As usual Nat and the team were excellent. Even Cathy who does accounts made me a cup of tea and chatted away to me. Nat got my car in for mot quicker than expected as 6 other jobs were in front of me which I appreciated. Please support this local, independent garage as you won't regret it.
Excellent service, had cambelt and water pump done.
Great service. Price as quoted and problem was dealt with very well.
Great customer service, prompt service, generally no complaints about the experience.
I booked my car in for an MOT, full service, timing belt replacement and water pump replacement. Great service, and friendly staff. All in all cost £460, great value for money and I will definitely use them again. Thanks!
Prompt, approachable, professional, and good value.
My choice of Niche Motors for a full service was based on their good reviews on this site. Having had a bad experience in the past - being charged for work that wasn't done, so I'm very suspicious now, and expressed my concerns to Dan when he recommended a new fuel filter and replacement anti-roll bar, doubling the originally quoted bill. I was able to see the removed, damaged part, and newly replaced part, and trusted Dan that all the filters had been changed, although I couldn't check for myself as I would liked to have done. I'm fussy, untrusting, and suspicious but I trust Dan and his team to have been true to his/their word, and would probably be a return customer.
excellent customer service job done quickly and efficiently

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.
