Yes it did.

I told him he came highly recommended from this forum, he was quite flattered.

He charges £60 if he comes to your house.

I'm having mine done Monday 04/08/2008 by this guy.......

http://www.subzeroac.co.uk/index.html

Covers Kent, lives in Folkestone.....will update when work completed.

Air con now serviced  Thumbs Up!
Very thorough job............degass, leak test, vac out, regass inc. oil with dye, pressure and leak test again, temperature check at centre dash vent.
490 grammes came out and 950 went back in, temp reading at vent now 6.5 degrees.
It's like a new system again blowing ultra cool  Cool
He can replace pipes on site if required as he can make up new ones on the van.
This guy comes highly recommended and I will be using him again in the future.
Oh he did say he will cover inside the M25 but from what he was saying is prepared to travel further if there are a number of cars to service  Thumbs Up!

Literally minutes from the M1 near Nottingham, friendly chap, that knows what he is doing. Done three cars for me over the last year, and many friends/family cars.

No business connection to me, I'm just a happy customer.

Hi guys, I used "Cool car" air conditioning parts online service to get a new condenser for my 1999 2.5 TD (fits most other pre-facelift units).  Bargain price, excellent delivery.  For North Kent, a good installation, testing and gassing service is available at T S Auto Repairs (Gravesend DA12 2PA) - 01474 564038.  They do most of my maintenance.
