Couldn't recommend this place enough. They are honest and happy to explain things, as well as giving a decent price. They were able to fit me in fairly quickly too. I'll be taking both the household's cars there in future.
Very good service and helpful.
They where very prompt at answering emails and explained everything well, They had a canellation and contacted me to see if I could come in earlier. They did a diagnosis of the light and found the problem which I think maybe fairly common as they had the part there. But great service as was fixed faster than I thought would happen.
Emtec of Salisbury Ltd was established in September 2004 when Steve Kinsey decided to fly solo and start his own BMW Independent Specialist servicing and maintenance garage. Steve has over 35 years of experience in the motor industry and has previously worked for the MoD as well as Fiat, Toyota, Peugeot and BMW dealerships. Business has gone from strength to strength and we have expanded over the years to our now four-strong team of technicians which includes other people recruited from our local BMW main dealer. We believe that value for money is just as important as the quality of work carried out, so we strive to provide both.
We are well known in the local area as the BMW/MINI specialists and a lot of garages do outsource us to complete jobs they have been unable to complete, or correctly diagnose as we use specialist BMW state of the art equipment and have thorough in depth knowledge of these cars. Our work is backed by the Retail Motor Industry Federation and we are also part of the Trust My Garage Scheme, which should give you peace of mind when choosing us to carry out your work.
We do have courtesy cars available free of charge (subject to availability) or can offer you the use of our comfortable waiting room which offers Wi-Fi. We are only 10 minutes away from the city centre and Salisbury train station is also reachable within 5 minutes.
We are a totally independent garage, with no connection to any BMW Group company and wish to make it clear that any trade name, logo or image is used solely for the purposes of identification and any references or links to BMW should be disregarded.

Great professional service, kept me updated throughout. Found an error I wasn't aware of and even stayed past their closing time to fix it the same day. Very reasonable price and will be looking to go there again if anything else goes wrong.

The majority of modern cars have air conditioning fitted as standard as it is vital for making the ride in a car comfortable for passengers.
An air conditioning system works by using refrigerant gas to push air through several components in the aircon system and then into your car.
Whether its freezing cold or boiling hot, it’s your air conditioning which makes driving in such conditions bearable, so it’s important to look after the system!
Surprisingly, over 10% of air-con gas escapes through the system each year. This means that the power of the system drops significantly over time. However, your air conditioning will not be checked during an MOT or service which is why it’s important that you make an effort to have it checked specifically.
Car manufacturers recommend that cars should have their air con recharged (Regassed) every two years.
Even if your car is new it should be something that you have checked as your cars performance could be significantly affected.
This is because the engine will have to work harder to produce cold air if there is an issue with the air conditioning meaning more fuel will be required to make the system work.
If the system has not been recharged in two years, the drop in engine performance will be noticeable.
As soon as you realise a drop in the power of your air con you should take the vehicle in for repair. If there is an unpleasant smell being emitted, this is another sign that the air con needs looking at.
The job of recharging air conditioning is not complex and will not take long.
The mechanic will carry out a leaks check on the air con system before the repair work, to ensure the job can be carried out without causing damage to the car.
As soon as this is complete, the technician will be able to recharge the system.
The mechanic carrying out the work will first remove old refrigerant from your car as well as the current gas and lubricant.
They will then replace it with new gas and lubricants.
The job will also typically include an entire system clean out which is carried out to remove any bacterial build up.
This is often the reason for a strange or unpleasant smell being emitted from the air conditioning which is why it is important to have this job completed every two years.
The whole process should take around 45 minutes as there are no new parts required for install.
The air conditioning in your car should be noticeably improved after a regas if you haven’t had one for over two years.
If you want to ensure your air conditioning stays in tip top condition, make sure to use it regularly as this the compressor will stay lubricated.Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we simplified the process.
We work with a network of over 10,000 mechanics and garages across the UK so we can find competitive air conditioning regas deals for you.
You can then compare the quotes and read reviews from previous customers to find the best deal in your area, before booking aircon regas online.
