    For this NSX, as the owner has already ...

    Some of the readers here may have experienced the same thing…


    For some reason, once I started working on a specific part on one NSX, then the trend seems to follow for the following cars waiting to be serviced.

    When the owner brought ...

    It was a very busy weekend.

    First thing in the morning on Saturday, I went to Oxford to be the marriage witness for one of my best friend.


    Very nice couple and wish them all the best for their future family as well.


    Then, Sunday morning, one owner visited my place to collect his NSX.


    I hope the owner can address some of the points that we discussed for the preparation of future services. ...
