Thank god we found you guys.... After four other so called specialists we stumbled upon you as our last option. Turned out to be the best service, workmanship and price my car is better than it was new!! Huge thanks to the team 👍 👍 - massive recommendation from us!

Take your vehicle elsewhere and you'll regret it! These guys fixed the problem with my 22 year old Terrano when others were clueless. They know what they're doing. Nowhere else for me. They even told me what battery to get because I was sold the wrong one (by a specialist). Well done guys!

Great place for servicing and aftermarket tuning. I was looking for a great place to take my patrol for ages and everyone I spoke to had great reviews about this place. I will take my patrol back there!

I just want to say a massive thank you to Marty for getting my car up and running and all the work he did with the new 11mm pump, it is a completely different car to drive I couldn’t be any happier. It’s now so smooth and responsive compared to what it was, I will definitely be coming back in the future! Thank you once again!
