Amazing service, highly recommended! Daniel is a great guy and very professional.
At first I was a bit anxious about using another garage for the first time, but it turns out that I am really pleased with both the way I was treated the excellent communication throughout the entire process. He came early to pick my car up, he even squashed me in for an appointment. I am very happy with the results, I definitely will recommend him. The car drives really well, he cleaned it inside and out it was done professionally that I nearly didn’t recognise my car. Will definitely recommend friends, family and co-workers. Thanks Daniel! And definitely I will Be seeing you again soon.
It was a very good service provided to me by car Technic. Full Valet was done with the car service at no extra cost. Another amazing service provided by them is, Danial collected the car and drop it back. I would certainly recommend this Garage. Excellent.

really pleased with the service from Mike and team after my smart car pure 2003 stopped working. Back up and running, thanks Mike. Definitely knows his smart cars!
Where can I start!? Mike was extremely helpful from start to finish and went out of his way to help get my car sorted before my birthday and a funeral( all within 3days) I’m very happy with the service I received and have already recommended Mike to my friends. Huge life saver, thank you very very much!
Al from Autowerke was very helpful and offered an outstanding pre and post service support which one cannot find easily these days. His invaluable advice and tips on a maintenance of my vehicle and general approach to me as a customer guarantee that I will be reaching out to him with any car-related enquiries from now on. I would highly recommend Al's garage if you are looking for the money well spent.
A complete honest and reliable garage . Had some issue as the parts came without the necessary sensors but Patrick order it for me fast to not let me down at MOT . Thanks guys and wish you the best Abed

All fixed, perfect!
Very Very Good Communication, and the repair work was good. Great Price for the Job done. I did have to leave it in the garage for an extra day, however i would most certainly use again
satisfied with the work
Paul was very helpful even to the point of picking up my car and returning it. They did a great job. In a good time. I'm just sorry my insurance company were slow on paying up their end. Hopefully now resolved. I will be sending my mums car to him soon. Happy to recommend them to others. AK N14
I don't usually use sites like these to get my car repaired, but i was desperate, so i ended up using this site. Out of all of quotes i got, these guy's came out by FAR the cheapest, at least £100 cheaper than everybody. I thought at first there was a catch, like one of the previous garage's i called on here, they quoted £220 for just the labour and not the parts. But NO these guy's quoted me on exactly how much it would cost ! Quick service, no messing around. They even fitted in some missing clips on my front bumper which was nice of them. And also to top that i asked them how much it would cost to replace my back light bulb and they did that for free too ! Great, quick, reliable service. Will definitely be seeing these guy's again if something (Touch wood nothing) goes wrong ! Daniel.
They were great :)
Very good service
Did not use the garage
Great service and price. BMW 5 Series, full service & MOT reasonable price. I strongly recommended. Thanks again
All straightforward, work completed
honest clear and competent I would use them again
They did a great job fixing my wife's car at short notice and at a good price.Nice people. I would thoroughly recommend this garage and will be using it again.
Absolutely great bodywork. Very reasonable price. There was an issue with collecting my car and had to drop it at the garage as they didn't have spare drivers to collect but the work itself was very good.
Very friendly people and a fantastic job
Really approachable and helpful. Even repaired a leaving air pipe without charging me. I'd highly recommend this garage for good service and competitive prices. I'll be back next time I need anything!
I'd recommend this garage for very good service and good prices. I'll be back next time I need anything done!They collect my car and done an excellent job .thanks!
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.
