The guys from the garage are very professional, they have changed the timing chain for a few hours,they also cleaned the inside of the engine and changed the water pump in the given price. I'm very pleased with their services. Definitely recommend them.
Very quick response and fixed the issue within hours of having the car

Friendly staff who fixed my car for the price quoted. There was some confusion over time of completion and communications but otherwise happy with the job that the guys did.
Great service, cheaper than originally quoted for
EXCELLENT SERVICE FROM START TO FINISH - so pleased with the work would not hesitate on going back for any future repairs, they were really helpful even picking my car up from Aylesbury which was such a relief as i could not drive my car at all. Work was completed very quickly and and much cheaper than i expected, even tightening my hand brake without asking, i found the garage to be very honest and genuine i am very pleased, Thank you.
Michael and the team have done an excellent job. Collected the car and completed the work faster than I thought possible. Identified the problem wasn't as severe as I'd thought and amended the cost accordingly. Cannot sing praises high enough.
Superb company. Quote included recovery truck and return of car to my home. Clutch replacement makes a ten year old car feel new. Job taken care of in 24hours no fuss. Michael and his team are the best. Highly recommend them. A great find.
Mohammad is a first rate professional. He has worked on our family's vehicles many times and always delivers exceptional quality and value. He is one of those 'rare' mechanics one can actually trust. Thank you Fastlane!!!
The guys did a wonderful job, I will definitely go there again.
A bit of a late start to the service, due to their mechanic not being available on the Saturday, so this wasted some time initially (approx 1hr). However the owners were friendly and offered to drive me to the nearest retail park to kill some time and have lunch. They then collected me approx an hour later in my car as the job was completed. Overall very happy and would recommend. Good service.
Great work from great people.
Quality service, fast and affordable. High performance car was looked after very well by these chaps. Great service. Will be returning for next job!
Price was for break discs and pads and both calipers replaced. Price was slightly higher than quoted but this was communicated to me before work was done. They also fixed anow intermittent light issue free of charge though and topped up my screen wash. Very happy with the service.
Work was completed quickly and for the price quoted. The staff were very personable, professional and helpful! I will definitely be using this garage again.
Overall pretty good, although I was told I needed 4 new tyres and brakes replacing on the rear, both had been done in the last 2 years and the car does 7k miles max a year!
yes polite and prompt to collect car... did exactly what i asked and threw in a cup of coffee... will use again
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.
