    NEW PREMISES for Badger5 - From 01-10-08

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well some news to share with forum folks..

    After some 8 years of floating around, operating from home/friends workshop I have finally plucked up enough courage to take on Premises for Badger5 Ltd.

    From the end of Sept I will have 2000sqft of workshop (expandable to 3500sq ft as req'd)

    This is both exciting & scarey @ the same time.

    Planned also is a dyno to use also once I am in and settled & the demo has been done.

    So, from beginning of October 2008 onwards you will be able to have parts & services supplied and fitted @ Badger5. This move allows me to undertake work I have previously had to sub out to my local friends VAG garage.

    I look forward to seeing you all soon..

    *UPDATE*
    Badger5 will soon be moving to newer slightly larger premesis, with its New Dyno
    2400sqft plus mezzanine office space, in a newer more modern building, located less than 1/2 mile from where I started the 1st workshop in 2008.
    Going to be exciting times ahead..

    Pretty much most things you can think of..
    Dyno is high on the must have's subject to funding one of course.. lol

    Go Faster, Stop better, corner faster products supply and fit.
    Turbo conversions, the mapping I already do...

    Its going to be a step change in what I will be able to offer from the base of a w'shop.

    Fingers crossed it works out all round.. Its been a long time coming, and a long term goal. I have been trading for 8 years now, so established in doing what I do, and knowing what I know, and the contacts made over many years. Its a business grown out of a hobby & passion. I like tuning things, making them go faster, stop better etc etc.. Its what I enjoy.

    regards
    bill
