Very happy with the clutch replacement, and at an excellent price. Anees retained the old parts to show me, and was happy to accommodate my drop-off and collection times. He is a bit far away from me, but I can easily see myself returning, despite the distance.
Good using this service but the garage changes the quoted price so I didn't use them

Is being a long time since I visit this garage, but I do not remember having any concerns after I left the garage. They were very busy, and I believe this make you feel that is a good garage. I have not use it again because I found another garage closer to me, so with one visit only I am not sure if I can recommend it.
Transparent and Excellent service, Highly recommended.
Excellent service car running like its brand new can't fault a thing
Fast and affordable
Very good service
Great customer service from pickup till delivery. They have kept me informed all the time.
The car was collected on Sunday, and ready by Monday, and delivered back in the evening. First class communication for every stage of the repair.
Excellent and friendly customer service with great communication! Rav (the owner) phoned me quickly after I submitted my job. I was reluctant to accept initially since Southall is not a convenient location for me but was told that they would collect and return my car from my house - so 10/10 for convenience. Rav and the other team members I spoke with appeared very knowledgeable and experienced in the kind of repair that I required - an air suspension issue on my used BMW X5. I was given a broad range of likely culprits and costs over the phone. They managed to identify and fix the problem quickly (a leaking suspension air bag). They also sourced a genuine BMW replacement part significantly cheaper than generic equivalents that I had seen on the internet - at £210. The labour charge for fitting it was also very reasonable at £50. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending these guys. Top work!
Very good customer service. Gave me loads of information about what needs to be done and was done in the end.
good communication, good fellas. nice local garage. have booked in to get a bit more work done with them. would recommenced for the calendar alone.
Booked in as planned, communication was good and works finished on time. Can’t say more than that. Thanks
I'm lucky to have found this garage through whocanfixmycar. It wasn't the cheapest offer (range was 70-140) but most realistic and reliable. Everything went as agreed and job was completed while I was there in less than an hour. Trust is quite critical in choosing your mechanic and this is the most trustable garage I've been to date. Hopefully it will remain that way as my intention is to be one of their lifelong customers!
An honest garage! They we so nice to deal with - I thought the track rod end / cv joint / something expensive might need to be changed. They checked it throughly and got back to me that everything was actually fine, no replacements / work required! Top of my list for garages now :)
quick, efficient service
Really quick to respond to my questions and patient with how many I had. I am very new to the area and was nervous about using a different garage (last one has been one my family used for years). Can safely say I have found my new garage! Car was fixed promptly, all the costs were explained - they even seemed worried I would be upset with the cost when in fact I was surprised at how cheap it was! - work was great, my car sounds and feels great again. Thank you so much!
Top guys, job done same day as I contacted them, on budget, great job, will definately use then again.
Needed a new exhuast on my MG. Got a quick diagnosis and a good price quoted. I had very limited time to get it done and they were very good and kept to the time limit they were very professional, and their was constant communication about what was going on. All in all im very pleased with the job done the price and the service. I would go there again and will recomend to family and friends

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.
