Absolutely delighted with the first class service I received today. James and the team took my car in for an MOT which I urgently needed doing and it was back with me within a couple of hours.

Managed to fit me in straight away
They did a brilliant job price was excellent would recommend to anyone
Very pleased that could fit me in at short notice
Visited the garage which was really easy to find, the staff were very friendly and welcoming to everyone who came through the door. They got the car booked in within a few hours of my call and the job was done same day. The appointment was a bit longer than anticipated but they did apologise and give full explanation of the reason for the delay, which was out of their control. Got the car back and it drives like a dream. I'm very happy with the repair/work and I have already started recommending the garage to others. The car is running perfectly well.
Friendly helpful staff. Work done in a very timely manner.
Interim service Audi A3 Good service will use the garage again Thanks
Good and helpful service from the staff.
Excellent customer service, Very reasonable prices. Highly recommended!
brilliant service, dropped my car off and had it back with new front breaks within a few short hours. finally fixing the horrible squeak the car had! excellent service, feels like a new car
Excellent - Did exactly what they said and was ready before the time they advised which was great. I had a slight issue with something popping up on the car which I think had been there for a while and they allowed me to pop back the next day to get a quick diagnostic done as part of the package they offered. Somewhere else quoted me £60 for the same thing... I would highly recommend you use this garage.
Great garage, friendly, fast and good prices. Will have no problem going back in future.
Minor service plus replacement of 2 tyres and break pad - all for £245. Recommend!
Fab efficient service, thank you
By far the cheapest quote on the site, and closest to my home. When I took the car in it also needed new discs as I suspected, but the garage sorted it for me quickly. Would definitely recommend.
Great staff really helpful went out of way will be using again
Very accomodating and helpful. Definately recommend for anyone.
Malmar motors gave me the best quote for my job, but that isn't why I chose them for the job. I phoned several quotes and after speaking to Lee at Malmar I was impressed by his professional manner and obvious knowledge. The job was booked in and completed very quickly, without fuss or sales talk. I'm well satisfied and would recommend. I will be using Malmar motors again.
Good service. Helpful staff. Was kept in touch throughout. Ended up costing more than quoted because needed a new part but was fully explained and now working well. Would definitely use again.

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.
