Has anyone used Cartronics to repair their amp in their 997.1 non bose?

https://www.cartronics.co.uk/Porsche-Amp-ASK

I just phoned them, they want £79 to look at it, let alone fix it! Oh and can't give me even a rough idea of cost to fix it........

Can't say they are filling me with confidence.

Sure they would, I just hate the "no we can't give a rough idea of cost" attitude......

Yes just been looking at them. How did it work? Assume you post the amp to them, they repair, and send it back? Was it simple to remove and reinstall?

cheers

So I emailed Tore earlier today and he had replied within 2 hours, on a Sunday!

For the record and other people looking at the same, they take the amp, repair and make some improvements so much so that they give a 5 year warranty on the amp. All for 120 Euros including registered shipping back to you.

So, will likely be going ahead this week and will keep you all informed. Tore seems to think every single amp will fail at some time!
