Went there for DPF cleaning and job was carried out to a high standard, few other issues were identified and fixed. Robert was very helpful and provided a great service. Would recommend.
Very very helpful always take the calls and call back in time best customer service i have ever seen
Rob was professional and took me through to the whole process of DPF.
I'm satisfied with this garage. Reasonable price and the job done in one day. Fully recommended.
Everything was 5 star
I was at first sceptical about the garage as the location of the garage was not what I expected. HOWEVER the team has well exceeded my expectation. I had a cracked rear bumper and scratched my alloy wheel on my brand new Audi which would have costed me £3k to fix in an Audi centre or other garage. MCS did it within £500 (using new part which they ordered directly from Audi) and the finishing was so good that it looked new to me. The service also came with a complementary car wash. I dropped my car with them on a Monday and got it back on Wednesday. Considering the amount of work that needed to be done, I am very impressed with their efficiency. The team was so responsive and so professional. I will definitely recommend this to anyone and will also come back in the future if needed.
I would recommend for speed. However for my own records a receipt would have been helpful should I have needed to discuss anything after the damage had been fixed
Friendly staff and did a great job at fixing my car it’s like it never happened ! Good job and reasonable price !
Excellent Service and Quality!

Excellent garage. Requested a time I needed my car done and they were more than happy to help me. Price was as quoted online. Definitely will be returning for future jobs.
I found the garage in this website which I had never used before. I booked a MOT and service with them based purely on the reviews other custohad left and I was not disappointed. The price was reasonable and the service was professional. I found them to be honest and open and I would definitely use them again.
Honest and reliable mechanic. Would highly recommend. Excellent value for money. I will be using this garage again.
Perfect repair, on time and on estimate. Good communication. Great customer service! Have already recommended C and R! Thanks guys!
Amazing experience from start to finish. The family run business were polite and always curtious. My car was finished prestigiously.
The service rendered was second to none. They did what 6 other local garage and dealer couldn’t. Very reasonable and straight forward. Special mention to Gary for his skills and knowledge and Robert for accompanying my request at the last minute. Highly highly recommended!
Really great service. Polite and professionals! Always available to contact and happy to provide any sorts of advice. I had my car on a full service and MOT. Job done within the agreed time. Will definitely return.
Very straightforward and honest, told me straight away what was going to happen and worked right away. Got my Left Wing mirror kicked off by a random drunk, they fixed it within 3 hours of receiving the parts, would recommend and the finishing product looks brand new. Very very helpful.
Friendly efficient garage who are keen to help. Work completed quickly no problems keen pricing and they kindly arranged for my car to be MOT'd too. Recommended.
Received a brilliant service from this garage they picked my car up from my home address took it away replaced clutch and returned it same day at a very reasonable price compared to other garages. The major highlight was that I didn't have to leave my house so so so convenient plus a job well done
Nina was exceptionally helpful. The communications were excellent, she recommended some additional work to the car, which I authorised. The additional cost was very reasonable and not a "rip off" as you would expect from garages. When the car was dropped off, Nina insisted on showing the parts that were replaced and the state of wear and tear. The workmanship was excellent, as was the price and communications. I couldn't ask for more. I can definitely recommend GML Automechanics!
I am very satisfied, they did a great job!
Nothing much to say Great Job at a reasonable price Thank you GML AutoMechanics
Very happy with the job. I will definitely go back if i need to.
The service at this garage was top class, I was very impressed with the work they did on my 4 series BMW. I needed brake discs and pads fitted. The guys working on my car we very good communicators from the moment I was quoted. This garage is very welcoming and the guys there are very knowledgeable about their craft and also very professional. I was always updated about every step being taken and given honest advice about any future work required on the car. The prices are very fair and competitive. I stayed for a little while after the car was done to just share our car interests as they were very friendly. Thank you again M and T for your amazing service.
This garage was able to do the work straightaway, at a reasonable price, and to a high standard. Thank you.

A brake, or brake pad is a system that safely enables a car to stop. Brakes get rid of the kinetic energy that helps the car move, which is done by using force of friction to convert this motion of energy into heat. Your car's braking system is made up of the following components: Brake discs, which spin with your car's wheels, Brake Pads, which push on the discs to slow the car, Brake Calipers which hold, and push, the pads, Brake Lines (or 'Hoses') which carry Brake Fluid, and your Brake Master Cylinder and Servo, which work to amplify the effort you use when pushing the brake pedal. Wear or failure of any one of these components will cause braking problems, requiring repair.
Modern cars have brakes on all four wheels which are operated by a hydraulic system and are made up of several components all of which are subject to stress which could result in breakage.
The front brakes in a car are typically the ones which play the greater part in bringing a car to stop as the weight of the car is thrown forward every time the vehicle comes to a stop.
There are different systems used for braking from one car to the next which suits the needs of the vehicle size and function.
The common hydraulic system uses fluid to apply pressure to pistons in the car close to its wheels to bring the car to a halt.
Some cars also have power brake assistance which helps to reduce the amount of effort required to apply stopping power.
If you need to have your brakes repaired there are several issues that could have caused the problem and several things that could be affected.
If you suspect you need your brakes repaired but your car is still drivable, there are some symptoms which could give you clues as to what the problem is.
The brakes are often the noisiest part of a car if there is an issue which means you should be able to hear a problem which cannot be said of many other broken car parts. Therefore, noticing the need for a car brake repair should be obvious. But you can check faulty brake symptoms here.
Brake pads are a critical component of a car and a vehicle cannot come to a halt without them functioning properly. Brake pads are fitted to the brake calipers which push the pads into the brake discs which are fitted to a car wheel. When a car is moving, the pads grip the discs to slow down the wheel and thus slow the car down.
A high amount of heat energy is created from the resulting friction as explained above and over time, this will wear brake pads down.
Brake pad replacement is a common job, the work to remove a worn-down-set is not complex so if you require a brake pad replacement, the repair will not be a lengthy one.
If you would like to understand how to tell when your brakes need servicing read our dedicated guide.
Brake discs are fitted to the car wheel itself and they are gripped by the brake pads.
Brake discs replacement is more expensive; the parts are more expensive than pads. Often pads are placed at the same time the discs are replaced.
If a mechanic advises you to replace your brake discs, they will likely suggest replacing the pads at the same time due to a the low cost of the part and the little extra labour time needed.
The cost of brake pad replacement may vary depending on the car make and model. This is because there are different sizes of brake pads and the cost increases as they get bigger. For example, a Land Rover will require a bigger set of brake pads as opposed to a Fiat Punto.
We have written a brake price comparison guide if you want to learn more.
If you want a good brake pad deal, you can compare quotes from garages near you by entering you details at the top of the page.
If you specifically require brake disc replacement, the work will take a similar amount of time to a brake pad replacement.
However, as highlighted above, the cost will be more expensive that pads due to the parts pricing.
Brake pads are changed by removing the wheel and unscrewing the bolts which hold the part in place. The part is then simply taken off the brake caliper and a new brake pad is fitted. The same process will be applied for each of the pads that need to be replaced.
There are many other common issues which can arise with the braking system which are not connected to brake pads and discs issues. The brake lines are susceptible to leakage as brake fluid can leak from the system if rust is untreated. The master cylinder is also a part of the braking system which can become faulty. If you would like to understand more we have a dedicated page for brake repairs.
