Great, despite me complicating things with a wrong part I bought in advance Peter was very flexible to return and despite extra work kept the original cost, car running as good as new, thanks!
I am very pleased to write a review for this company. The mechanic,Paul could not have been more helpful. I asked for this service for my daughters car as it broke down on her and she needed to get to university. The response from elite was great and the skill level of Paul was second to none. He was faced with a problem that other machanics were unable or unwilling to fix and all others told me they would have to uplift the wee car. Paul located the problem and had her back on the road the next day. Cant thank them enough for their help. My daughter has noe arranged for Paul to come back and service her car and I am going to get him to do my car as well. I have recommended this company to my son and to my colleagues at work and will continue to recommend him to anyone I meet who needs car repairs
Would high recommend this garage, I would have had trouble getting my car to a garage and Peter from Elite came to my house to carry out the work. Peter is the most dedicated mechanic that I have ever met, and the prices he charges is without a doubt the most competitive around. I will use Elite again and will recommend to family and friends
I can honestly say, that this garage (Robert) was SO professional, courteous and prompt. I didn't actually think there were any garages left that provided this level of service. Thank you very much. My car is an old banger but Robert was still informative and realistic as to its diagnosis. Thank you very much, I wouldn't hesitate to use this garage again. AND they were by far, the cheapest quote!
I would recommend this garage to friends and family cheaps in town good work done.
They took care of the rust, sprayed some undercoating plus did a full MOT check and fixed a few other issues. My L200 now looks much happier. All of this when other garages refused to even try and fix the car. Satisfied customer.
Happy with service would use again
Excellent job and value good advice very happy with service.would recommend no problem
5*** all round. Great mechanic, came back out to do extra work on my exhaust. Very professional. Highly recommend.
Graeme kept in touch letting me know when he was coming to pick up the car, great price and repair done in a couple of hours. Very happy indeed.
Great service was provided for repairing the exhaust on my 07 fiesta, Marius picked the car up as agreed at 8am (before I had to leave for work) and was prompt and professional, the car was returned before I got home from work. Marius had also reduced the scope of the job as he found that a section of the exhaust was currently in acceptable condition, only replacing the part actually needing replacement, and adjusted the price accordingly... Not many mechanics these days do that! Much appreciated and much impressed with the level of customer service provided. I will contact Marius when any other work is required. Thanks!
Friendly and trustworthy company! Mechanic picked up my car locally made repaid and dropped back off for no extra cost. Highly recommend and will definitely use again.

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.
