We at Autotech Performance understand that not all our customers have experience of working within the Motor Trade and therefore what we in the trade take for granted as “common knowledge”, the same cannot be said for the layperson.

This section is aimed to trying to provide you with some answers to those “common knowledge” aspects and dispel any of those “Myths” that maybe out there.

Myth: “My vehicle is on lease so I can only use the main dealer for servicing….”

No, Not Necessarily, Take advice from the finance company supplying the car.

Because of a European directive called block exemptions, we can service and maintain your car from New, following manufacturers guide lines and service schedules using Original equipment manufacturer parts (OEM). This will keep your vehicles warranty intact and we update the online manufacturers service database keeping your factory service up to date.

Myth: “Independent garages don’t use original parts….”

Where we cant speak for other independants, here at Autotech Performance we only use Original equipment parts. We have a strong belief in “only the best is good enough” and yet this doesn’t mean it can be the most expensive.

Myth: “My vehicle needs warranty work so I have to use the main dealer….”

Whilst your vehicle is under a manufacturers warranty it will need to go to the relative Franchised dealer (Whilst being serviced by ourselves with the European block exemption in place warranty still stands)

The used vehicle market comes with an aftermarket warrany/insurance policy, these we can deal with for you from the quotations through to the fix

Myth: “Only the main dealer can update the electronic service book….”

This is a myth, here at Autotech Performance we have access to the individual Manufacturers Global service databases where we will update and keep your service history up to date

Myth: “Independent garages don’t give warranties for their work….”

Here at Autotech Performance we guarantee both our Labour & Parts. Most Parts these days carry a 1 to 3 year warranty and batteries 3 to 5 year warranty

Absolutely the best
"Absolutely the best garage I have ever dealt with. Never experienced such honesty I can recommend Pete and his Team to deliver the goods."

- Andrew Mcclintock

Helpful, professional and friendly
"Helpful, professional and friendly service received last week from Autotech. They were recommended by a friend and I'm very glad they were. Will definitely use them for my next service."

- Melissa Kelly-Jones

absolutely brilliant
"Pete and his team are first class. I would not hesitate to recommend this garage to anyone. Service and friendliness is absolutely brilliant."

- Simon Stainer

"Wow. Car booked in for 9 and they were on it like a bonnet! Car serviced for a very reasonable price using carmakers parts. Even hung around waiting for the end result. As a woman that knows nothing about cars (other than where to put the fuel and how to drive) I didn't feel intimidated and was sold nothing more than booked in for. Not even an advisory. I'll be heading back there next time my motor needs anything. Thanks guys, much appreciated. Your coffees not bad either"

- Vicki Driver

Thanks very much
"Really happy with the service from Autotech. No hassle with booking and the price I paid was far better than that quoted by a BMW franchised dealer. Unlike the franchised dealer, the Technician remembered to update the Idrive on completion of the service. Thanks very much and I’ll see you for the next service."

- Matt Flitcroft
