"Martin is so friendly, and the service is second to none. I received all the assistance I could ask for and received exactly what I wanted. Everything was high quality and the prices were so reasonable."

"Like all car lovers, you are concerned about the sort of attention to detail your repairs will receive. I have to say that the work done on my car was faultless; the car was returned to me in immaculately clean condition and the paintwork was absolutely flawless. Nobody other than Bright Prospects will be carrying out any further paintwork in future, thank you Martin and team for a first-class job."
