Top garage. Came and collected my car, done the work and dropped it off. Whilst they had it, they checked the whole car over for any other issues. Whilst the gearbox was out, they suggested I had the clutch and flywheel replaced as it was worn. Would get repairs here again.
Good professional friendly service. Used before and will use again.
Fantastic service can’t fault them in anyway. Will certainly be using them again.
One of the best garages I've dealt with. Patrick was professional and courteous. I had front and rear pads/discs replaced, 2 x tyres and an oil/filter change. The price was competitive and I chose the garage based on the reviews. I am so glad I did. Will definitely be using Patrick for all future repairs and servicing

Well what a happy chappy I am! Last week when I first contacted Jay about my car being in 'limp home mode' and my belief that it was a DPF issue he told me that there was 'usually' an underlying issue which he could diagnose. Anyway today I called him and he and his co-worker Mick turned up at my place of work to conduct his investigation. As soon as the bonnet was opened, without any diagnostic equipment being connected and the fact that my 2011 Saab 9-5 is fitted with the Vauxhall A20DTH engine, he just put his hand down to the turbo intercooler output pipe and showed me his fingers covered in an oily mess and confirmed it to be a perished/split hose and informed me that he had done 4 of these hoses last week!! He left me to go and collect a hose, returned and fitted it along with putting 2 cans of DPF100 cleaning fluid directly into the DPF having removed a very sooted up Lambda sensor. He then put nitrogen into the MAF sensor, checked his diagnostic equipment that there NO trouble codes stored, and there wasn't. Via this equipment he then performed a static DPF regeneration and then that was it. Driving home was an absolute pleasure and the car performed better than ever. Absolute superb service all round. Told me exactly what he would be doing and he let me watch!! Can't recommend Jay highly enough and any DPF type issues you may have, then he's the man to call. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Diesel Particulate Filters are extremely important to have in your vehicle. The filter captures and stores exhaust soot in order to help reduce emissions coming from diesel cars.
Ever since 2009, the Euro 5 standard has been enforced, a rule which ensures all new diesel cars must have particulate filters fitted.
These pieces of equipment were introduced in an effort to reduce the particle and soot emissions from diesel engines. Diesel Particulate filters (DPF) trap soot before it blows out of an exhaust and like any filter, it requires cleaning in order to maintain performance.
Fortunately the filter itself has self-cleaning capabilities known as regeneration.
There are two types of regeneration which can be carried out on your car.
This process happens automatically while the exhaust is at a high temperature which will usually occur when you are driving down a motorway or quickly down an A-road. However, as many vehicles aren’t always being driven at high speeds, an alternative system for regeneration exists.
This method of cleaning the DFP is controlled by an engine management computer and happens automatically when the filter reaches 45% of its limit. The process is initiated by the fuel injection being increased which makes the exhaust heat up and therefore clear the filter. However, if your drive is a short one and the process tries to initiate, it will not be able to properly clear the filter, in this eventuality, the warning light in your car will come on.
A drive of about ten minutes at a speed of around 40mph should be adequate for the process to be successful.
If these issues are effecting your car it is almost certain that you will need your filter replacing which is likely to cost upwards of £1000 including diagnostic and labour time.
And if you were thinking of saving all of that time and money by removing the filter completely, think again, it’s illegal to remove the DPF.
The Department for Transport states that it is an offence to remove the filter or modify the piece of equipment in a way which would result in the vehicle failing air pollutant emission standards. Breaking the law will result in the vehicle not being road worthy so if you are ever offered to have your filter removed, make sure to keep this in mind.
Every MOT now includes a check for the DPF and a smoke test from the exhaust so there is very little chance of getting away with removing the filter.
If you need to have the filter regenerated manually, you must take your vehicle to a trained professional immediately. They will initiate a process where the exhaust is heated up to a point where regeneration happens and soot is cleared from the filter.
