My family and I have used Gary for years for all car issues. Just had the mid range Race Chip fitted to a 1.5TDi Focus. Whilst it doesn't hurtle off from a standing start (not expected to) the increase in BHP and particularly torque, are noticeable and delivered smoothly and positively and especially welcome when the car is fully loaded. Gary is always professional, reliable, honest and fair.

I need my little car for business and so when it's off the road things can get difficult, however since I've been using this garage, I've had no problems at all. The garage is immaculate. The staff, very professional. Having my car regularly serviced has kept it going and prevented large repair bills. Thank you.
