I am satisfied with service, everything when smoothly and I have received extra support from Malik the owner who made sure I pass my MOT.
the yard was a bit small and untidy with a busy group of gentlemen around about valeting cars but the service was courteous speedy and reliable.. vehicle has been running for a few months with no issues. I think his stars are deserved as he seems diligent and honest
Job was done in around 30 minutes which was perfect. They attended straight to the car as soon as I arrived, no messing and no long wait.
Mike is a nice and honest guy. Did the work in 40 mins as agreed. No wait time. Took my car in on the time agreed. So far no problems. He also got the more expensive and better parts which suited my car better with no extra charge. I definitely recommend Mike.
Great service, quick and prompt. Responded to any emails immediately, when I had to change my date and managed to fit me in earlier than planned. Warranty included, I was shown the parts for my car prior to them being fitted with an explanation as to why it was slightly more expensive for the model of car I owned. Will definitely use again for any major work.
Good experience. Dropped off car, went shopping, came back for car, paid & left. Brakes great!
Good customer relationship. Educated me more on how best to maintain my car.

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.
