If the flashing light on your PDC button looks familiar, you've got a fault and we can help.

The PDC controller had failed, so we sourced a new controller and f...

We were able to perform a mobile diagnostic at the customer's home to save risking the engine. Our initial diagnosis is that the timing chain on this N16 engine is likely t...

My first visit to Marc's for my 2008 Z4 and it was a great experience from the initial phone call to book a service and request a replacement brake light reflector through to collecting the car after the work was all completed. Only the work I had requested and discussed was done and, on collection, expert advice was provided for potential areas to look out for in the future - which was very useful.Certainly no pressure - just valuable information about how to keep my car performing at its best. Marc and Ian were thorough and knowledgeable, extremely professional and friendly throughout.The work was performed to a high standard - very well priced (with all costs provided before work began) - and I shall certainly be back for future work as required.Very happy to commend this brilliant local business!

Used MIB for the first time, for my 320D (E90). Marc and Ian were friendly but professional. I had my brake fluid changed. They gave me a full detail on the issue with a certain electric fault, and fully repaired it. They carried out a diagnostic for my coolant issue and provided me with a competitive quote for water pump and thermostat housing replacement. I've booked with them again to carryout this work. In the meantime Marc has provided a temporary solution to keep my car running. Much appreciated!

Fantastic service, they couldn’t do more to help and even helped to keep their costs low for me. BMW charged me £300 and couldn’t find the issue. Here It cost me £30 and I got all the answers I needed. Job done ✅

We are always delighted to meet existing and new customers, and you're always welcome to call in.  However, please note the following:
