We carry out all the essential regular maintenance and servicing of your car, plus fault diagnosis and repair, MOT testing and spares.


For classic and cherished cars, we offer a tailored service to extend everyday use and life into graceful old age, as well as resolving the inevitable problems that develop over time.

Track & Competition

Our extensive experience in preparing and running cars for track and competition gives us the edge in specialist engine build and maintenance.

We also advise on, source and fit performance parts, and our rolling-road tuning facility is extensively employed to optimise and calibrate performance development and improvements.
