We believe the best service is achieved when only one technician personally looks after you and your car from start to finish. From your initial booking, the same technician will diagnose a fault, contact you to discuss the work and costs involved, order parts, carry out the required work and hand your car over to you at the end of the day. We pride ourselves in providing first class quality customer service. When you book your appointment with us you can either wait in our comfortable waiting room with viewing area or leave your vehicle to collect later. Courtesy cars are also available when appointments are pre-booked.

Engine Re-Mapping
We have many cars come through our workshop looking for one reason or another to increase the performance of their car.  Remapping your car can provide a number of benefits.

 

  • Save Fuel Nowadays with the cost of fuel forever on the increase running a car can become an expensive pastime, so an opportunity to save fuel becomes ever more attractive.  By remapping your vehicle you can save up to 10% on your day to day fuel consumption. Now if that’s not encouraging I don’t know what is.
  • Improved/Safer Overtaking Performance. Whether you cover 1000 miles a year or 100,000 miles a year on the road no doubt you often find yourself in a situation where you want to overtake the car in front. Remapping can help your vehicle perform to its best ability keeping your manoeuvre swift, safe and fast ensuring you spend the least time on the wrong side of the road.
  • Smoother Running. We all like it when our car runs quietly and smoothly. Remapping can provide much smoother running when driving your car.
  • Improve Towing Performance. Towing will always take its toll on any car whether it’s towing a small trailer or a large caravan, as it requires the vehicle to work to its maximum performance. Remapping will help take away a lot of the strain from the vehicle, making driving whilst towing, easier and a much more pleasurable experience.
  • Reduced Gear Changing. Frequent gear changing is very noticeable on longer journeys. With remapping the gear changing becomes minimal and much smoother.

Without a doubt, these are just a few advantages to a vehicle when it is remapped.  If you enjoy driving or cover many miles then consider letting us remap your car to take advantage of these many benefits. We offer a 14 days no quibble refund (less installation charges where applicable). Please ask for further details. If you would like to discuss any aspect of remapping your vehicle, call in and talk to Paul for expert and impartial advice.

Air Conditioning
A vehicles air conditioning system needs regular servicing to ensure it works efficiently and effectively. A properly maintained air conditioning system not only provides comfort during the hot months but it can be used to demist a vehicles windscreen during the colder months. Systems that are not recharged regularly will become less efficient and cause the vehicles engine to use more fuel, dramatically reducing efficiency. M-Tech provides a complete air conditioning recharge service and recommends this is carried out at two yearly intervals. We can combine this with your scheduled vehicle service at your request or you can book separately.
Batteries
A modern car battery may start an engine but still be faulty especially if its more than five years old so it’s essential to have it tested. With the new AGM Absorbent Glass Mat battery, which are fitted to newer ‘start stop’ vehicles it is vital to replace them with the correct part and procedure. Call in and see us if you are unsure about your battery performance.
Tyres
It is important that your vehicles tyres are maintained at all times and the correct tyres are fitted for your safety and comfort. Good quality tyres can transform the driving quality of a car. The law states that the legal limit for minimum depth of the tread on vehicle tyres is 1.6 millimetres across the central ¾ of the tread around the complete circumference of the tyre. Unsure if your tyres are legal ? Try the 20p test. Simply place a 20p coin into the main tread grooves of your tyre. If the outer band of the 20p coin is obscured when it is inserted, then your tread is above the legal limit. If not then it is below the legal limit. We are able to provide our customers with branded new tyres at competitive prices. We are happy to check your tyres for you so, to be sure you are safe, call in and see us.
