FAQs - Faq 1

Yes, all cars are parked in our 'off the road' carpark, and every car that stays overnight is locked inside our 'back to base' alarm equipped workshop.

Yes, of BMW & BMW MINI, in fact we only service BMW and MINI vehicles – this is our sole focus. It really is impossible for a workshop to service all makes and models properly. Even a workshop advertising “European Car Specialist” is very unlikely to have all the ongoing equipment and training needed to properly achieve this.

Nothing is more expensive than poorly done work! You will always be able to find some-one to do a job cheaper. However, cheap is rarely good value. We offer great value specialist service and repairs.

All our work is covered by a 24 month warranty.

Rob & Noel (who between them have over 60 years’ experience) are always available to speak to you about your car.

We are members of BIMRS and have travelled to the USA every year for the last 20 years for training, equipment & information to keep up to date on BMW & MINIs. We also participate in local professional training as available.

All BMWs since 1986, and all MINIs since 2001 can run on E10. It is our recommendation that 95 RON (unleaded 95) petrol or higher is used to achieve the efficiency your car was designed for.
The brake system fitted to your BMW/MINI is designed for maximum performance and quiet operation in cold and hot conditions. This is achieved by using a combination of soft brake pads and discs (rotors). The soft brake pads generate the brake dust which ends up on your wheels.
The best option we have found, that delivers similar braking and low noise, are ceramic based brake pads. These should be fitted as a complete set (front and rear) to maintain correct braking balance. Ask us about this option.
Recent and current BMWs and MINIs have their service history recorded on the hard drive in the cars, and on BMWs computer in Germany. We are able to record all services we do for you on this system.
