Clogged DPF? Compare refurbishment and cleaning prices in seconds.
Service went fine good price as well. Only thing is there is a squealing noise coming from one of the belts. Not sure if its nothing to worry about as wasn't informed. I don't blame the garage for this. Just wish I knew what was causing it
Fast friendly service with a very reasonable price. Was made feel important customer and offered tea coffee. Would use in the future 5*
Excellent service. Good communications. Will be using again.
William was as true as his word. Price quoted was price I payed and he also addressed another little issue thrown in. Not to mention the fact they collected our car and returned same day. I will definitely be using their services again.
brakes were done at the agreed price, half the price of the dealers. Friendly staff!
All good and still is ok
Car picked up and dropped off once the clutch was replaced. Nice and friendly and kept good communication while the job was carried out.
I arrived at the agreed time and 90 minutes later I drove off with new discs and pads on all four corners. Great guys and very pleasant. I will contact them again when myservice and MOT is due. Cannot praise them enough.
Brilliant very happy with service they picked up on time and got the job very quickly also got my door lock changed out while it was in getting a timing belt kit done, would recommend 5 stars :)
Transparent and honest service! Great value for money
Very friendly and fast turnaround. Will definitely be using again.
Very good service, fast and able to talk through everything wrong with the car and how this impacts the drive, would 100% recommend
Customer service is great, my car is running really well after service, would highly recommend
Great job and quickly done.
Easy check-in. Took the 40 minutes I was told it would.
Fantastic job, so good I got all my paintwork sorted rather than just the wheels
Put my car in for a service. Had it back within a couple of hours. Excellent job.
The garage advised that having 1 wheel done would not have matched the other 3 and could not understand why you would offer this as an option
Excellent service as always
Amazing and quick service. I will definitely be back!!
Service and mot Great garage customers service top of the range thanks guys
Brilliant garage, video footage of repair sent to me during work.
Got a service and MOT. Great price and didn't try to force any unnecessary work on me (unlike my last two MOTs), instead just told me what I'd need to keep an eye on for the next few months.
No bull job was done as soon as the part was delivered.......well done guys thank you very much
Quoted 65 for DPF cleaning but George took a drive and charged me only 50 for the job and advised if the problem exist, call him and visit for further inspection. Great guy. They don't charge for unnecessary things unless it's a real issue. I would highly recommend him
Overall very good. I decided to pay for an extra oil and filter change as well as it was recommended by the garage. That added to the cost but the car is running great since the work. Friendly staff and a quick turnaround.
Price as quoted and job completed in less time than expected! Super quick response time and booking in. Proffesional service and from a very knoladgable and trustworthy mechanic! Will use again without hesitation, thanks!

Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
