Patric is a great man he knows what he is doing plus he good at his word
Quote was very reasonable compared with the dealership I have been using. Patrick collected car, did job and called me when he was leaving to return it. All done , no hassle. Nice guy, will be giving him another job to do in the next 2 weeks, Well pleased up to now, would recommend
Patrick had been servicing my Audi R8 for three years now, and in this time he has provided me with consistent first-class customer care. My car (a 2008 V8) has had a number of common faults, including front shock absorber failure, a coolant leak and oil leaks. Using his contacts and expertise, Patrick has fixed all of these faults with OEM parts, at big discounts over what a main dealer would charge. The most recent repair involved replacing the sump tray, which had distorted due to heating/cooling and was leaking oil. This is a specialist job which an Audi dealer with have charged at least two to three times what I paid to repair. Patrick is always true to his word - a real gem in the unreliable world of motoring!
Patrick is a lovely gentleman, very trustworthy and honerable. Bless him!
Absolutely fantastic, recommend!
Excellent. Ordered and fitted part, let me know what time the part would arrive, messaged to confirm, fitted and ready to go within an hour, Great price and quality of work.
Very easy to get in contact with and they were flexible with making an appointment. I had to cancel on the day I was meant to bring it in and they were very accommodating and said I could bring it in the next day instead. When I got there they were polite and professional, and got the work done straight away. I had new front brake pads and discs fitted within 45 minutes, and at an excellent price. Would highly recommend, and I will definitely go back to them if I needed something fixed.
Great little garage with highly skilled mechanics. Were able to replace the timing belt and waterpump on my passat within a just a few hours at an unbeatable price. Highly recommend- Nick
Lovely and kind person, highly recommend him, his personality is great. Was very nice to meet him, everything was very clear and professional.
Hi there, I gave my car BMW 2011, 320 D to Anees for annual servicing, MOT, Front right side light change and Fan belt replacement. He took less time to establish the issues in my car and advise correctly what needs to be done and I found him very professional in his advice. Also, he delivered on time as per his estimated time of delivery. I recommend Anees for good services of BMW in Hounslow. And last but not the least, he is not jack the ripper. Thanks Anees, keep up the good works. Cheers, Prasun
Great job done Was very quick to get the parts and do the job and at half the cost of local garage. Would defiantly use again
They where here on time and got the job done in the rain , cant ask for more than that ,.
Fast, painless, hassle free process! Would definitely recommend and use again.
Replaced cv joints and boots. Excellent job coming to my office very convenient.
Lovely guy, very helpful and seemed to know what he was doing - would recommend :)
Eagle Autos is awesome. I think i spoke with Roberto on the phone more in three days than i have spoken to my wife in a year!! My clutch died on the Tuesday afternoon and i picked the car up on Thursday afternoon. it transpired that both my slave cylinder and DMF had failed. Roberto kept me informed at all stages from quotation to repair, ensuring that i had all the information i needed. He also advised of other issues that i was already aware of and when they found that my oil levels were too low, they topped it up as matter of course. MY CAR FEELS AND DRIVE LIKE NEW!!! Friendly, knowledgeable, fair and courteous are all words i would happily use to describe the service i received from these guys. Would recommend them to all that i meet. great company.
Excellent customer service and job done with no additional costs. Will be coming back again if need be. Very good first impression!
Eagle Autos were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Great communication & service throughout, originally went in to look at my faulty exhaust & electrics, both issues were resolved and a new set of tires were added, all within a day - would definitely use these guys again in the future!
Highly recommended! Done a great job and was looked after very well! Please use 100% recommended
Very nice experience. This was the only garage that actually supplied me with clear quotes, answers to my requests and all continued communications...and carried out the work on time as agreed. All thanks to Ivy, she is a true Wonder Woman! Her team were very polite too and returned the car clean. Pricing was excellent too, to the point I thought they were going to add more VAT - not the case; thus I had a little more work, that was bugging me, completed on the same booked visit. I can keep going on about how nice the whole experience was but it's my garage now, go elsewhere! Only downside (nowhere is perfect), is the slight tight entrance (not that bad really), but they will kindly drive if you wish and I'm not sure the customer care will be up to Ivy's standards when she's on holiday.
Great service, lovely people and resonable price.
Correct garage, good technicians
Ended up being a wishbone causing problem so had most suspension parts changed that side aswell to save it needing again in the near future! was all done nicely
Great customer service and good value for money. Initially I planned to buy the parts myself as I found a really good offer but the garage matched that offer so the only thing I had to do was to show up on the day. I would definitely use again.
Good job done, genuine parts used and very good with customer services. Sahil has been exceptionally very patient. I would recommend this garage to everybody and I will definitely go back to them again. The clutch was changed including the fly wheel and they also adjusted my hand brakes.....Sahil has been prompt on picking up the phone and has been a good listen and advisor. Courtesy car was provided. EXCELLENT SERVICE.
Had my car for a Full service MOT and change of rear disc brake and pads. Easy transaction as they communicate well through the phone and messaging here on the site. Car picked up at home and was on time. Called again mid day that job was done. Car arrived to me in the afternoon, paid through online banking. I am not sure if all checks and topups have been done this is because I have placed water on my windscreen washer reservoir prior to pickup and noticed that no topup on it was done. Its the same water that i have put on it. I have informed 4wheels about it and they said they will check CCTV about it but never got back to me. I know that they changed the oil for sure as I checked the oil dip stick, and the added job request of disc brake and pads as they are visible. Not sure about the others. Seen my battery terminals untouched as well. Saw good reviews for this garage but couldnt give 5star for my experience.
