Very good. My Bmw 3series i318 from 2002 was having heavy misfires, rough idles and would lose power in the middle of driving. I decided to take to to C and R motors. Since they were working on a few cars already so until its my turn it would take an hour or two, so i deiced to leave the car there and come back home. Upon starting work on my car, i was kept up to date on the situation, what they found and what they were doing. The next day morning i was given a call by them telling me the car is ready to pick up. To my surprise the car had been fixed and it turns out to be a much more simple problem compared to what i actually thought. I believe it was the VVT sensor acting up. I was charged £180 with Vat for the manual labor/replacing Spark plugs with higher quality ones and the diagnostic test itself. Overall i would recommend this place, they know what they are doing and they do their job honestly.
Very good service with honest feedback in relation to what needs changing or seen to within a specific time period. I would definitely recommend this garage.
Did the work the following afternoon. Great service, good price. Definitely recommend
I went for a abs fault, they very professional and friendly fix it in no time, I sincerely recommend this garage, they deliver as promised. I am making this my repair garage for the future
Great service and high quality work. Bob was very knowledgeable and helpful, and price was fair.
The most friendly accommodating garage I have ever encountered, they made me feel at ease and explained fully how the clutch worked and what they would do to replace it. I would send my grandmother there with the confidence that she would be looked after respectfully, a professional service and even did the job to suit me. Many thanks to all the staff concerned.
Fantastic service, great price. I’ll be definitely coming back

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.
Long story short, my car was involved in a minor accident at a Car park. It has hit a pole which has left the front bumper dented, cracked, as well as the driver side front wing gone out of alignment. Upon receiving this quote. I did not contact this garage. I was looking around for the best quote and then Billy, a really nice guy gave me a call. My first impression was wow. This guy knows how to deal with customers really well. So upon discussing the damage. I thought to just bring my car in for a closer look and to get an accurate quote. Upon meeting Billy, I was surprised about the space that the garage has. It also has other services which I will definitely would come back to such as tyre changes, mechanics and etc. He inspected and has given me two option. The first was to get fix the same bumper but I opted to go for a brand new bumper since I wanted to change the bumper in the near future. Gave my car in. Two days later, Car is ready. Upon inspecting the car I was really surprised about the quality of work. The wing is back aligned and the bumper which is of course a new bumper is prefect. Now my car looks brand new as if it was not involved in an accident. Billy and his crew are top people. Quality work and the best price. The level of professionalism and customer service is astonishing. Out of 10; Customer service: 10/10 Quality of work: 10/10 Would definitely come back again and highly recommended.
Billy did a fantastic job of repairing a dent to the passenger front door on my Fiat 500. Careful attention to detail and provided excellent work at a very competitive price. Thank you so much, Billy!!
4 fab wheels were a pleasure to work with! Billy was extremely friendly and helpful, explaining everything very clearly and taking very good care of the car. He contacted me periodically throughout the process to keep me updated on the progress of the repair and was always available to answer my questions. I would strongly recommend him and his team to anyone who wants a trustworthy and professional service! Thanks for everything, Billy!
The car has been picked up and returned in 2 days in an immaculate condition. Great value for money, thanks Billy.
Billy is honestly one of the friendliest guys i’ve had the chance of dealing with in all the time i’ve spent dealing with garages and their staff. He is very friendly and understanding and the communication is great. My car was repaired at a very competitive price and the job done was 10/10, not only that but in only a couple of days. My car was also picked up by a tow truck at a very good price. My car now looks as good as new or even better i’d say and if you’re to get a quote from Billy do not hesiatate at all! Would definitely recommend and i look forward to doing further business with Billy and his team in the future Thanks mate!
This was my first visit to Car Diagnostic Services Ltd for a whole clutch system replaced along with dual mass flywheel replacement including parts with & labour with 12 month warranty. The whole experience could not have been better. From booking in the car including pick up and delivery with peter who was brilliant. I was kept informed at all times of progress. I was made to feel like a real customer , not just a person who owned a BMW. The way I was treated was one of the best customer service experiences I have had in past 10 years of owning BMW motoring. Peter has clearly got the team working as one which makes you feel great about choosing Car Diagnostic Services Ltd to manage and deal with your car. Well done and thank you.
I highly recommend Peter and his team. Although I was initially slightly sceptical as I had never delt with CDS before. I even went to their garage half way through the work to make sure they were legitimate and to check on the work. All I can say is that I will only be using them from now on for my entire family's car and van needs. The quote was for £360 for a new clutch but the car needed quite a lot of other work that I was happy to be completed locally. But after they collected the car their communication was impeccable with video messages to demonstrate any new discoveries. They were exceptionally patient with me whilst I deliberated the options. In the end I had all of the outstanding work carried out by Peter and his team who were very kind to do the vast majority of the work for free with me only paying the cost value of the parts (I checked the car parts price with europarts and I could not buy them cheaper than they supplied them to me for) they even washed and valeted the car and delivered it back to me on time as promised. In short they saved me a lot of money, gave me an absolutely first class service, delivered far more than they promised and provided consistantly excellent communication throughout. I encourage anyone reading this to not hesitate but put their trust in this garage; they have more than earnt mine.
