Fair price very pleased with the result warm and cold air thanks alot David Griffin
The customer service was great, however I paid for a partial service as my oil had been done a week before, but was still charged £135 and after leaving th garage I did see I had an oil leak that could have been easily fixed but was not, I would have thought this would be part of the service. However I could be wrong.
Great service, looked at the car almost straight away and found the problem, got the part and fixed - no hassle, easy and straight forward. Dread to think what a main dealer would have made of such a simple issue, but Barnside did what they needed to and what was convenient. Highly recommend.
Very professional & helpful garage where the customer comes first.
Amazing service with friendly people. Will be using again
No nonsense. Dropped my car for an MOT, picked it up an hour later with no issues. The lads that work there were friendly and helpful, would highly recommend.

Fantastic service. Identified the problem quickly. Pick up and drop off, can't recommend Justin highly enough!
Car picked up exactly as stated. Job done, plus another repair for which he charged for parts only as he was already under the car. Car now drives much better. Justin wouldn't even accept a couple of quid extra for a beer on returning the car. Excellent service, excellent repair and highly recommended.
Great, no fuss, done quickly - highly recommend
Friendly, fast service and price as advertised.
Fantastic, great price!
Very efficient service - arrived at 8.40am and battery was fitted before 9.00. I have used Broadway at Beaconsfield on two prior occasions and their service had been equally good and would recommend them without hesitation. F. O'Connor
The garage was quick to respond and got me in as soon as he could. He even offered to give me a lift to work when I dropped the vehicle off. Would definitely recommend and would use again.

Called me regarding the quote, friendly and very efficient. Collected the car from my work and done a great job on the discs and brake pads. **HIGHLY RECOMMENDED**
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.

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.
