brilliant set of lads .... sent me a video explaining what was wrong and then rang me with the jobs and price to make sure i was happy with it.
Hi there added a engine flush to service which was extra £20 happy with print out probably use for next mot overall good garage happy
Found the service from the staff to be first class.Took my vehicle in at 10.30 for an 11.00 appointment,service and MOT all done by 1.00 pm.Where I used to have it done had to take vehicle in for 9.00am and I would be phoned when ready,usually 4/5.00pm
Clean and efficient
Fantastic staff very quick and efficient aswell as polite!! Definitely would recommend to anyone.
I was really worried when I had damaged my car side panel and door that it was going to cost me thousands of pounds to repair. I went to local garages who were all quoting me roughly £3,000 to repair. I thought for sure I was going to have to claim on the insurance because all the garages were saying it needed a new panel and door. However when JJLux messaged me saying they could do it for a fraction of a price I was very pleased. They said they could do it without replacing these, the results are amazing you really could not tell that the car had ever had damage. I would highly recommend the service and they have a great portfolio of their work on Facebook which is the main reason I chose to go with them.
What a fantastic job. The service was impeccable from collecting my car to returning it. No trouble, and the finish on the car. Means I have to wash and wax the rest of it to fit in with the repair WELL DONE GUYS I WILL RECOMMEND YOU ANY TIME THANKS AGAIN BOB PAYNE RUNCORN
Very highly recommend!! Price was the same as quoted plus a very small fee for picking the car up and dropping it off. Looks as good as new and even fixed my side door when another garage tried to charge an extra £800 to replace it!! Excellent work, very very happy
This garage is amazing, after searching high and low to try and find away to repair 2 badly damaged doors on my corsa with no luck with the exception of quotes for thousands of pounds. JJ Lux sent me a quote through at more than half the price any where else had quoted though wefixanycar.. I had a look at their reviews and could see these guys Do an excellent job so was confident they could make my car look great again and they did not disappoint. Car collected and brought back 2 days later looking brand new. I cannot thank them enough for the work they have done. I will most certainly be recommeding this company to Everyone one. Weldone and thank you so much. Cheers Lee

It was an husband and wife team, excellent people. It was cold with the snow and ice down and they spent 2 hours doing my vehicle they also did my partners a few weeks earlier. Both times we had an excellent service and would highly recommend them.
It was a merc they fixed, not sure why that’s come up but anyway, the lads rang me to arrange, arrived within a couple of hours & did a brilliant job. Couldn’t be more greatful as my car was stranded at work. Thanks so much! Will defo give you a call in the future
Excellent service, arrived on time, carried out full disc and pad reppacement on my Hyundai Tucson. Wasn’t a straight forward job due to tricky parts but Jay kept at it and completed the job. Highly recommend this company to anyone who wants great service. Well done guys it’s hard to find trustworthy and reliable mechanics these days, will definitely be using again.
Great, we were desperate, had to wait about 90 minutes but the engineer came to our location, identified the problem, sourced the required parts and got us on our way....and we have a guarantee and can call him again at no charge if the battery fails! Great service....
great service, done whislt i was at work, nothing was too much, extremely helpful and reliable! Would certainly use this garage again!
I submitted my details via who can fix my car, Jay came out run a full diagnostic kit and my battery bell was dead, so a new battery was sourced and fitted there and then whilst at my home, also he checked several other potential issues whilst he was there, Jay was fast efficient, friendly and very helpful with several useful tips. Without doubt 5 star rating from me would definitely use again and would highly recommend.
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

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.
