Barnside Motors was excellent throughout booking my service to up-dating me on the day. Their pick up and delivery service was a bonus. I would definitely recommend them.
Brakepads and discs along with Brake fluid - very easy to talk to and 5* service from the staff. Felt confident about getting the work done and will definitely revisit next time for any repair. They were also honest on another car fix i was thinking about saving me money!
Great Job and great garage. Very easy to deal with. I’ve even booked my second car in with them.
Job done as expected, no price change. Thank you Barnside.

Very professional service, work was carried out in good time and to a high standard.
Simon was efficient and absolutely brilliant fixing my car. He responded quickly to my request, and did the work right there and then at my office. I would not hesitate in using him again and recommending him to others.
A1 service. Very helpful staff.
Did not use garage.
No nonsense. Dropped my car for an MOT, picked it up an hour later with no issues. The lads that work there were friendly and helpful, would highly recommend.
Awesome service, really friendly and helpful, professional staff. Highly recommended.
Great service, would recommend
Formula One garage were the ONLY garage to quote me & call me with a booking. My air con was fixed & sorted all within 24 hours. Their staff were exceptionally friendly & professional. They even gave me tips & advice for future. I am recommending formula one to everyone I know. I will, without a doubt, use Formula One Garage now for servicing, MOT, tyres etc in future. Thank you F1. L.Rainer (24/7/19)
Good Value and Professional
Good work and speed as advertised
Amazing service for an even better price. Took a last minute booking and did a great job.
Really nice guy would use again
Justin is a friendly, helpful, really nice guy. Re gassed my Merc, as agreed, but then also ran a full scan for any faults, cleared old ones and left me with air con working - and took no extra money for this. Would definitely recommend and will for sure use again.
Justin was great very friendly and completed the regas to our M5 even though this was his first one on this car we got there in the end!
Excellent customer service Highly recommended
Despite having an appointment, they werent expecting me - apparently appointments are made centrally without consulting the local centre - they already had six cars being worked on, so I left my car with them. Then they checked the email with the booking so they had all the details. I got a call about 90 minutes later to say it was all done and ready to collect. Price exactly as quoted. Very happy.
Final price as per quotation. Booking car in dead easy. Service carried out on a timely basis. A v satisfied customer.
Excellent service, as ever. Quick efficient and competitively priced. I couldn't really ask for more.
As promised, would definitely recommend
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.
