    "Love these guys! My car is over 20 years old and this is the only place I take it now. We've moved an hour away but still worth the drive. Honest, reliable, and value for money, couldn't rate them highly enough."

    "My sister told me about Lyall and i had to see for myself. This is the best place i have ever taken my vehicle to. As a woman i often feel like some mechanics try to charge more where as Lyall has been nothing but a professional. He has gone beyond the call and i think he\'s incredible. I\'ve moved to Hamilton after the quakes and i still MISS THIS MECHANIC!!!!"

    "I found New Brighton Automotive on the NoCowboys website and was initially skeptical that all the positive comments could be genuine. After using their services, I am totally convinced that they are. I honestly cannot rate this business, or the communication and level of service provided, highly enough. Lyall was absolutely fantastic to deal with, checked with me before proceeding to carry out work, the guys finished the job in good time, and charged an amount that bettered quotes received from 4 other garages (in one instance by more than 50%!). I was completely satisfied with the job they did and will now not take my car to any other workshop."

    "I found this business on No Cowboys when I wanted a WOF done for my car and was so pleased with their customer service and communication that they have become my regular garage. These guys know the meaning of good old fashioned service and even tho the area has been damaged during the quakes, Lyall and the guys have been up and running within 48 hours and kept their commitments to their customers. I would happily recommend them to anyone!"
