Excellent service and job done quickly ! A++
Great garage. I knew my car needed work so booked it in for a spring replacement after a dodgy pot hole broke it. My usual garage was full so I found this garage using this website.. ten times better than my usual garage! They found a few other jobs that needed doing and repaired at a very good price and checked everything over with me. They found jobs my garage had advised did not need doing which could have wrecked my car in the long run! Great staff who know what they're doing and fix the problems at a great price and are very fair.. have had 3 other jobs fixed by them afterwards and will use them always in the future. Thanks
Found the fault and fix the problem in less than 30 mins when other garages havent had a clue what the problem was. Many thanks. Highly recommended.
Great garage, would definitely use again..
Great job done with excellent customer care attitude
Quick and reliable service. Would use again and would definitely recommend to anyone. I asked for extra work which they fit in without any fuss or delay and dropped the car back off to me in the time stated. Great job guys, thanks again.
Timing belt, water pump and interim service. Polite people, we took the car ourselves although they can pick up and bring back. Would recommend.
I have used Piston & Rotor before and when I needed work doing this time I did not hesitate to get a quotation from them. Their prices are always fair and the work done is quick and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Great service and only charged me for what needed doing (which was less than the original quote
Did a really good job. Very happy with the diagnosis and repair. Thank you
Brilliant, speedy response and quick job well done for a good price. Thanks again.
I would definitely recommend Paul. My vechicle was off the road, Paul turned up with the new part and had it back on the road in 20 mins. I will be using Paul again.
Great price and mobile. Definitely recommend
Arrived on time, very professional and courteous, and efficiently got on with the job. Delighted with work done. What's more, this was in the evening in sub-zero temperatures. I would definitely recommend and use again. Thanks Matt
I’m always wary as a female of being fleeced with repairs to my car- increasing the price by finding ‘other faults... or did they actually do the job asked’. Well I needn’t have worried this time. Excellent service from having the car picked up and dropped back as part of the service. Job finished on time and at the price stated. Furthermore, I know the job was done, as the old parts were given to me (now I know the parts used). The gentleman who I dealt with throughout the process was polite and friendly, even when I inconvenienced him by going to the cash point. Car appears to be fine at this time. I would recommend this garage , especially to those not savvy on car mechanics/ repairs, as the price isn’t hiked, or new faults and the repair is proven as you are given the bits replaced - complete transparency.
A+ service friendly and efficient service can't fault them will be using again.
Highly recommend this place, after recently moving to the area, I needed a new garage. Glad I found this place, good bunch of lads, speedy work and booked me in at very short notice. 100% found my new garage.
Great service! Took my fiat bravo for service and MOT. The inspection revealed that the car needed some works done as front break discs and pads, one front coil spring, and new rear reg plate. Communication was great from start to finish providing an accurate quote for car parts and repairs. Staff was kind, friendly and professional and the final price was good too. I would definitely raccomend this garage and I’m certainly using in the future. I’m very satisfied and in my opinion they deserve all of the good reviews I read about them which convinced me to chose this garage! Thanks guys!
Excellent professional service received.
Great guys, friendly, very helpful. Came out in heavy snow to pick up the car and returned it once fixed. Altogether fab service. Will use again. Thanks
Despite not adding the price for a filter, the quote was extremely reasonable. Whilst it was at the garage, we asked them to have a look at other minor things. They were really friendly and helpful, what was good about them as well, was they were genuine in what needed doing to the van and didn't try anything on. We will definitely be using them again.
Very nice guys
Fantastic family garage would 100% recommend the brakes and discs where fitted quickly and the price i was quoted was the price i paid. Will use and recommend for all jobs
Had new brakes and oil/oil filter change. Lovely people, highly recommend

Responded Quick. Very Friendly and Reliable. Sorted Problem Out Fast. Would Definitely Recommend To Anyone.

Absolutely brilliant, easy to deal with, cannot recommend enough
Quickly diagnosed and fixed
Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
