Would I build another mnr

Well the short answer is no
There are plenty of peeps on ere that would say yes but all I can say is there experience must have been different to mine
I bought my kit from a bloke that never started the build so when I bought it I didn't now if mnr would help me through the build the same
Having spoken to quite a few peeps it turns out my experience with Chris was the same as there's , I don't want to start ripping into this bloke on this forum I understand he's in business to make money but its totally at the other end of the scale to how I run my business and deal with customers .
Feel free to rip me to bits but this is just my experience I just hope people with the same experience as me back me up a little
I'd just like to say I found Marc to be a nice bloke and always tried to help me

Don't want to go into to much detail but there are people out there with the same experiences just don't think they will post up
All I'm trying to say is that mnr owners on this forum say mnr is the best thing ever and I do think its a good package but its not quite as Rosie as they all make out

Is this a bit like buying a secondhand Ford off ebay and expecting a dealer warranty?
If you didn't buy direct then this forum is your backup
I bought a secondhand Robin Hood (Richard Stewart, Tricky Dicky peripd) how much factory backup do you think I got, Robin Hood owners club got me out of trouble.

Glad I'm not the only one seeing it like that snapper, without details this thread is pointless.

"I bought something second hand and the manufacturer won't help me but I won't say what the problem was"

How that is meant to be helpful to anyone I don't know.

I spoke with someone from MNR about their reverse box a couple of years ago at either Stoneleigh or the Autosport show (my memory is as bad as my project decison making!)... the chap I spoke with couldn't have been more unhelpful.

I maybe caught him on a bad day... or maybe he just wasn't interested in selling a part for a non-MNR application. Either way, I wasnt best impressed.

Still think they make a cracking kit though.

I never said I didn't get back up from mnr I did , but having to deal with Chris and the lies he told things not right that needed returning or replacing and these were things I bought from him
Even though they got it through iva for me the process from start to finish was an arse
Canceled dates lies told I was told it was booked for rolling road Damian didn't even now one week later it went to him things done to my car that wouldn't pass Iva and charged for holes cut in body work cracks on scuttle from holes drilled for mirrors I could go on
This is just my experience but for a firm that makes a living out of this thing that are the specialists it's bullshit

let me get this straight. you hated dealing with mnr,they lied and sold you wrong parts during the build! then at the very end of the build,after all these issues,you went to them to put your car through, the IVA? something doesnt sound right

Yes that's right I must have been on drugs I didn't want to take it for iva I thought I'd let the guys that do it all the time how can a job go from 900 to 2k and you don't know about it until its done

I rang once to see how it was going I was told every thing was ok we've ordered the power commander for it??????? Why I asked because it needs one ,it already had one on it, has it were is it ,

Or you bought a second hand power commander trying to save money and it didn't work! It failed the IVA on emissions costing you the price of a new power commander and an IVA retest! I was there the day your car failed.

Personally found the guys at MNR really helpful, they too got my car through the IVA (first time).

Funny one that it did fail on the test but it was working fine when it went to Daytuner just so you know the 2k it cost me was without a retest and new power commander
I know you were there wen it failed and also know what they had to say about your car and it wasn't nice

Its long been known in private that quite a few folk consider Chris to be a "male chicken", you know that saying about how we make our personal evaluations in the first few minutes of meeting someone..... first time I met the Gentleman in question at Newark 2007 left me thinking the same as listed above, and conversely that Mark is thankfully a completely different animal to deal with.

I know from personal experience when I wanted extra info before I committed to buying that the info was promised by Chris both via email and verbally on a number of occasions but never materialized, hence neither did my order.

Mind you they still sell a far superior kit & service when compared to certain other kit makers.

Sorry to hear about your experience, ALL kit makers need to work on their customer service skills as well as having a good product, as in this financial climate buyers with shed loads of cash to spend must be thin on the ground and those that stroke the buyers feathers the best with a good product too will do well





Some people can never handle the truth and always try to shoot the messenger instead of taking an honest look in the mirror (its always easier to blame another than to face reality), but secretly they wish they could grow a pair and be the messenger !!!

I'm assuming it was Chris I spoke to at Detling a few years back when weighing up which kit i was going to order, which id narrows down between Raw and MNR. He came out with this gem 'we dont let people register our cars on Q plates, only new or donor age related'. I thought 'whose car?' If ive paid upwards of 6k for a kit its MINE and il register it exactly how I like!

Back in 2006 I was in the market for a 7, tried round all the usual suspects, some were very good, one in particular was crap..

Then, I came across MNR, I phoned and asked if I could come and have look at the car, was told be quick we have a kit here going out tomorrow.

I went down sharpish and was amazed at the quality of the kit, the attitude of the guys and how helpful they were.

So, I ordered collected and built mine, had a few technical issues that were sorted out without any problems. All I can say is Chris and Marc were really helpful during the build and after, OK its a business and sometimes they are rushed off their feet as its not just the 7 they deal with so a bit of patience is helpful.

Now I've moved on, sold the car but still get a warm welcome off the guys at the shows.

Would I build another MNR? Well probably, but I'm in the market for something else now, but, I would recommend them and send anyone who asks there.
