They managed to locate and fix the electrical fault and drain that had been plaguing my car for months and other garages couldn’t locate. Highly recommend!!
Good experience generally, felt fairly treated and reasonable price. The work did take a couple hours longer than expected, though this may have been due to slow delivery of a part. The garage's communication with me through the day definitely could have been better. I had to keep calling them because they didn't call me with any updates, and when I showed up at the end of the day, the car was ready even though they hadn't yet called me.
Very nice and friendly people. Job done timely and within quoted price. I will definitely recommend and use them again myself.
The service was great and got the big suspension job done quickly. There was a misunderstanding about the pricing but the total quote was competitive.
Good communication eg said they'd call at lunch time to give me an update and they did. Their service is personalised unlike the dealerships where your query is passed on from person to person and in general they haven't a clue of the status of your car.
Very professional and kept me updated during the repair
Great friendly service
found a few more faults and repaired it...excellent and efficient
Possibly the best garage I've been to. Sorted out our window issue for free during the interim service and even dropped our car back to us. Couldn't recommend their professionalism any higher.
Very courteous and professional service, delivered on time to a high standard. Many thanks to Carl and his team.
Thank you so much Carl, my car looks new again
Really happy with quality of repair & price.
Absolutely delighted, a third of the cost of other quotes and a fantastic job. My Landrover looks as good as new again. Thanks to Carl and the team. Highly recommended.
Carl was very professional, he did a fantastic job on the bodywork. He also did some additional fixes that he did not charge me for. A very honest and reliable garage. I would most definitely use Executive Motor Services again for future work
Excellent man! On time, on budget, friendly, honest. 100% reccommended.
Very professional, completed the work very quickly, and highlighted tips and views on future work needed doing to keep car in good shape. Will definitely recommend and use again thank you
Very responsive to messages, very knowledgeable, if you need to go direct to your particular car brand for a part that is only sold by them, he will go and ask for their opinion on parts he needs to do the job on hand. My previous garage said I needed the pipes and seals which would of cost me £200+ However the gentleman at Smart Auto Fix went to Ford himself, and explained what he needed to do and Ford themselves informed him that we didn't need the pipes, just seals which only cost me £60. He does his research when needed and saved me alot of money. The mobile service that they provide is convenient and a brilliant service! Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient, thank you and I will definitely be using you again! Recommended.
Good man good job
Very friendly and helpful. Very good service. Would use again.
Good value for Monday. Very professional and friendly service. Went out of their way to sort the problem ASAP.
Professional and helpful.This is not a bad garage. They patiently explain the problems to you and advice you on possible options
What can I say, friendly and professional, gave me an appointment at short notice and did the job as agreed. Happy to use again OMD again.
We had a difficult situation involving the RAC. OMD Autos were helpful from start to finish, the job was done very quickly at the original price quoted and follow up help was offered if needed. I highly recommend this garage.
Great garage, really flexible, stuck to quote, good job done, 18 months in part still working well, will defo go back
Kyle and his team of mechanics are phenomenal on assessing the problem and repair it in no time.
Guys at Eagle Motors were professional and did a good job. Whilst the price was higher than originally quoted, upon actual inspection it was clear that more work was required. This was clearly communicated and I was happy with the price for what was done.
Competent and efficient workshop, all reasonably priced and pleasant to deal with. 100% Recommended
A great garage with excellent customer service. I brought my 1990 Range Rover along with a replacement exhaust all boxed up ready to be put on, these guys did a great job and worked around me in terms of looking after the car until I could collect it. Explained everything on the phone, were very thorough - couldn't recommend them enough! Great little gem in London.

An exhaust system has the primary function of guiding fumes away from a controlled combustion section of an engine. The exhaust system on a car is carefully designed so the fumes omitted from the engine can be safely transported away from passengers in the car.
The exhaust system is made up of a several parts, all of which could cause potential issues if damaged. Though you only see the tail pipe from the outside of the car, the exhaust system is a large system.
The exhaust ensures fumes are transported from the engine all the way to the tailpipe at the back of the car. The gas flows down from the engine to the flange and onto the catalytic converter, it then travels on to the muffler and resonance chamber before going to the resonator and finally out through the tailpipe.
