Thanks again much appreciated... 10 out of 10
Fantastic service. Highly recommend and will use again. Turned up early, fixed the issue and had the correct part with him. Then checked all other breaks. Great peace of mind and fantastic price for the job.
This was my first time getting an MOT and car serviced. As you can imagine, I was nervous and unsure about many things. However, those nerves died down within the first 10 minutes of my conversation with Lukasz. He was professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I had the option of driving to his garage or him picking my car up. I chose the latter and within 2 hours the MOT and service was complete. Moreover, Lukasz highlighted potential issues with the car to look out for in the future. Overall, I'd highly recommend his garage And if I have any future issues with my car, I will use his service again. 5/5
Great professional and very honest. I will definitely recommend Lukasz.
The mechanic was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable
Fantastic customer service, especially from Marcus and Lisa, who were extremely helpful! Everyone was really kind and made me feel welcoming. Thanks a lot for everything, all is well!
The entire experience could not have been better

Roy is a really great guy, he collected my car fixed my brakes and headlamps and even came to pick me up because it was raining! Amazing service and got me back on the road quickly. Totally reccomended.
Roy was excellent. Very competitive and reasonably priced. Went out of his way to pick the car up and completed the work within 24 hours. Customer service was excellent and even showed me all the parts he replaced. Thanks and will be back in the future.
Fantastic service they called me straight away
All the service has been done and the car is safe to drive with slight problem with turbo over boosting which he told me to going to fix it. Good Mechanic with experience. Thanks
Friendly garage, great service. Would definitely go back!
We had a very very good experience with this garage. Gary is an affable person, welcoming, efficient, fast. We received a very good price and they carried out the full service in some two hours. Very competitive rates compared to other garages.
Can't recommend this garage highly enough manager was a top bloke really helpful and got my air con blowing cold again also the good thing about it is it's right next to portobello road so while works is carried out you can have a look about instead of just sitting about waiting .
Car was picked up on time from my house and was dropped off at my work in time for me to drive home, paid exactly what the quote was and they even went the extra mile and replaced a bulb that had blown and also checked tyre pressures and fluid levels without any extra charges. Will definitely be using this garage again!!! Thank u !!
Fantastic garage. Very close to me and based in Notting Hill, this little garage was a right find. They opened on a Saturday just to do this job, the place was immaculate. Gary said that the car would take an hour for the service and it took exactly that, while it was being done I had a wander around Portobello and then sat in the waiting room using the wifi provided. He even did a free diagnostic check on my car. When I asked about other things I wanted do e on the car he had relevant model specific pictures on his laptop and talked me through the choices and costs. Very impressed, nice guy, lots to do while you're waiting, very knowledgable and fast service - already booked another job in with him.
They couldn't guarantee the welding would hold on the broken exhaust so phones me and gave me options which was great they had it ordered and in on the same day. Great prices and very friendly and very helpful will be taking my car back there for any other faults that need repairs in the future. Also got sent videos of the replacement and what they did job well done very happy thank you

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.
