Clogged BMW DPF? Compare refurbishment and cleaning prices in seconds.
garage staff helpful in every way
Overall very good. I decided to pay for an extra oil and filter change as well as it was recommended by the garage. That added to the cost but the car is running great since the work. Friendly staff and a quick turnaround.
From booking through David, to Jamie’s excellent customer service, also William who carried out the work on my car keeping me updated as he went along. Can’t recommend this Garage highly enough, I’ll certainly use again.
I would recommend this garage. The staff were friendly and happy to help. The work was completed quickly and they kept me updated via my phone.
Was very happy with the service I received and would use them again
Excellent, friendly service
Thanks Drew & the guys , using this garage for a while now car mot & full serviced no problem thanks again
Yes. They did more work than original estimate and appeared to have done a good job and good value . Very helpful.
Cracking service from these guys, picked my car up and had phoned with a price within 2 hours. Work was done that day, car feels much better and advised of a couple of things still needing done. Car was dropped back off also at no extra cost.
Quick. Easy and hassle free repair. Highly recommended
finished on time and price as quoted
Excellent service and a job well done. Despite Euro Car Parts sending me the wrong parts, Swanmore lent me a car to go to get the right ones and solved my problem. Well Recommended. Thanks
Paid exactly what was quoted. Car collected, returned and repaired with no issues.
Service was quick and excellent. Aircon is now very cold. No complaints whatsoever.
They have been excellent, or service, expertise and price. After being ripped off by two garages they have restored my faith in independent Garages. I would recommend to anyone around the Gatwick area for brakes, MOT and diagnostic testing.
Great customer service and I was kept informed throughout the process. I would certainly recommend
Excellent just needed an oil change and even advised about my wearing out front brakes. Offered me a good price for brakes fitted next week.
Very impressed with Goodfellas autoz,honest up front and thorough with diagnostics. Couldn't find a fault so offered to get it looked at with another garage (that they know well) for free
Great garage, they really know their stuff! Patrick and his team really do go more then an extra mile to meet customer needs, they are very honest and do everything properly. They managed to fix my gearbox and clutch along with dual mass flywheel very quickly and they have done truly amazing job! They've found couple of other problems, they contacted me straight away and managed to get me back in the road even it was my timing chain. Unlike garage I used for couple of years they done everything they said they will do. Exelent customer service. Can't recommend them enough! They are based just over an hour away from me I'll be using them with any vehicle issues as is really hard to find a mechanic you can trust nowadays but they've earned my trust and loyalty. I really can't thank them enough!
Patrick was very polite and quick with his service. Great price. His colleagues are also pleasant. Will surely use his garage agin
As always a really professional service which gets the job done right.
Very honest and friendly garage. Cannot recommend more highly.
Good, straight talking and reliable time keeping. Job completed succesfully - however, ended up paying more than I had hoped but given clear reasons why (whole electric window motor had to be replaced as an integrated unit even though only part of it was broken/malfunctioning)
670 due to needing new fly wheel. Very good service, picked my car up and dropped off same day .
Payed £35 for diagnostics, said 100% it was the throttle pedal, ordered one in had it fitted for a further £90 including parts and labour car drives perfectly. Very friendly and knowledgeable will definitely be my local garage of choice from now on.
VERY quick response, could do exactly what I wanted
Car collected and delivered on time. Overall bill was lower than quoted. Hard to find such reliable and honest professionals in this age and date. The owner left the car even when the bill could not be settled; this demonstrates that they are in this business for service and satisfaction and not just money.
Price as quoted and job completed in less time than expected! Super quick response time and booking in. Proffesional service and from a very knoladgable and trustworthy mechanic! Will use again without hesitation, thanks!
Top bloke! Explained all the technical stuff to me...Put my mind at rest that there were NO issues with my car! Would highly recommend this garage! 5
Really great, seems that my DPF issue was resolved, Simon collected my car and dropped it off again, and took the time to explain what work was done and what i need to look out for in the future! I can highly recommend RPM Performance.
Jamie was an absaloutep star from start to finish. Very knowledgable. Explained all scenarios. Thankfully he was able to repair it at the best scenario. Would highly reccomend. Job well done

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.
