When your vehicle is in the care of our service department we will:

  • Fit only quality parts and materials (genuine Main Dealer if still under warranty)
  • Provide a fixed price quotation before carrying out any additional work.
  • All filters and parts fitted by Autotec are O.E. parts which are manufacturer endorsed and will not invalidate your warranty.
  • Allow only skilled technicians to conduct work on your vehicle.
  • We only use quality and high-grade Oil. Our oil prices reflect this, please take this into consideration when comparing our oil change prices to other workshops.
  • Look after your vehicle carefully at all times where possible protective seat covers, floor mats and coverings will be used.
  • Keep for your inspection, if required any of the used parts replaced by us before we dispose of them.
  • BMW MINI condition based servicing (CBS) – A number of MINI models now feature Condition Based Servicing, (CBS), which replaces the older Inspection style service regime. CBS works by using sensors to constantly monitor parts subjected to wear and when the service component is no longer working at full efficiency will alert the driver by activating the service symbol on the dashboard.

Autotec will assess this information in order to provide suitable recommendations and costings.

review rating 5  Excellent service and very friendly. Took my Audi A6 here to be checked over after I had the engine management light come on and the glow plug light flashing. These guys found the fault and cured it and I was back on the road within a few hours. I was kept up to date throughout with what was happening with my car and the advice I was given was 2nd to none. I couldn't recommend Autotec highly enough and I would most certainly return in future. Well done guys you put my mind at rest.
