    Chris certainly knows his stuff regarding MX5s. He fixed my notchy gear lever. clutch and changed my transmission oil. Well pleased with the result. Thanks Chris.

  • Lee (Saturday, July 18 20 06:38 pm BST)

    Chris swapped engines in my mk3 after mine blew on a trackday. As ever he made the job seem simple. Not only is his work top class, he is one of life's genuine, nice people. In a world where you don't know who you can trust, especially the car repair world, people like Chris are refreshing. I wouldn't take my mx5 to anyone else.

  • Alison and Bob (Saturday, August 24 19 09:20 am BST)

    We are selling our Mazda MX5 and needed some advice on its condition and value. Karen booked us in to see Chris and he was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. He very kindly took time out from his own work, gave the car a thorough examination,inspected the paperwork,and gave us the benefit of his considerable experience. As a result,we have just put the car up for sale on the Kent MX5 website (thanks Karen) and were able to highlight many features that will be of interest to the serious Mazda MX5 buyers who visit the website.

  • Alex Trueman (Monday, August 12 19 04:31 pm BST)

    I recently had my Mk1s' clutch replaced by Chris. His expertise and knowledge of the marque is exceptional and the friendly helpful approach of both Chris and Karen is outstanding. Highly recommended.

  • Ian Rowsell (Thursday, July 04 19 01:28 pm BST)

    Saw blue Mazda MX5 for sale. Went to look to find unprepared car. But took for spin felt and looked great. I was met with a level of expertise totally unexpected. Friendly informative couldn’t be more honest or helpful. Unfortunately didn’t buy but would happily go back with my mx5 for any future work

  • Terry Vassiliou (Sunday, June 09 19 09:16 am BST)

    I am a new customer to Kent MX5, having just completed my 2nd visit. Chris is an excellent engineer, what he doesn't know about the 5 probably isn't worth knowing! He and Karen are warm and friendly and wholly focused on customer satisfaction. First visit was an engine service and the engine is running better now than any time in my 7 years of owning the car. Just completed a Torsen LSD upgrade...feels like a different car. Highly recommended!!

  • Mark Harvey (Saturday, May 25 19 07:41 pm BST)

    Just like to say thanks to Chris for my second 4 wheel alignment since fitting new suspension and good track day set up advice to boot, great job 👍

  • Grant (Saturday, November 03 18 08:08 pm GMT)

    Once again a thoroughly professional job completed by a gentleman mechanic.

    Watching Chris working on my car it is obvious he knows MX5's inside and out. The care and detail he puts into his work is exceptional.

  • Sam (Sunday, September 30 18 08:53 pm BST)

    Excellent track day at Brands, and a big thank you to Chris and Karen. The car was very well prepared and a joy to drive. Chris provided a lot of help and guidance. Overall a great day.

  • Grant (Friday, September 21 18 09:23 am BST)

    Once again Chris and Karen have done an absolutely amazing job smartening up the engine bay of my Eunos Roadster.
    Chris and Karen identified components that would benefit from Vapour Blasting and carried out the work to an exceptionally high standard.

    I believe before and after pictures are on the Kent MX5 Services Facebook page.

    Thank you so much Chris and Karen for advising and assisting me to keep my car in excellent condition.

  • Steven (Thursday, September 20 18 02:18 pm BST)

    Chris carried out an engine transplant for me. His work is excellent, and his attitude is wonderful.

  • Lee Vincent (Saturday, August 11 18 10:47 am BST)

    I took my Mk3 in for lowering springs and a geometry set up. It's completely transformed the car and she now handles far better than before. Chris has an amazing knowledge of all things MX5, both road and race, and always ensures a top quality job is carried out. Cant recommend highly enough!

  • Danny Goodrich (Wednesday, August 08 18 01:21 pm BST)

    Hi just wanted to say absolutely superb service, very helpful and very knowledgeable. Highly Recommend

  • Anthony Hutchins (Monday, July 30 18 09:55 pm BST)

    Chris Dawkins has been my Race Engineer for 4 seasons now (that's me No80 lurking behind as the background picture)we have had our ups and downs (Podiums and crashes) as a team but I have never missed a race, Chris and the Team have always got me out with the best setup for the conditions and track configuration. and without doubt Chris builds the best Mazda engines on the Championship and Supercup grids, Drivers who run with other Teams come to Chris for their engines, and he is the genuine Yoda of the Paddock, if you have a Mazda MX5 Road, Track Day or Race you wont go wrong if you bring it to Chris.

  • Grant (Saturday, May 26 18 12:14 pm BST)

    Thank you for the fabulous alignment work.
    It is pleasing to find a knowledgeable and friendly
    expert who does exceptional work at an affordable price.

  • Daniel Wheeler (Monday, February 12 18 12:18 pm GMT)

    after trying several different garages with my 94 Eunos roadster and leaving them feeling disappointed i decided to give Chris at Kent Mx5 the car to do some minor work and was very pleased, so much so that in the last year i have had Chris carry out a major service, replacing the cambelt, water pump, all belts, brand new hoses, clutch, coilovers and 4 wheel alignment and have got more planned for 2018!

  • Howie (Monday, November 14 16 06:13 pm GMT)

    Excellent- my mk 3 MX5 was in need of a four wheel alignment. I felt I needed to find someone who knew how to set these cars up correctly and not just rely on Mazda's wide tolerances. Chris at mx5 Services is your man. He set up the car perfectly and was a gentleman to deal with. Definitely worth the drive to Goudhurst.

  • Paul Carpenter (Friday, October 30 15 12:42 pm GMT)

    Highly recommended . Chris is a book of knowledge on mx5's and always does a meticulous job at a good price !

  • Luigi (Tuesday, June 02 15 11:44 am BST)

    Just has a 4 wheel suspension set up done on my MK3 MX5 and it has transformed the drive! Great service!!

  • Tony Earl (Sunday, January 04 15 08:18 pm GMT)

    totally professional outfit with customer satisfaction as the highest priority.
    Chris rebuilt my blown engine and added an MP62 supercharger and and air to air intercooler , the result is a very healthy 211bhp. At the same time he also changed all the suspension and power train
    bushes and gave the car a nice responsive chassis set up. Always pro active ,giving good advice and keeping an eye on the cost , very satisfied and have no hesitation in recommending Kent MX5.

  • Simon (Thursday, February 20 14 10:33 am GMT)

    Took my mk2.5 1.8 SVT to chris for a full service, cambelt change and waterpump change. I also had my alignment done whilst there. An excellent job on everything the car now drives sweet and handles
    lovely. Very good service and very helpful advice and reasonable price too. Very happy with the car now thanks chris!

  • Dominic Sandiford (Thursday, October 24 13 04:02 pm BST)

    Outstanding customer service and professionalism. A true gentleman of knowledge and expertise.

  • Alasdair (Monday, September 02 13 05:27 am BST)

    Another professional, knowledgable, genuine and honest experience. Mk2 '99, 88K from Deal. Certainly worth the 100 mile return trip, lovely roads and countryside to Goudhurst!

  • Mark Smith (Saturday, January 12 13 10:10 am GMT)

    An excellent service and very thorough.
    Great attention to detail and Chris explains all the technical bits and advises on options and settings. Chris takes the time necessary to do careful and complete work, at very competitive
    My MX5 drives great now, many thanks Chris.
