William was as true as his word. Price quoted was price I payed and he also addressed another little issue thrown in. Not to mention the fact they collected our car and returned same day. I will definitely be using their services again.
very good service
This is a great garage. Ur car is picked up fixed and returned 2 ur door no problems. The staff r great the service is too thanks guys job well done. Robert
Great friendly service. Waited in the garage for the car to be done and felt totally at ease. It needed a couple of extra things which were clearly explained to me and I was offered it if wanted these done there and then. Great garage and probably the first one I have felt comfortable taking my car to as a female. I will definitely be back
Team responded quickly to my car which wouldn't start (electric style fault) to get it collected and back to the garage for inspection. Even collected keys from my work. Fantastic!
Easy, fast, efficient and friendly service. Was given a complementary headlight!! Very pleased and will def use it again!
Brilliant service! Would recommended! Will now be my regular mechanic
Good friendly service
Brilliant place will be using again.
The price was above the quote because of replacement of faulty sensor.Excellent service and honest.Would highly recommend.
The job was completed efficiently and within the estimated time. Will use again without a doubt as I have recently started working in Bury and a near to local garage that gets the job done is essential. Would recommend Piston & Rotor.
Very helpful. Try to give me the best price what possible. Very happy with that garage! Will use it again!
Very helpful, quick turnaround
Absolutely brilliant! Very professional, polite, great communication and even noticed some other repairs that need attention, same day service, picked car up at 07:20 and had the car ready for pickup at 5pm I will be going back, highly recommend!!
The team were fantastic, communicated clearly what additional work may be required in order to make my car run at its optimal level then quoted me a very reasonable amended price to rectify those things. Slight delay due to part availability was handled well and the car brought to me the following day to avoid inconvenience. Well done guys thoroughly impressed by your work and service provided.
Decent garage, picked up and and dropped off car. Undercover for engine now seems to be hanging off but should be an easy fix for me to sort myself if I find a high enough kerb to get one of the sides of the car up on. Guys were good and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Superb level of Service
Happy with job done
Garage done a good job, however, I had to phone them to see if my car was ready and once there to collect they didn’t really speak to me. The gentleman just asked for payment and I had to ask if there were any problems. Would use again.
Amazing! Great price, quality work and incredible customer service. I phoned Patrick up on Monday evening, the car was picked up from Cambridge! (About 30 miles away) the following morning at 7:30! The work on the car was completed with no fuss and dropped back off that Wednesday. No bull, never tried to raise the price or delay the work. I have already recommended this place to people, and will definitely come back if I need anymore work.
Quick and straightforward service, excellent communication.
A quick reply from Patrick followed by an explanation for what he believes would be required instilled immediate confidence in someone knowing what they were talking about. I am a novice in car repairs so after speaking to Patrick (who is so polite and does not talk down to you either) offering an explanation and picking up my car the same day i spoke to him, he promised to do all he could to get the car returned to me the same day (Saturday) as well which he did. So from around 10.00am collection and the car being returned around 3.30pm i really would call this service. I could get on with the rest of my day while Automotive Components Specialist Ltd took care of my car. The car drives great again and not only did they sort my clutch they sorted out a slight gearbox leak fixing the sales and replacing oil at the same time, all within the price i was quoted. One very happy customer here and i could not recommend this company any more. I would 100% use again and recommend to anyone who wants a garage that inspires confidence and trust. Oh and my car drives great again without noises or concerns. Thanks Patrick and Team
I spoke to Patrick who gave me confidence to use his garage. Look at his reviews on his website which was very good on jobs completed as to my car. Patrick said it would take 3 days to complete and get my car back. Very professional and great customer service from Patrick. Always kept me informed and very happy to get my car back and on what was quoted. Thank you.
The problem was solved with quick turnaround, very professional.
Great job done, nice, friendly and able to work with me and my schedule which is always busy. Kept me updated
Very good contact, fast and friendly service. This was my second visit to this garage and not the last one.
Service was perfect, got my car picked up and I knew I had a lot of work to get done. It was done with no fuss and delivered back the next day. Highly recommend.
As usual Nat and the team were excellent. Even Cathy who does accounts made me a cup of tea and chatted away to me. Nat got my car in for mot quicker than expected as 6 other jobs were in front of me which I appreciated. Please support this local, independent garage as you won't regret it.

Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about MOT services in . However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
An MOT is a service provided by garages which every car is legally required to have carried out.
