Default mechanic in abu dhabi

Hi everyone

My car needs some work before registration. Can anyone recommend a good mechanic or does everyone use dealers?

Dealer is charging me around 1000 pounds for the work. And no I dont drive a fancy car.....

Thanks

I got this advice a few years ago, not sure if any of them are still valid:

I use a man called Eric, who was recommended to me a few years ago by someone from Abu Dhabi 4x4 club. He seems pretty reliable, speaks good English, and uses genuine parts (and includes any replaced parts when he returns the car). He now runs his own small place in Mussafah, and will normally collect and return your car if you ask nicely... I'll PM you his number.
