    Yes, I bought my BLS from Riders Group of Exeter where the car had its PDI and I have had it serviced at Manchester (1st service) and Milton Keynes twice.

    I hope that Milton Keynes continue to provide support for the Caddy well into the future, they are a great bunch there who were extremely complimentary about my own car the last time I took it there.

    As for Riders at Exeter, well despite me living 230 miles away from them, it isn't actually a problem for me going there for support if I need it. I know the area well because that is where I originally hail from, so I can just fit it in with a visit around my family if needed.

    Manchester is by far the closest to me at 60 miles, but it is a right PITA to get there, that is why I go to Milton Keynes 'cause it's a straight journey there and despite being 30 miles further, it is quicker and I use less fuel because it is all motorway.

    That's a real shame as they have been extremely helpful when I've had problems with my BLS. They managed to get me genuine Cadillac parts but let me have them at Saab prices (yes, Cadillac price for exact same parts were nearly double!) so I'm sad to hear they're going. Best of luck to all the lads there.

    My single experience of contacting Whitequay wasn't great to be honest. I still feel sorry for them though, very sad when people lose their jobs through closures or a downturn they have no control over.

    Aside from body panels and front/rear light clusters (though I have a genuine spare set of rear light clusters in case one of mine breaks) plenty of other parts, mechanical and electrical, can be sourced through Saab parts suppliers and in the case of brake pads/discs, Vauxhall. I've now personally amassed plenty of alternative part numbers for various parts and even new/reconditioned alternators for our cars can be bought for anything from £100 to £150 which is £400, yes four hundred quid less, than what one establishment quoted me.

    Well, for the third year in a row, I took my BLS to Evans Halshaw PDI centre, Wavendon, Milton Keynes for its service. Usual fantastic service from the whole team there.

    Some might think I'm nuts doing the 184 mile round trip, but I can't see the point of using a local garage where I live who I know won't use genuine GM service items unless I provide them (except of course my local Vauxhall dealership) and none of them have the Cadillac software card for Tech 2 (including Vauxhall or Saab) for diagnostic hook up. EH PDI centre do all of this and cheaper than anywhere local to me.

    Car is running well sweet and I can't recommend EH at Wavendon enough.
