Although we never experience really severe snow or slick ice in the UK its worth being ready if and when it does strike. We’ve put together some top tips for driving this winter.
Preparing your car for winter – We recommend checking the engine coolant, tyres (correct pressure and tread) and brakes
Get your air-conditioning re-gassed – Air-conditioning is just as handy in cold weather as it is in hot weather. In Winter it is used to clear/de-fog your windscreen and prevent it from misting up while driving.
Invest in Winter tyres – often overlooked is the use of high performance Summer tyres on many of today’s cars. Investing in some tyres specifically for Winter/wet driving really could make the difference
Take advantage of our FREE 45 point healthcheck – we offer a FREE 45 point healthcheck for your car which will highlight any issues that are deemed necessary to rectify now to either fix an existing fault or to prevent problems later on.

Today we had a BMW X6 in for servicing, this monster has the Xdrive35d setup with the 286bhp twin turbo diesel.
We changed the air filter, engine oil filter, engine oil and brake pads. We skimmed the brake discs too so they are just like new for half the price!
Today we had in a lovely example of a ‘bug eyed’ Subaru Impreza Wagon. It was brought in for routine servicing including oil and filter change, new brake discs and pads.
