"If you're looking for a VW specialist garage that will deliver on its promise to take care of you, and your treasured VW, you have found it with Ian at E’s Autos.
I look after a selection of classic cars and I'm a purist at heart - I'm fussy about the details and I like things done properly. Ian at E's Autos certainly knows what he is doing, but what sets him apart is his passion and his rock solid work ethic. These attributes, combined with his easy going personality, make him a joy to deal with.
I bought the best 57 oval I could find because I simply love the shape and that wonderful, low tech, classic personality that comes with them. It was a search that took me the best part of 2 years, and after this search I needed someone who I could trust to tell it to me straight, and to fix things properly.
Not only did I find that with Ian, but I found someone whose work is conducted with the utmost of care and respect, and to the very highest standards. Ian did an extensive reconditioning exercise, during which there were many things to attend to, throughout the process I always received an informed opinion and a clear analysis of the problem with suggested solutions."

"I have always relied on E to look after my Aircooled VW's and I would send my watercooled daily driver to him if i didn't have other friends with VW garages, who would take offence lol, but my pride and joy, my Ghia always goes to E. His passion is only eclipsed by his knowledge! It is always good to know that E's work is amongst the best in the industry!"

"Ian built the vintage speed motor on our '65 bug. It was a very technical build with unusual specialist parts coming from different parts of the world, and a lot of detailed and accurate work needed to put it together and make it all work. The motor is a work of art and runs and pulls great - and that was five years ago - it's still going strong after many, many fun miles. We always go back to Ian for tune ups etc and would definitely go back for another vintage speed or stock engine build."