A cars roadworthiness will be checked during the MOT as each major component is inspected by a trained professional. A garage has to have authorisation from the DVSA to carry out an MOT as they have to meet the minimum requirement to carry out the inspection.
You don’t need to take your car for an MOT for three years if you buy and register it brand new, however as soon as the three years are up, it is a legal requirement that you take your car for an MOT annually.
Below we have included some useful information on what is checked during your MOT as well as things you can do to increase your chances of passing at the first attempt.
The exhaust system is made up of several parts and components which all need to be checked individually. The main issue that mechanics will be looking out for is leakage of fumes or liquid, as these are the most common issues associated with the exhaust system.
There is very little you can do to help your car pass an MOT if there is a problem with this system as a hole cannot be blocked up unless you are a trained professional.
The fuel system will also get checked for leaks however, by checking that the tank cap is sealed properly, you may be able to avoid failing your MOT for a minor issue.
The emissions of a car must fall below specific legal limits which means that if your car produces too much carbon monoxide or hydrocarbons, it will fail its MOT.
You can increase your chances of passing an MOT by addressing the problem before having the service carried out as it is easy to diagnose a problem with your fuel emission levels.
If your exhaust emits excessive blue or black smoke when the engine is switched on and while driving, there is a high chance that there is an issue. By addressing it early you can avoid failing the MOT test.
One in ten cars fail their MOT due to tyre issues. The mechanic will be checking the tread of the tyre when carrying out the MOT as well as looking for damage such as lumps, bulges or tears.
A tyre tread should be at least 1.6mm and be the correct type as they need to be able to maintain the speed and weight of the car while its being driven.
You can use a tread depth gauge to check if your tyres are safe to drive on and whether they will pass the MOT, if the tread is less than 1.6mm, your car will fail.
It is also important to ensure your tyres are fully inflated and the pressure is correct as this is another issue which will likely result in failure.
The parts being checked will consist of windscreen wipers, windscreen, wing mirrors, rear view mirror and windows. It will be obvious that you will fail your MOT if your view of the road around you is impeded.
This could be caused by broken or missing mirrors as well as cracked or heavily chipped windows.
Your rear view mirrors and wing mirrors must be able to move while remaining secure to provide a driver with an adequate view of the road. The wipers and washers are also included in checks as they must be able to clean the windows effectively.
You will fail your MOT if there is damage or an obstruction in your windows bigger than 10mm within the immediate viewing area and 40mm anywhere else.
You can improve your chances of passing your MOT by making sure you buy new wiper blades at least once a year and thouroughly checking all of your windows.
You should also ensure your screen wash reservoir is fully topped up as it will be checked during the MOT.
A wide ranging inspection will be carried out with the body, engine mountings, seats, doors and chassis. They are required to be completely free of erosion and cannot have any sharp edges which could cause injury.
You must also have your registration plates attached to your car which need to be visible from 20 meters away.
Your car should also be shown to display a vehicle identification number (VIN) which should be etched onto the body or chassis.
The speedometer must also be fully secure and able to light up.
Every seatbelt in the vehicle must be fully functional as this will be checked rigorously by the inspector.
Almost a third of all MOT failures are due to light, electrical or reflector failure. The front, rear, brake, fog, indicator, registration plate and reflectors must adhere to the following standards;
If one of the bulbs in your car breaks you can buy a replacement relatively easily which is something you should do if you are due an MOT.
Make sure to consult your owners handbook before buying a bulb to discover the correct unit.
The horn on your car must also be full working order and be able to deliver a strong uniform note which can be heard by another driver on the road.
The battery in your car will also be checked for leakage and stability within the engine.
Wiring will be inspected for wear and tear and cannot be at the point of breaking.
If you have a towbar for a trailer, the socket will be checked as it must be able to send power to the indicators on the trailer itself.
The mechanic carrying out the MOT will be inspecting the condition of the steering wheels by pushing the steering system in numerous directions as well as assessing the system for damage on specific components.
If your car has a locking devise, this will also be checked when the vehicle is stationary and the engine is not running.
If you have power steering, there must be a correct amount of fluid in the reservoir.
The suspension on your car will be checked visually as the springs and shock absorbers will be inspected for corrosion, distortion or fracture.
We have an in-depth page dedicated to steering and suspension which you can access by clicking here.
The overall condition of your brakes and all of the components that make up the system will be inspected thoroughly.
A specific break test will be performed to ensure your car has the correct stopping power to be on the road.
