You can rest assured you’re in expert hands with, Stephen, a Master Diagnostics Technician who loves nothing better than absorbing himself in fault-finding and has NEVER yet been beaten... which is one of the reasons why local garages also come to us for fault-solving! We are very proud of our skills and hard-earned reputation.
The fact is that Launch, Carmen-Scan, Snap-On, Auto-Diagnos, Auto-logic, Pico, VAG-com - all the major diagnostic equipment in the world - won’t solve a fault unless it’s in the right hands… it’s imperative to use a technician who thoroughly understands this diagnostic equipment to avoid the ‘trial & error’ methods that can be costly for you.
Manufacturers are producing increasingly technically-advanced engines. We have risen to this challenge by investing in the latest tuning and diagnostic equipment - and we are committed to ongoing training and certification. Our highly-qualified, specialist diagnostics team consistently demonstrates outstanding technical expertise and produces 1st class results fast. What we don’t do is charge the earth for it!
