Yours, a well satisfied customer,
Independent Customer: Hi, I purchased an Eberspacher D2 heater from yourselves recently and I'd just like to say thank you for the advice and service you provided me. Fitting the heater was a simple swap over only due to the fact you were on the ball knowing exactly what would need to be changed and even swapping a part for the one I needed before dispatch. Excellent advice and sales team!
Independent Customer: Dear Bowers, Just a note of thanks for the good service you gave. I have been most impressed by the quality of the service you have provided and the efforts you have made tracing, what to you, must have been a very minor transaction. I have will have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my friends who find themselves in my situation. (I wonder who your main customers would be?) To embellish a phrase you used, a Regal service at a "non-princely price."
Best Wishes and thanks again,
Independent Customer: Thanks again and no rush. It looks as if the superb quality of your products is exceeded only by the exquisite quality of your service.

Independent Customer: Having ordered a pair of Bowers Cibie 7” spotlights just before Christmas for delivery to France, I have been impressed with the service from Bowers, despite the fact that the courier let us both down by initially losing them and then sending them back by mistake to the UK due to an internal error on their part.
Despite this setback, Bowers shipping dept were excellent and retrieved them and then sent them back immediately. Only 3 days later they were delivered.
I also would like to say that these spotlights are as good as the originals I used to use in the 1960’s. Very good and robust quality with a very powerful concentrated beam. Amazing considering that the originals, if you can find them, are 4 times the price.
All the best
