Patrick was very friendly and took the time to explain the job and costs involved. He also advised to have the clutch kit replaced at the same time. Would defo recommend.
Amazing guy fantastic service. Will be going back for other work.
Excellent job done!
Excellent service from Patrick and the garage. He was reassuring as I dont know anything about cars. Explained what was wrong, what needed to be done and the timeframes. He personally dropped off the car in the evening. Very reasonable priced too. I cannot fault him and highly recommend him.
Great services, excellent communication, fast and prompt. Patrick was the man in charge and he did indeed an exceptional job.
Very quick service and very capable mechanic.

Prompt, friendly service. Will use again.
All the work was done quickly and within the price specified during the call. It was very nice dealing with this garage.
Great service from Ben and Kyle. The car was booked in the same day as requesting a quote and fixed by lunch time the next day. I was very happy with the service received.
Very friendly and helpful
Dealing with indy from beginning to end was professional and he was clearly experienced in the work. What I liked was that he told me in plain terms of what needed to happen, what the process would be and the cost breakdown. I was able to leave the car, and he offered me a runaround car to use in the time being if I needed it. Once the work was done, he showed me the work, the previous parts, and how the work was completed. As it happens, a couple of days after taking the car, the engine management light came on. I contacted indy and he told me to bring the car back to inspect. He was totally honest in what the issue was, one of the new parts fitted had failed! Without any hesitation he said he would order a new part, and fit it. What I appreciated was that there was a clear ownership of the issue, and providing a great service. Unlike some mechanics, who try to deflect blame, or look for more money, he was completely professional and told me he would fix it. And a few days later I had the car picked up, fixed and complete. I also asked him to replace my wiper motor at the same time, hence the change in price. I was very impressed with the indy, and the service he provided. I would definitely recommend him, and hopefully I won't have to in the near future, but if I need to take my car to a mechanic, it will be going back to him!! Excellent value and a proper mechanic who takes pride in his work. Keep it up mate.
The team were super helpful when I arrived with my car and were on hand the whole time. Inderjit was very patient, helpful and went out his way to ensure to assist me. Thank you team!
They were very accommodating and fixed the clutch straight away. Whilst completing this job Inderjit informed me of my front brakes and pads needed changing. He kept me updated and provided a reasonable quote. The team were friendly and professional whilst handling my car. They even opened the garage on a Sunday so I could collect my car. I couldn't ask for a better service and I highly recommend them.
I have not driven the car yet, after repairs, but up to this point all seem to be well. The price was competitive, to my knowledge. The car was collected with a temporary car left for my use. I was updated and the vehicle returned the next day. I was provided with photographs of "work in progress", which I feel is a great idea and a detailed invoice. I think, that in the future, it would be a good idea to put on an invoice the make of spare parts, as they vary greatly in price, between manufacturers. I will certainly send my car for repairs to this garage again and already mentioned to all other "old fogies" that the service was excellent.
Quality work. Done quickly. Brand new parts provided. Great service.
I cannot recommend them enough. They did a really nice job, the price was great, and they were easy, helpful and clear about what they were going to do. I absolutely trusted them and I was right to. Thank you very much!

Quick response. Accurate quoting. Fast turnover. Inderjit called me after I accepted the quote and lent me a car to get to work the next day. I dropped off my car at 6pm and he text to say it was finished at 9pm! Great service and I’ll look to use this garage again the next time I have any car issues.
Very good and helpful garage, explained all the work that needed doing and showed me exactly where the problem was and what needed doing.
Just had my exhaust fixed, another mechanics wanted to charge me 400's,..... I highly recommend this garage, very friendly & affordable and fast
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.
