What some of our customers say

"Excellent service from Paul and Scott and all the team at MDR always friendly and cannot fault their work."

Deb Smyth

"Good quality “home grown” service from a talented team of passionate people, providing personal service with immaculate attention to detail. Truly the home of personal service, could not rate them higher."

Andrew Huxtable

"As a ‘no longer 21 year old’ female car enthusiast, it’s hard to find an auto repairer that doesn’t talk to me like I have dementia ! MDR not only #fixeditfirsttime but they also provided a genuinely awesome customer experience"

Jackie B

"MDR Automotive have been great in looking after my 1975 Datsun 120Y sedan. From the moment I drove to their workshop, made an enquiry with Paul, booked in my first appointment and saw other Datsun’s being worked on in the shop; I knew I was in the right place!"

Becky Maxwell

"A close friend for more than forty years recently needed work on her road car. Being a senior and female she has often been given the ‘old lady treatment’ (her words, not mine!) by dealerships and workshops assuming she wouldn’t know anything about cars. I suggested she try Mad Dat / MDR Motorsport as I know of their great motorsport reputation but only recently noticed they also do logbook servicing and routine, road car maintenance. MDR treated her with the utmost respect, performed the quite complex engine work on her car she’s loved since new, and all at a most affordable price. They even offered to drive her to and from the retirement village while the work was done but she’d thoughtfully packed her folding e-bike in the boot. Outstanding to see a motorsport workshop providing great service. Thank-you."
