Was okay, but difficult to communicate as they don't reply on time. Better try in different places if you have options.
I wasn't sure of my cars service history so thought I'd do for a major service which includes spark plugs and priced at £160. When they turned up the first thing they checked were the spark plugs and told me that the ones I had were new so I didn't need a major service, so had the full service at £110. I appreciated their honesty as they didn't have to do this. I also asked to see all the old stuff when they were finished as I was wary of the extremely competitive price and wanted to make sure all things were changed which they had no problem with. Having them come to your home is an added bonus as there's nothing worse than hanging around a garage waiting for your car.
Come done job what more could you ask for
Good and fast guys. Thanks
Could do better on the communication side. Price was good ,
Andrew changed spark plugs and coils on my jaguar 2.5 X Type inlet manifold has to come off to get to them I supplied the parts and was very pleased with the price and labour charge would recommend highly
Price was only higher as he found it needed a new dual-mass flywheel as the clutch was down to the bare metal! But no pressure from Andrew, who offered to use the old one with the new clutch. Very helpful guy and would definitely recommend to anyone.
Good service, very polite and very amenable. Happy to answer any questions and does so with a high level of knowledge. Price was £30 higher than originally quoted but this work was carried out as an extra I asked for myself.

Most helpful, polite and welcoming team at the F1 Auto Centre. Made a really professional and good quality service on Air Con. Plan to go back there for all my Servicing work now on all 3 cars.
I was met by the technician who asked all the right questions and after showing me the waiting room, explained what he was going to do. He kept me informed at every stage of the re-gas. After completion he showed me the vehicle and the excellent results with the air-con he completed. Very pleased with the job carried out and would not hesitate to go there again.
Great service. Would use again.

The cambelt is a rubber belt which controls the timing of a vehicle’s internal combustion engines. It is vital in the process of making the vehicle run smoothly as it also ensures the crankshaft and camshaft rotate in synchronisation.
A snapped cambelt is uncommon however tension issues are more widespread.
If the belt is too loose it will end up whipping around inside the engine which will cause a variety of knock on effects and if the belt is too tight it will put a strain on the bearings of the cogs it's fitted to.
A tight belt will cause a whining noise to be emitted from the engine so if you hear this sound make sure to book a repair as soon as possible. You shouldn’t wait until this happens though, as the damage caused by a faulty cambelt will end up costing you even more money in repairs.
As you will see in the FAQ section and video above, the cost of a cambelt repair can vary depending on the vehicle and garage. The biggest cost associated with this job type will be the labour itself.
This is because the parts are based deep within the engine and getting to them takes time. The components themselves won’t cost you a huge amount as they are not complex so don’t be surprised to see labour costs making up the biggest part of the bill.
Even if your cambelt doesn’t completely break its important to keep an eye on the component as per the instructions provided by your cars manufacturer, if you leave it for too long, the belt could snap and cause catastrophic engine failure.
The cambelt will need replacing at some point, usually around the 30,000 – 50,000 mile mark but make sure to consult the vehicles owner’s manual to double check as it may vary depending on the vehicle.
