been great meeting and getting to know Simon, Wayne and also Ben and Jay. They'll always have your back and they said to contact if any issues going forward. I trust them hugely. Thank you guys!

I brought my car to Simon to get a quote for repairing corrosion on the alloys, which had begun to leak air from the tires. I'd had an expensive quote from elsewhere with an estimated 5 days without my car, which would be very difficult for me without a courtesy car, and I came across SGH via Which. Simon assessed the alloys on the spot and said he thought the problem could be fixed by just refurbishing the edges as the main sections looked in fairly good condition, which seemed very practical to me, and gave a very fair ballpark price which I was happy with. He said he had availability to do the job in a few days' time and that he could do it in one day, which I was surprised at, but very pleased if this could be done rather than be without the car for longer than a day or two. When the tires were off there was more corrosion than expected, but Simon very kindly worked hard to stick to the timeframe he had given me, even though I would have been happy for him to have had it another day or two due to the unforeseen circumstances. In the end he worked late to finish it and it was ready for me to collect the next morning. Overall I'm very pleased and the alloys appear to be much improved. Thank you Simon.

MX5 Repairs

Simon and his team completed a couple of important repairs to my MX5 at short notice and to a very high standard. They have the knowledge and experience of MX5's for those fiddly or tricky jobs that your local garage may not have, so I would highly recommend giving them a try be it for mechanical or cosmetic work. They also undertake insurance and restoration work. The bodywork on the MX5 MK1 Dakar I saw while there which they were finishing restoring looked like new.

Simon and his colleagues did a fantastic job fixing up my Ford Focus Estate after I'd been run into by a delivery driver just before Christmas. Simon gave some really good insightful advice in the lead-up to taking the car and even picked it up for me from the insurer's garage. The job is great and car looks as good as new. I think we would have both liked the job to be done a bit quicker, but was dependent on parts being available and was worth it to get a really reasonable price. Thanks Simon.

Simon and the guys at SGH did a fantastic job for me of fixing the back bumper on my car which proved more difficult as it was non-standard. They sent pictures through as the work was in progress so we could keep up to date. Good professional service and at a good price as well would recommend.

Went to Simon with a very damaged write off Toyota Auris which had strong sentimental value to me as it was my dad's pride and joy handed to me when he passed. With the hope of a donor vehicle Simon and his team made it nearly new again and my mum was over the moon. Could not believe the quality of restoration. And would use this company again. Delivered on their promises. Excellent. Thank you

MX5 MK1 Hard Top and Rear Bumper.
Customer Service
Quality

I had read about Simon and his team as well as seen the SGH advert. I wanted a hard top from my previous MX5 and the rear bumper from my current MX5 (both NA's) refurbished. Both were in a pretty poor state... the completed work was outstanding very pleased that I made the journey from north Cheltenham to Crews Hole Bristol. Only problem... gonna make the rest of the car look a little shabby. Existing paint job is still pretty OK but Simon and the team have done such a good job that I'm going to have to get them to do the rest of the car. Thanks Simon, Evie, Wayne and the lovely Holly (and her little crew).

Excellent workmanship tarnished by poor communications

I booked my 2004 MX-5 in for sill and chassis rail repairs, as an advert for SGH was displayed in the owners club magazine. In short, Simon and his workshop team have an excellent attention to detail. The quality of the welding and the finish, even up close is something to behold. On a workmanship basis i would definitely recommend them. What tainted my experience somewhat was the lack of /mis-communications with both me (the customer) and between the workshop team and the administration department. Whilst there were some verbal 'it should be around x amount' conversations, I had to ask for written estimates for work 3 times and never actually received anything. Welding work started without official 'go-ahead' from me - not cool. The only confirmation of the cost came when the bill arrived and was much more than i had expected. In fairness to the team, we did reach a price that i was more comfortable with after some negotiation (i was quite firm about my expectations at this point as i'm sure Simon will attest!) but neither of us needed that hassle. So i think to summarise, the learning points from my experience for SGH and future customers would be: - Work quality is a non-issue. Fantastic - Written estimates need to be given before commencing work - Talk to your customers regularly - even a courtesy call every few days Thanks for a great job. I hope my comments are taken in the constructive manner they are meant, sorry I couldn't write more here!

2002 mx5 repairs

front chassis rails badly corroded and rear sill/wheel arch. Took it to SGS who checked it and confirmed these needed doing but all else was good-I asked them to re underseal as well, and they found two drop links needed replacement which I had heard knocking-but did not know from where. This they also did. Their service was excellent and friendly and the result was a first class job from all at SGS at a very reasonable cost. I am too far away to use them for routine service but will be back to them for any other work I may need-but after what they have done not expecting anything much for a while. The cost was as quoted with drop links at cost and was completed as promised (I delayed collection by few days as was unable to collect when finished)

I handed over my 19 yr old MX5 to Simon when the list of faults started to scare me. He carried out all the work and even arranged for the leather seats to be recovered and refitted whilst with him. I now have a 19 yr old car that looks and smells brand new! If it wasn't for the number plate I wouldn't have recognised it.

Like a fool I parked next to a trolley bay in my local supermarket, & failed to see the metal bar along the edge. I managed to dent & scratch my passenger rear door. I contacted Simon, not having used his services before and he assured me it would be easy to repair & make my car look like new. When i went to collect, he was as good as his word & my car looked like before the dent. Very good quality of work and service. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

We needed our van repaired within a tight time frame. Over Christmas and before New year. S G H completed the work to an excellent standard before the deadline and didn't charge us a fortune. In fact they were cheaper than our other quotes. They even replaced a couple of bulbs that were out and only charged for the bulbs. I can't hesitate to recommend Simon and team enough!

The quote was provided in a few days after assessing the damage to my car. After accepting the quote I was given a few dates when it could be brought in to be fixed.

I broke down 200 metres from the garage and they came and pushed my car all the way there. Immediately they had the car lifted up and found the fuel line was completely disconnected. They fixed the problem in a short amount of time and also cheered me up with friendly chat and great customer service. I would highly recommend SGH Bodyworks to anyone and in a weird way glad I broke down to close as I have now found my new favourite garage.