Can't recommend a garage more than All 4 Wheels, they worked around my schedule and were extremely convenient, courteous, helpful and went out of their way to get my car booked in. They picked up my car and returned it on the same day even though I also got them to Service and MOT at the same time of the clutch replacement which they got everything done at a great price. Thanks for the great job!!
Would happily recommend, Great communication and customer service
Excellent expert, very fast and friendly service. The car was collected on time, the service performed and the payment collected within minutes. Expert advice is always very welcomed. Top notch service, I highly recommend it!

An interim service is carried out on a car by a mechanic, who checks a number of key components and parts of a car.
An interim service can be extremely helpful for finding minor problems before they develop into major ones as many parts of a car will naturally wear down over time. The ones at high risk will usually be checked during an interim service.
For a driver, having an interim service carried out is a smart move as you may not realise there is a problem developing and it could end up costing you even more money down the line.
It is also recommended that you should get an interim service every 6,000 miles.
What would you prefer, to replace a pressure gauge or have your car written off entirely due to the head gasket blowing!
The difference between a full service and an interim service is the amount of parts checked. As the name suggests, an interim service will be less thorough than a full service.
However, that does not mean that a lot is checked during an interim service!
In the next section, we will list what is checked during an interim service.
If you would like to know what is included in a full service, click here to see a dedicated page.
Engine oil is absolutely vital for keeping your car is good health and serious damage will be cause to a vehicle if there is low or none existent engine oil.
This is one of the easiest things to check and will always be included in an interim service.
Brake fluid is vital for the brake system as it is responsible for applying pressure to the pads and discs when bringing a car to a halt. If there is a small leak in the braking system, the liquid will inevitably pour out. This will then prevent you from braking all together so it is vital that this never happens!
During the winter months, if a car is left outside for an extended period of time, it will be subject to potential problems. Coolant is a liquid which runs through a car engine, keeping the level of heat and friction down, similar to engine oil.
The radiator needs to have a healthy supply of coolant to operate and keep the engine cool, which is why it is vital there is also enough anti-freeze in the system as well. If the coolant freezes and you start your engine in cold weather, your engine could overheat and damage could be caused extremely quickly.
Having enough windscreen wash may not strike you as critical, however, if you are driving your car and your view of the road becomes obstructed, you need to be able to wash your screen.
Like brake fluid, power steering fluid is checked in an interim service and the reason are exactly the same. Power steering fluid is critical for being able to steer a car and if there is a leak, or even air bubbles in the system, you will be in trouble.
If the problem is air bubbles, you can pump the clutch to resolve the issue, however, if there is a leak, a bigger repair will be required.
It is a legal requirement that you have working headlights so the wiring around rear and headlights will be checked during an interim service to ensure they are not at risk of cutting out.
Windscreen wipers naturally wear down over time and lose their ability to remove dirt and water from a windscreen. A mechanic will make sure your windscreen wipers are good enough to do this during an interim service.
The most common problem car batteries have is dying however, with a jump start, this problem can be sorted. A mechanic has no way of knowing if this will happen and so they cannot check for anything specific when it comes to this potential issue arising.
However, the integrity of a car battery could come into question and they can sometimes crack, resulting in battery acid spilling into the car engine. This is a very serious issue and so the battery will be checked for signs of damage during an interim service to ensure this does not happen to you.
The charging system is responsible for keeping your car battery full of power, if it is compromised, then it highly likely that you will suffer from a regular dead battery.
The alternator can be to blame for problems with the charging system and so will be checked during an interim service.
The most common issue the exhaust system suffers from is rust and leakage of dangerous fumes. There are several parts of an exhaust system which will be checked in an interim service including the catalytic converter which is responsible for taking the most toxic and dangerous elements out of the fumes created by a car engine.
A mechanic will mainly be checking for holes and rust when it comes to the exhaust system.
It is a legal requirement to have 1.6mm tyre tread depth in the UK as this allows a car to grip the road firmly, if it is any lower, you are actually breaking the law!
This will always be checked while an interim service is being carried out, as will a pressure check on your tyres.
A brake test will be carried out during an interim service to ensure your car is able to come to a stop properly. If your car cannot do this, there is a good chance the brake pads or discs have worn down.
Surprisingly, some drivers don’t realise that their steering isn’t what it is supposed to be which is why this service is provided in an interim service.
There may be a number of issues which would cause steering issues including wheel alignment, in which case, a simple fix is available.
The shock absorbers make up a part of the steering and suspension system and are self explanatory in their role in a car.
However, their effectiveness will drop over time resulting in a less comfortable ride for passengers. The large springs will be checked during a full service for degradation.
The suspension of a car is part of the steering system and so will be rigorously checked during an interim service.
As mentioned at the top of the text, an interim service can help identify problems before they arise as mechanics are trained to be able to recognise the signs of a part having issues at an early stage.
This means you will be able to avoid a serious and potentially dangerous situations developing in the future.
The cost of an interim service will vary depending on the garage and the car itself. At the top of the page you will be able to see what the average cost of an interim service is in the UK, however, you can get free and personalised quotes for an interim service using WhoCanFixMyCar.
