Efficient, prompt and made a superb job in fixing the damage. Would highly recommend
Outstanding service and a job very well done!
Janis and his team provided an excellent service. He travelled to my home and collected the car, completed the work as agreed and provided a high specification finish to the damaged area. He dropped it back with a short turnaround and as agreed. Cannot recommend JJ Lux enough.
Price was for a service and full exhaust fitting. Can't knock the service. Thumbs up.
I would certainly recommend this garage.
Job turned out more complicated that expected, and rather than a 2 hour job it ended up near 7, despite this mark worked through the rain got the job done and didnt try adding any extra chrges. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYBODY

Did a good job, sorted everything out
Well what a happy chappy I am! Last week when I first contacted Jay about my car being in 'limp home mode' and my belief that it was a DPF issue he told me that there was 'usually' an underlying issue which he could diagnose. Anyway today I called him and he and his co-worker Mick turned up at my place of work to conduct his investigation. As soon as the bonnet was opened, without any diagnostic equipment being connected and the fact that my 2011 Saab 9-5 is fitted with the Vauxhall A20DTH engine, he just put his hand down to the turbo intercooler output pipe and showed me his fingers covered in an oily mess and confirmed it to be a perished/split hose and informed me that he had done 4 of these hoses last week!! He left me to go and collect a hose, returned and fitted it along with putting 2 cans of DPF100 cleaning fluid directly into the DPF having removed a very sooted up Lambda sensor. He then put nitrogen into the MAF sensor, checked his diagnostic equipment that there NO trouble codes stored, and there wasn't. Via this equipment he then performed a static DPF regeneration and then that was it. Driving home was an absolute pleasure and the car performed better than ever. Absolute superb service all round. Told me exactly what he would be doing and he let me watch!! Can't recommend Jay highly enough and any DPF type issues you may have, then he's the man to call. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
They did the jobs in my parking area at home. Did a quick good job , cleaned up any mess. Showed me all the old parts . I will use them again , when I need any further jobs doing.
Ryan was really helpful, fixed my car at really short notice the quote he gave me was bang on and he did a really good job.

Panel beating is a job carried out by specialist bodywork technicians who are able to utilise specific tools and techniques to reshape the metal on the body of a car.
If you are involved in an accident, it will often be the body that takes the brunt of the damage as panels on a car are designed to absorb impact and reduce the force of a crash by cushioning the blow.
Even though a car may have suffered a huge impact, it doesn’t always mean that the panels need to be replaced.
Panel bashing involves using a huge variety of tools to manipulate the metal and get it back to it's original shape.
Depending on the extent of the damage, the amount of time and money spent will vary, however the cost is likely to be less than replacing an entire panel.
Getting a respray is a quick and easy job which most specialist body shops will be able to carry out.
Depending on the facilities at the body shop you choose, the time the job will take will vary.
Some specialists will have state of the art spraying booths and work with classic and high end cars, these facilities will be able to deliver the highest quality of respray work as the paint and delivery system will be the best avaliable.
However the job is likely to be more expensive than a conventional body shop.
The time taken and cost of the serivce will depend on the type of paint and the size of the area requiring respray.
Wrapping a car can help protect the paintwork from weather, chipping and rusting as well as UV rays which can fade the paint on your car.
Furthermore if you happen to scratch or scuff your car, the wrapping will take the brunt of the damage and so protect the underlying paint.
You can have your car wrapped to display specific graphics if you are interested in changing the aesthetic of your car. If you want a stripe on your car or other shapes, you can make the request from a specialist who will provide you with a quote.
Before a vinyl wrap is applied; all of the lights, door handles, trims and badges will be removed from the body of the car.
Special car wrapping surface cleaner will then be applied to your car before the wrap is applied.
Welding is an important part of bodywork car repair as it is essential for fixing different pieces of metal together.
Welding is a highly skilled job and should not be attempted unless you are a trained professional.
There are a huge amount of uses for welding on a vehicle as new parts can be created and existing ones can be repaired.
Many different parts of a car can be repaired with the help of a welding expert so do not think your car is written off if something falls out of the engine!
Rust removal can be a job completed without the need of a mechanic, however it depends on the extent of the damage and the area which is affected.
Rust forms when an anode, cathode and electrolyte combine.
The metal in your car acts as the cathode and anode which reacts with water (the electrolyte).
Even if your car is under cover, rust will form as a result of these elements coming together if the climate is humid enough.
You can buy specific products online which can help remove rust which are effective at repairing damage, however its effectiveness will vary on the extent of the damage.
The cost of a rust repair will once more depend on the extent of the damage.
Getting a scratch or scruff is common for cars in the UK however they can be perfectly removed with the right technical knowledge, tools and materials.
It’s important to remember that even if you have suffered from extensive scratching or scuffs, a trained professional has the ability to remove them with precision.
Removing a scratch is far cheaper than having an entire body piece replaced like a bumper so always check with a body shop to see if they can remove a scratch before replacing anything.
On average it doesn’t take too long to have your body work repaired when it comes to scratches and scruffs.
It’s important that you get a car scratch removed as soon as possible as it may get worse over time and the value of your vehicle will reduce!
Having a scratch removed by an expert is the best option unless you are a trained professional, as there are a variety of materials and techniques involved in the process.
The cost and time taken to complete the work will depend entirely on the extent of the damage to the body work so make sure to get as many quotes as possible to avoid paying over the odds.
The mechanic will apply the paint to the car scratch, or car scuff, as part of the bodywork repair. The Paintwork repair required for removing car scratches and car scuffs shouldn’t vary in time or cost greatly, from garage to garage.
The bodywork required on a car restoration will be significant as whole panels are likely to require replacement and the ones which stay as part of the original vehicle, will need to be welded, have rust and scratches removed.
A full restoration make take years and they often do, as mechanics and hobbyists use their spare time and money to build their own cars.
A huge amount of car body work will be required on restorations as all of the components will be required to be removed and fixed back into place during different stages of the work.
Dent repair is one of the biggest parts of body work repair and is essentially the same as panel beating or panel bashing which is covered at the top of this guide.
SMART repair (Small, Medium Area Repair Technology) is a type of service offered by mechanics which is includes the use of specialised tools, paints and materials to provide your car with a good as new finish on an area which may be damaged.
Before the technology existed, if a panel was damaged, the entire piece would have to be replaced meaning more money and time would have to be spent on car maintenance.
The advances in technology mean that the speed and effectiveness of body work repair is significantly improved.
According to YouGov research, 65% of cars in the UK are carrying damage which could easily be repaired using SMART repair.
The specific jobs included in this type of body work are;
