I would most definitely recommend auto plaza every time...been there twice...once to have bodywork done..second time MOT and a full service...Rob is amazing!!!! Each time he has full exsplained everything prior to doing the work.. I have recommended him and autoplaza to everyone who has ears..I won’t be going anywhere else
Work was very professional. Would definitely recommend Auto Plaza
Their quote was the cheapest (without parts), and was the only one available within two days, had good communication and did the job on time. I am very satisfied with the work and would go back in future.
Rob and his team were fantastic. No fuss, speedy and solid mechanic. The final price was slightly higher due to an additional part that was required, but Rob was an excellent communicator and kept me informed at every step of the way. Highly recommended.
Great service, really happy. My car runs great now. They are very thorough with service! Definately recommended. Very friendly too. Will use again. Thanks.
Really responsive garage who were really accommodating throughout. They were really happy to help with all of my questions and completed the work promptly for a good price. They even came out on the day of the Royal Wedding and FA Cup. Great experience, would recommend.
Highly recommended, very serious and professional mechanics. They sent an email in the morning to confirm their arrival, they called in advance to let us know that they are stuck in traffic. Very happy with the job and I will be definetely contact them in the future for any problems I have with the car.
You couldn’t meet a nicer and more honest guy. Akash is punctual, polite and a competent mechanic. Couldn’t ask for more. He did a great job changing my timing belt and major service for a great price - no con man tricks for a change.!! Plus the car came back clean and fragrant.!! Will be keeping him as my mechanic from now on!
Akash did everything exactly as he said he would. Sent a reminder message the evening before arrival, so another 10 mins before arriving and got to me when he said he would. Akash was polite and professional and friendly. He fixed an extra belt for me and didn't charge any extra labour. He also diagnosed another two ossie with mine and my partner's cars. I can thoroughly recommemd him and will definitely be using him for my servicing and repairs in future. Totally satisfied with the service received.
Excellent service, Akash was very polite, knowledgeable. I certainly will call Sky Motor Service again and I highly recommend then , good value for money.
Majeed was absolutely brilliant. He informed me of all needed repairs. Bless him he even offered me food. I would definitely recommend this garage as they can be trusted not to overcharge you. Is am definitely coming back, the price is so good too Thanks Majeed and Alperton Car Clinic
Brilliant customer service, was quick and reliable. Price was as agreed with no surprises, also the mechanic changed my cigarette lighter fuse for no additional cost! Would definitely recommend and will be returning again!
Amazing service, great price, wonderful customer service, will be using them whenever I need a mechanic!!! The service was £89, the extra was for a few parts that were needed.
Friendly staff, helpful and no surprises with the price. Would definitely recommend.
Very good service, I was really happy with the customer service
Really nice guys, completed the work on my car and explained all work done. Would recommend to all.
Excellent and swift service. Thank you.
Got car MOT'd and serviced by Sloane Services. It was more expensive than the online quote, but that was because it needed two new shocks and two tyres, and fitting the shocks was a lot more labour. So it was good value, and it was done to time and they were a pleasure to deal with.
Helpful at providing advice!
They were fantastic and i will be using them again in the future
Fantastic service. Great job and very well priced.
I could not be happier with the service I received at 4 Fab Wheels. Although my car required additional work than initially noted and the paintwork was truly a nightmare; Billy ensured the job on my car was of top class with attention to detail - at no extra cost than originally estimated! Many thanks to Billy and his team, I am impressed and grateful for the hard work and quality of service you provided. Honest, friendly and professional at a very fair price. My car looked brand new upon collection! Highly recommend 4 Fab Wheels and will refer my friends and family; you are in the best hands with Billy and the team!
Happy, would use again
they did a great job!
Professional and friendly approch. Work properly done in really a short time. Highly recommented.
Good value for money. Paul was very friendly and he fixed my car In no time. Very nice and satisfactory experiance. I Will recommend to everybody who want good service. Thanks Paul, just in time to organise my trip.
Friendly and efficient service, wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
Paul was really helpful and had the fan and re-wiring done within a couple of hours and I picked my car up the same day. They also cleaned it for me which was an added bonus and greatly appreciated! Im sticking with this garage from now on!
Like most car owners, I have my preferred garage but tried Paul and his team when my usual place couldn't urgently schedule a repair to pass an MOT. Paul took the car in the next day, talked me through the whole process, gave me options and completed an excellent job exactly when he said he would. Would highly recommend.
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.
