Great service, thank yoj
I am satisfied with service, everything when smoothly and I have received extra support from Malik the owner who made sure I pass my MOT.
the yard was a bit small and untidy with a busy group of gentlemen around about valeting cars but the service was courteous speedy and reliable.. vehicle has been running for a few months with no issues. I think his stars are deserved as he seems diligent and honest
Job was done in around 30 minutes which was perfect. They attended straight to the car as soon as I arrived, no messing and no long wait.
Mike is a nice and honest guy. Did the work in 40 mins as agreed. No wait time. Took my car in on the time agreed. So far no problems. He also got the more expensive and better parts which suited my car better with no extra charge. I definitely recommend Mike.
Great service, quick and prompt. Responded to any emails immediately, when I had to change my date and managed to fit me in earlier than planned. Warranty included, I was shown the parts for my car prior to them being fitted with an explanation as to why it was slightly more expensive for the model of car I owned. Will definitely use again for any major work.
Good experience. Dropped off car, went shopping, came back for car, paid & left. Brakes great!
Excellent service,job done 20mins.
Great service, great job, very friendly price was what was quoted would recommend to anyone who needs Aircon regard. The quote was one of the cheapest but couldn't fault anything

Excellent and speedy service
Great price, easy to communicate with and included a free valet. Thumbs up
When I arrived to get a quote on suspected rear bushings fault I was a bit disappointed by the tidiness of the garage having always been to larger tidier premises. I can honestly say that within 1 minute of the two men looking at my car in the pit they put to shame the larger garages and their so-called experts. In their first glance and with an honest and straightforward answer they affirmed that the only issue with my car was cheap rear tyres and not a £450 repair cost that had been quoted by VW and Quickfit... They told me the rear subframe and suspension was sound and only needed a £17 pound bushing if I was picky... All I can say is never judge a book by its cover... This is a perfect example. I can truly say that the big dealerships could learn a lot from Malik and his team and its No1 Honesty in their appraisal and No.2 fair and good value prices.. I have seen many garages rip people off with unnecessary services and bad value work and I felt the team here have found the perfect business model... well done and keep it up... I went from a total skeptic to a total convert with your top class service in under a minute... It was brilliant work ... full service- rear bushing changed at my request - brake fluid changed and 2 new rear tires and the car is handling like a dream and delivered and collected to boot.. WOW.. I can tell a good garage and a good team and this is it!!... I will be recommending them but don't be put off by the flip flops as they would run rings around VW and Awesome gti. Keep up the good work.
Great price. Fast diagnosis. Will definitely be using for further works
Really helpful and made sure everything was sorted given we’d just bought the car and knew work needed doing
These are my go-to guys now for car repairs. Great job, low price, pick up and drop off service, valet for certain works. Can't ask for more - these guys have nailed it.
Good friendly service was told an hour for the job it was done quicker than that
My car is the sport version of Nissan Juke, the Nismo. I had my car picked up and dropped off to my house and although the local dealer did not have the exhaust for my version of the car the guys ordered and fitted the sporty version 2 days later. I cannot recommend them enough.
Quick turnaround from quote to complete. Great job. Thank you
Excellent service from start to finish, garage was quick to respond for my quote, and questions. The problem was found and confirmed within minutes of arrival. Parts ordered, and fixed within very short time frame. I asked for a service too which was also done. Great work, reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend. 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.
