Welcome to Car & Custom Garage, Bristols leading Subaru specialist!

Car and Custom Garage was established in 2012 by Subaru Technician & enthusiast Nik Baker. At a very young age, Nik became inspired by the great Colin McRae (Colin took Subaru to new levels in 1995 with the Impreza in the World Rally Championship). Over the following years his passion grew into a dedication that resulted in him wanting to build and tune Subaru Imprezas to be driven fast and flat out!

Nik’s entry to the motor trade began working with Saab’s and performance tuning. His career then moved onto a large independent specialist garage rebuilding engines, performing electrical diagnostics, repairing and maintaining freshly imported Japanese cars. These included Toyota’s, Mitsubishi’s and the Subaru Impreza!

Still at a young age, Nik became the proud owner of a newage JDM Impreza STi. Modifications soon began, building his passion and experience even further. Nik’s new Impreza attracted new custom to the workshop, with Subaru owners requesting Nik’s skills for their own modifications and servicing.

This exposure led to Nik being head-hunted by a Subaru Impreza tuning specialist.

Nik’s high standard of skill and attention to detail evolved into highly successful personal commissions to build and tune some very well known Imprezas for rallying, track and the show scene. Also being a co-driver in clubman rallying and driving on track himself just added to Nik’s experience in building and setting up Subaru’s to make them even more competitive.

With 17 years of high performance vehicle mechanical experience behind him the time had come to build his own Subaru Impreza business. Car & Custom Garage was born!
