Patrick was personable and open. He replaced the clutch on my car almost immediately, did a good job, stuck to the quote (which was very reasonble), picked up my car and returned it in a day. Would certainly recommend.
What a stroke of luck, thinking I had an issue with my car led to finding a great mechanic like Patrick. Picked up vehicle, did MOT and fully serviced the vehicle and dropped it back same day. Didn't charge for trying to find fault, or suggest works that weren't necessary. In life you need a good doctor, builder and mechanic - this is one of the 3. Highly recommended, thank you.
Very pleased. Very nice person to deal with.
Would recommend this garage to anyone..Patrick and his staff are a breath of fresh air. First class service and honest as the day is long.
Had a new clutch fittee. Great service, price and communication. Would use again and recommend.
Lovely and kind person, highly recommend him, his personality is great. Was very nice to meet him, everything was very clear and professional.
Hi there, I gave my car BMW 2011, 320 D to Anees for annual servicing, MOT, Front right side light change and Fan belt replacement. He took less time to establish the issues in my car and advise correctly what needs to be done and I found him very professional in his advice. Also, he delivered on time as per his estimated time of delivery. I recommend Anees for good services of BMW in Hounslow. And last but not the least, he is not jack the ripper. Thanks Anees, keep up the good works. Cheers, Prasun
Excellent service and a very fair price
Great garage, definitely going back
Perfect example of a high-quality neighbourhood garage. Efficient, friendly, value for money service delivered as promised. I'll definitely return to Anees for future work.
Lovely guy, very helpful and seemed to know what he was doing - would recommend :)
Lee and his colleague were a pleasure to deal with and I would not hesitate to recommend them
Excellent and professional job done by Lee. I would highly recommend Assist Autos and engage their services again.
Great price, fabulous service, troubleshooted additional problems. I highly recommend and will use this mechanic again for future work. Thank you Lee
My Toyota Verso, had gearbox problem, I contacted WhoCanFix MyCar.com, Next thing I was given contact for Eagle Auto, I contacted Eagle Auto and was attended to by Mr Roberto, what a gentleman who organised for my car to be picked up and taken to workshop, my car was fixed expertly and was told to collect, this was a relief, I cannot recommend a better garage, and these guys are hinest and very friendly, I recoomend Eagle Autos very highly; YOU HAVE TRIED THE REST------------------NOW TRY THE BEST. THANK YOU ROBERTO & GANG.
I would 100% recommend this Garage. Very professional with their approach and provided me with alternatives . I had a puncture on my tyre and although they couldn’t fix it (no fault of theirs ) they advised me with steps to take and replaced my valves. Highly recommended
When your in desperate need of a really good professional mechanic with excellent customer service Eagle Autos are your guys, my clutch went on my Mini Cooper 07 !!!!! lost as to who would be able to fix my car, went on to who can fix my car and with in 5min I had my first quote from Eagle Autos to have my clutch replaced for £581 spoke to Roberto who's customer service was exceptional car was booked in for the following day with no fuss. My car remained in their garage for one day only with no extra costs car drives like a dream now thanks to Eagle Autos, I have a few more jobs to be done on my car I definitely will be going back, you guys rock thanks again !!!!!
Very helpful and polite service, everything was good
I will never go anywhere else. Roberto was amazing and so lovely. This was my very first time having to get my car fixed/looked at by myself. He took the time to explain things I didn't understand. And although I was sure I had to pay lots to get my brakes replaced, it turned out it was only a problem with my brake sensor and I wasn't charged extra to fix it. Roberto is honest and goes the extra mile (even checking out something else I was worried about and assuring me he couldn't find a problem there). I have already recommended Eagle Autos to 2 other people. Definitely go there. Thank you for being so nice and looking after my car.
It was suppose to be £525 and i ended up paying £700 for it,not happy at all.
Dual mass fly had to be replaced too(that resulted the price almost doubled. Car has run few tousend miles since. No problem at all.
Excellent service and I definitely will be using the garage again. Thank you
Happy with Mr Shahil. Good Job. Will go back to him for any future requirements and also have recommended to friends
Absolutely outstanding service, collected my car in the morning and was done by the evening. 100% recommend these guys and I’ll certainly be using again.
Great service, lovely people and resonable price.
Correct garage, good technicians
Ended up being a wishbone causing problem so had most suspension parts changed that side aswell to save it needing again in the near future! was all done nicely
Great customer service and good value for money. Initially I planned to buy the parts myself as I found a really good offer but the garage matched that offer so the only thing I had to do was to show up on the day. I would definitely use again.
The bottom line is that these guys know what they're doing and charge reasonably for their services. The customer waiting area is very basic and the whole appearance of the garage is a bit rough round the edges but once you meet them they are straight forward, friendly and get the job done. They fixed a heating problem on my Audi a4 other garages would not touch as they feared the complexity of the job and opening up a can of worms! Not Galaxy auto, they got it sorted!

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.
