Defender specialist in Massachusetts

Can anyone recommend a Defender specialist (engine, body etc) in Massachusetts (or close to the border)? I need a few jobs done on my D90 and my local LR dealer charges an arm and a leg and does not really have deep Defender knowledge. Thanks.

Which border? lol

John Robison is one of the most knowledgable Rover guys anywhere...and he's right in Springfield(which is close to a border AND right off the Mass pike)

Robison is also on the Rover forums.

True, but don't put that sort of pressure on him....

There is also City Side Garage Holliston, Ma too. Might be closer to you.

I'd also recommend J White's in Framingham. Jeff has a very knowledgeable team over there, good group.
