  • What is the minimum depth of a tyre tread?

    In the UK the law requires car tyres to have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm in a continuous band around the central three quarters of the tyre.

  • How long do brake pads last?

    Pad life depends on driving habits, vehicle usage, and operating environment. Brake Pads are designed to provide 20,000 to 25,000 miles of life in very severe use (such as heavy-traffic urban areas) and will give 40,000 to 60,000 miles of pad life in average use. Factors that will reduce pad life include frequent heavy braking, elevated temperatures (caused by high-speed braking), driving with the vehicle heavily loaded, and severe environments such as high-corrosion areas and areas with a lot of road debris and dust.

  • One wiper blade is perished do I change both?

    Yes, we recommended that you replace both. This will ensure your windscreen is clear and provide a safer view when driving.

  • Which engine oil should I use?

    Please consult your “Owners Manual” If you do not have one you could bring it to our workshop, where we will advise you on which oil is matched to your vehicle.
