VOLKSWAGEN – AUDI – SEAT – SKODA SERVICE PARTS AND REPAIRS – TRADE PARTS AND DELIVERIES
John Bowles VW Repairs was established in 1979 as a small garage in Sevenoaks, specialising in Volkswagen and Audi. Due to an increasing customer base, larger premises were required and a move to their current location in Dunton Green was made in 1984.
With vehicle manufacturers moving in the direction of Fuel Injection and Electronic Ignition, we joined Bosch in 1986 and became a Bosch Jetronic Centre, investing in Bosch Diagnostic equipment and extensive training.
1993 saw the opening of an extra branch in Tunbridge Wells with 3 members of staff, Graham Smith (Manager), Keith Draper (Senior Technician), and Percy Leach (Delivery Driver).
During 1996, Ken Large replaced Percy Leach, and Shane Fuller joined as a Trainee Technician. Shane later qualified in 1998. Tim Higgs joined as a Trainee Technician in 2004. In August 2004, Tunbridge Wells joined the Bosch Car Service network. A third ramp was installed to accommodate the extra workshop staff, along with further investment in diagnostic equipment.