The service I received was excellent. They collected the car and dropped it off all in a day, they made sure I was happy with the work before asking me to pay. And finally they called me to make sure they could drop the car off in advance so I could make sure I was in. I would definitely use them in the future.
Picked car up on time and changed clutch and flywheel using best quality parts. Also did a health check and found egr needed cleaning and an engine mount was worn and would need changing but was safe to drive with . Car back same day. Very pleased with all work . All worn part given back for me to inspect and diagnoses spot on
Great work, very quick. Kept me informed all the way through and did some extra jobs at no extra charge. Very polite. Would recommend them.
Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about MOT services. However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
An MOT is a service provided by garages which every car is legally required to have carried out.
A cars roadworthiness will be checked during the MOT as each major component is inspected by a trained professional. A garage has to have authorisation from the DVSA to carry out an MOT as they have to meet the minimum requirement to carry out the inspection.
You don’t need to take your car for an MOT for three years if you buy and register it brand new, however as soon as the three years are up, it is a legal requirement that you take your car for an MOT annually.
Below we have included some useful information on what is checked during your MOT as well as things you can do to increase your chances of passing at the first attempt.
The The exhaust system is made up of several parts and components which all need to be checked individually. The main issue that mechanics will be looking out for is leakage of fumes or liquid, as these are the most common issues associated with the exhaust system.
There is very little you can do to help your car pass an MOT if there is a problem with this system as a hole cannot be blocked up unless you are a trained professional.
The fuel system will also get checked for leaks however, by checking that the tank cap is sealed properly, you may be able to avoid failing your MOT for a minor issue.
The emissions of a car must fall below specific legal limits which means that if your car produces too much carbon monoxide or hydrocarbons, it will fail its MOT.
You can increase your chances of passing an MOT by addressing the problem before having the service carried out as it is easy to diagnose a problem with your fuel emission levels.
If your exhaust emits excessive blue or black smoke when the engine is switched on and while driving, there is a high chance that there is an issue. By addressing it early you can avoid failing the MOT test.
One in ten cars fail their MOT due to tyre issues. The mechanic will be checking the tread of the tyre when carrying out the MOT as well as looking for damage such as lumps, bulges or tears.
A tyre tread should be at least 1.6mm and be the correct type as they need to be able to maintain the speed and weight of the car while its being driven.
You can use a tread depth gauge to check if your tyres are safe to drive on and whether they will pass the MOT, if the tread is less than 1.6mm, your car will fail.
It is also important to ensure your tyres are fully inflated and the pressure is correct as this is another issue which will likely result in failure.
The parts being checked will consist of windscreen wipers, windscreen, wing mirrors, rear view mirror and windows. It will be obvious that you will fail your MOT if your view of the road around you is impeded.
This could be caused by broken or missing mirrors as well as cracked or heavily chipped windows.
Your rear view mirrors and wing mirrors must be able to move while remaining secure to provide a driver with an adequate view of the road. The wipers and washers are also included in checks as they must be able to clean the windows effectively.
You will fail your MOT if there is damage or an obstruction in your windows bigger than 10mm within the immediate viewing area and 40mm anywhere else.
You can improve your chances of passing your MOT by making sure you buy new wiper blades at least once a year and thouroughly checking all of your windows.
You should also ensure your screen wash reservoir is fully topped up as it will be checked during the MOT.
A wide ranging inspection will be carried out with the body, engine mountings, seats, doors and chassis. They are required to be completely free of erosion and cannot have any sharp edges which could cause injury.
You must also have your registration plates attached to your car which need to be visible from 20 meters away.
Your car should also be shown to display a vehicle identification number (VIN) which should be etched onto the body or chassis.
The speedometer must also be fully secure and able to light up.
Every seatbelt in the vehicle must be fully functional as this will be checked rigorously by the inspector.
Almost a third of all MOT failures are due to light, electrical or reflector failure. The front, rear, brake, fog, indicator, registration plate and reflectors must adhere to the following standards;
If one of the bulbs in your car breaks you can buy a replacement relatively easily which is something you should do if you are due an MOT.
Make sure to consult your owners handbook before buying a bulb to discover the correct unit.
The horn on your car must also be full working order and be able to deliver a strong uniform note which can be heard by another driver on the road.
The battery in your car will also be checked for leakage and stability within the engine.
Wiring will be inspected for wear and tear and cannot be at the point of breaking.
If you have a towbar for a trailer, the socket will be checked as it must be able to send power to the indicators on the trailer itself.
The mechanic carrying out the MOT will be inspecting the condition of the steering wheels by pushing the steering system in numerous directions as well as assessing the system for damage on specific components.
If your car has a locking devise, this will also be checked when the vehicle is stationary and the engine is not running.
If you have power steering, there must be a correct amount of fluid in the reservoir.
The suspension on your car will be checked visually as the springs and shock absorbers will be inspected for corrosion, distortion or fracture.
We have an in-depth page dedicated to steering and suspension which you can access by clicking here.
The overall condition of your brakes and all of the components that make up the system will be inspected thoroughly.
A specific break test will be performed to ensure your car has the correct stopping power to be on the road.
