Not for the first time, knew the faults and cures by description over the phone before even seeing my car. Jules knows every nut and bolt on a Rover 75, top class service at top value prices. Car is running as smoothly as it gets after the JMA treatment. Brakes and electrical problems sorted out on this visit adding to the full service plus intercooler and Thermostat repairs last visit.

"Surely there can't be a better Rover 75 expert in the business?"

By Anonymous, 5 October 2017

Have travelled up to Colwyn from South Wales on a number of occasions now for Jules to work on my Rover 75 after reading of his unrivalled reputation in the 75 world. Every time I mention this people think I'm mad to travel that distance for car repairs and service. I'm sure they wouldn't think that if they had a 75 and visited Jules. Is there even so much as the most insignificant minute metal washer on the different variants of these cars that he doesn't know everything about? Even a day or short break on the lovely North Wales coast pays for itself due to Jules' unrivalled knowledge and price for work that would cost double or even treble at other garages. Whilst there on a number of occasions people have rolled up from all over the UK with their cars, having given up on their local garages in diagnosing and fixing various faults and I've watched Jules diagnose the problem often within minutes as their owners stare in delighted disbelief as they were on the point of ditching their cars in desparation and disappointment following countless expensive visits to other repair shops. It's an complete educatiion about your car just to speak to Jules for twenty minutes or so while he's pottering about under the bonnet I think that he's on a one man mission to keep this entire Marque on the road

"Exceptional for knowledge, care and attention."

By Gareth Lloyd-Williams, 15 December 2016

Very experienced and through approach in all he does. High level of care that I'd like to be able to provide myself but cannot match! Work is very far away from the quick service turnaround. Aim appears to be maintaining an ageing vehicle to achieve on the road reliability and nearly new performance. Work goes beyond what's required and incidental repairs done are often not mentioned on the invoice! My mpg up by 17%. Thanks, Jules.

"Rover 75 specialist to be highly recommended."

By Jim Lamb, 30 October 2016

Drove a VERY long way all in one day follow a prior chat with Jules who I trust total to do the correct job required;carried out leak test on by diesel and subsequently changed one faulty injector.Precise and to the point-car starts/run well now. He is always available to offer help and advise when needed as I personally worry about being misguided by others,often based on their lack of Rover 75 knowledge and understanding.

"unbelievably brilliant!"

By Keith Molloy, 15 September 2016

Read More

If you need any work done on a Rover 75 or a MGZT then look no further! , After several recommendations from owners club members I decided to travel up from Kent to have a number of jobs done, I was knocked back by the diligence and infectious enthusiasm of Julian ("Jules") the owner, who ably did all the work I asked of him plus gave genuine advice of anything of importance that needed looking at, now that's what I call service. It's no wonder that this business receives such good reviews, the fact that owners travel as far away as mainland Europe to JMA is a testament in itself! So good was my experience I am now going to make the pilgrimage anually.

"Absolutely first class"

By GeoffW, 13 November 2015

I took my car from Dorset to Jules yesterday, for a few bits and bobs. 540 miles round trip and worth every mile! I can't tell you what a comfort it was dealing with someone who actually knows what they are doing. Jules gave the car a complete check-over and discovered stuff that should have been done and hadn't (even on a car with full history!) He was extremely friendly, explained exactly what he was doing, and why, and suffered my dozy questions with patience and good humour. All in all a very pleasurable experience. I shall be going back. I cannot recommend Jules too highly.

Fantastic quality workmanship from Jules has brought my 75 back to rude health. He's put in extra amounts of work making the whole experience something special. To have someone so dedicated & capable in maintaining the mark, is worthy of celebration. I can't thank him enough for giving our much loved & cherished 75, some more years of happy life.

"This has got to be the best place to go, if you have a Rover 75 / MGZT! "

By Dorset Bob, 26 January 2015

Read More

Having read excellent feedback on JMA Cars on the 75&ZT Owners' Club, I decided to get my big 90,000 miles / 6 years timing belt change done there, plus other jobs such as the lower wishbone bushes. OK, like many others, I travelled a long distance (from Dorset) but I am really pleased that I did! Good value and I know the job has been done properly. Jules from JMA Cars, has to be rated as one of the most knowledgeable guys on this marque in the country.

600 mile round trip to Colwyn Bay from Sussex with Rover 75 CDTI with cooling fan and a/c condenser problems seems a tad crazy,but Jules was true to his word and sorted the car in time agreed.Could have stayed and chatted for hours as his knowledge of these cars, including the electrics,appears unrivalled.Trip was very cost effective and saw some great scenery

"First rate, would recommend to any Rover 75 owner."

By MANLOCO, 9 October 2014

I brought my 2004 diesel Rover 75 over from the Isle of Man to be looked at. Julian checked out the engine with his T4 tester, re-mapped the ECU to 160bhp which gives a useful lift in power and much better low rev. torque. The air-con has never worked in the two years I have had the car but Julian sorted this and replaced a leaking pipe and condenser and re-filled the system. He fitted a new sidelight and switched off the automatic door locking using his T4. He gave me a pair of tyre protector plates which I have fitted myself. A very helpful knowledgeable man. What he does not know about Rover 75 cars is not worth knowing. Before visiting him he had solved a direction indicator fault for me over the telephone! He was a RAF radar technician and it shows.

"If you value your Rover 75 and want it looked at by an expert at reasonable cost, then Jules is your man."

By whitman, 11 October 2013

I have just had my car(Rover 75 Connie, Auto, 8 Y.O.) serviced and various problems sorted by 'Jules' (Julian Anderson) of JMA CARS, COLWYN BAY. I am not a 'Techie,' but since the garage that I used and trusted locally closed earlier this year, I didn't know where to go and more importantly, whom to trust, to fix my car. I then discovered Jules on the internet through the Rover 75 Forum. His name came up often in the various discussion threads and it is evident that he is well respected by Forum Members for his wide knowledge of anything to do with Rover 75s. After contacting Jules and listing my various problems -sunroof motor, sunroof blind, sunroof drains, (leaking into car) A/C, cooling fan, key fob, service.- I decided to make the pilgrimage from the South East to Jules domain. As you would expect with a, 'Guru,' Jules lives half way up a hill and his lair is approached via a narrow road. Within 10 minutes of meeting him, he had modified the bonnet release mechanism and diagnosed that the A/C was leaking from a faulty joint! Staying with family nearby, two days later I collected my car with everything done, plus a few other things that he had found! The price was not horrendous and well worth the 600 mile round trip to have a Rover 75 expert, whom I could trust, inspect and fix my car. Jules knows every screw, nut, bolt, washer and scrivet of a Rover 75! As a 'Non-Techie,' I am a little in awe of his experience and technical knowledge of the car. Unfortunately, there was a downside. Couldn't have a cup of tea - no milk! Nevertheless, 'I'll be back!'

"First Class Service"

By Bobct, 11 March 2013

I have just completed my third annual (MOT) visit to JMA Cars. I travelled on a round trip of 480 miles from South Buckinghamshire and stayed overnight with Julian Anderson and Isobel. I have always been very satisfied with everything that Jules carries out. The work is always carried out with great professionalism. Resulting in a Rover 75 CDi SE that provides me with carefree motoring.
