Here we feature a 59′ plate Audi A5 Coupe with just over 100,000 miles on the clock. The timing chain stretched and jumped 6 teeth! This unfortunately took out the valves and caused damage to the cylinder head.
We stripped the engine, revealing the damage, we replaced the valves and machined the head as new and replaced the timing chain with a new one.
In the pictures you can see us re-gassing the air conditioning as we had to strip the front of the car down (hence no front bumper) to gain access to the engine.
Here is a lovely example of a 2004 Porsche Cayenne. Our customer loves to keep his Porsche in ‘tip-top’ condition. New pads and discs this time around were a ‘must’.
This week we had in a fantastic example of one of our favourite Evos the Evo 6!
Our customer wanted the ‘Perfect Touch’ once again while servicing his car.

So here we have a rare little beast, a classic Mini with a not so classic Yamaha R1 motorbike engine fitted, imagine 13,000rpm!
We were asked to take a look at running problems and electrical issues. We found a number of major issues in the wiring and decided it would be better to start again rather than to patch something up for an issue to potentially arise later down the line.
Claudio has the wiring loom laid out….all over the workshop…its in order (in his mind at least) it looks very complicated!
In the garage this week we had a BMW X5 in need of a major service and replacement of some badly worn bushes. We recommended the Powerflex bushes for their longer lasting and better ‘feeling’ through the wheel!
Do you think your pride and joy is in need of a bit of TLC then why not bring it down to Perfect Touch in Hoddesdon, we would be happy to take a look and talk you through the necessary work required to get your car back to ‘tip-top’ condition.

Here we had a lovely example of a WRX STI (eagleye) come in with boost problems.
We diagnosed the fault as a leaking intake manifold and quickly set about getting new gaskets and re-assembling the intake manifold.
