Recommendation Needed for Car Mechanic –  Urgent

Can anybody please recommend a good and reasonably priced Car Mechanic, in or near the Caleta/Algorrobo area, or a mobile one. An urgent clutch replacement is needed. There are plenty here, but I want one that is recommended.

All replies to stevenrowle @ outlook.com



Recommendation- Van Repair Service – excellent

I had been thinking of getting my old Ford Transit sign written for a while but its a 2001 and a bit tired to say the least

I’ve  been following the Facebook plaudits for Warren Phillips for a couple of months and decided to give it a go.
The old van was various shades of matt white with scratches and dings all over but is now shiny and respectable

My seats are clean and repaired and the old girl is ready for some nice advertising down the side, and he did all this in 3 days.

Recommendation  Needed for  Dentist in Nerja

Can anyone recommend a dentist in Nerja?

Please post any suggestions to Digamextra as there may be others out there who are interested, thanks.

Sandor B.

(Please use a search before asking for recommendations. Typing “Digamextra dentist Nerja recommendation” in Google search shows that recommendations were posted as recently as May 14th and April 26th. Thanks.)



Recommendation Needed – Water Softener

Does anybody out there have a water softener fitted and if so has this improved your water quality and reduced calcium build up in pipes.

I have a problem with slow hot water running from the taps, we have a pumped system and we are low down at the bottom of a hill & we get a lot of calcium in the water supply.
Any information or answers on solving the problem would be grateful.

Recommendation – Table Top Restaurant

Just wanted to tell all Digamites that the Table Top Restaurant in Los Ventorros  just outside Comares is well worth the trip
Having visited yesterday for lunch following the walk around Comares just the perfect finish to a trip out.

Food absolutely fab, seating area at the front just lovely and great helpful staff
Then just 50 metres away in both directions, you have Bob and his bits!!(plus his new pups ‘Chica’ and ‘Jay’ – who are not for sale) and Retro with guess what? Antiques and retro bits, just a great little place for quirkiness!
All well worth the trip, and it’s really not that far!