All of these parts have distinctive functions with piping connecting them along the bottom of the car. Each section of the system has to be completely airtight and functioning properly to ensure the gases are released into the outside environment safely.
Because there are several components of the exhaust system and because it usually stretches the full length of the car, costs can vary.
Depending on the area, part and extent of the damage, you are likely to pay different prices. Some repairs may only consist of sealing a small leak whereas others may result in replacing entire pipes or elements.
If there is a leak in the exhaust system, there is a chance that engine performance will be negatively affected. This is due to the escape of pressure at the wrong point of the system.
It is essential that an exhaust system is not damaged as leakage could pose danger to those inside the vehicle. Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides could seep into a car if the exhaust is damaged. These gases are also extremely hot and would cause serious damage if they were to meet a passenger.
The piping in an exhaust system must be heat resistant due to the high temperatures of these compounds and if the exhausts integrity is compromised, anything close to the damaged area will be exposed to potential harm.
If your DPF is also blocked or not functioning properly, soot and particulate will escape from the system and cause damage to the environment and people in the surrounding area.
If there is an oil leak, there is only a very small chance that the problem is the exhaust system. This is due to the fact that engine oil doesn’t course through the exhaust like it does for a part like the head gasket.
However, if there is an oil leak, it may get into the combustion system and the result will be blue smoke coming from the exhaust.
A warning light will come on but it will not likely be the check engine light. This is because a problem with the exhaust will be detected specifically by oxygen sensors or the sensors in the DPF if your exhaust system is fitted with one.
A common symptom for a damaged exhaust is a loud roaring noise being emitted from your vehicle. This noise would indicate that you have a problem with the silencer part of the system. A common issue with silencers is corrosion by acidic moisture which is caused by a build-up of the damaging substance.
If a part of the system has cracked or a hole has appeared, you will be able to hear a hissing noise and a chugging sound could mean there is a blockage in the system. If the exhaust is leaking, the issue needs to be addressed immediately as the fumes are dangerous.
There is also a chance that the exhaust is leaking water, in which case, there is a crack or hole somewhere in the system as a possible result of a water leak from the head gasket.
If you hear the exhaust popping or rattling beneath your car it could mean that your exhaust has become misaligned and if you can hear a loud metallic vibration it usually means that something is hitting the exhaust pipe. It could also mean a clamp, mounting or support bracket exhaust is loose.
Hangers and brackets are essential for holding the system in place so if these parts become damaged there is a significant risk that the rest of the system will suffer damage as a result.
If you are able to get underneath your car, it is always the best way to check for signs of damage.
One of the most common issues associated with exhausts is rust build up, however this can often be a minor issue as some pealing of metal is not a huge issue.
If there is a build-up of rust on any part of the system, use a tool such as a screwdriver to see how strong the area feels, if the integrity is solid then the part won’t need replacing however if the metal feels weak when some pressure is applied, its time you get the part removed and a new one installed.
Black smoke coming from your exhaust means that your engine is burning more fuel than it should. This is often caused by a problem with your fuel injectors, air filter or fuel-pressure regulator. Alternatively, the fuel line could be clogged. Burning excessive fuel will have a noticeable effect on fuel economy meaning that you will be spending much more money getting from A-B.
If your exhaust in pumping out blue smoke, oil will have leaked into the engine and been burned in the system. This happens following the valve guide seals or piston rings wearing out and allowing engine oil into the combustion chamber. Engine oil is only meant for the lubrication of parts which are in constant contact with each other.
If engine oil is leaking into the combustion system, you need to have the issue addressed with an oil changeimmediately as low engine oil levels will be incredibly detrimental to your car.
If white smoke is coming from your exhaust, your car could be low on engine coolant from the result of a cracked or warped cylinder head, a cracked engine block or a head gasket failure from overheating.
If engine coolant gets anywhere near the combustion chamber, the liquid will be vaporised and converted into a white gas which is then pushed out through the tailpipe.
If the exhaust is smoking thick black, white or blue fumes, there is also an issue with the system as the exhaust should not be blowing this colour of smoke. To find out why your exhaust is blowing smoke use our dedicated guide.
