Do I have to get my car serviced from the main Dealer Or Will my manufacturer's warranty be invalidated if I don't have my car serviced by my dealer?

No - Since Block Exemption legislation was introduced in 2003 any established VAT registered garage will be able to carry out servicing using Original Equipment (OE) equivalent parts, which ensures your warranty is protected.

We are confident that our (OE) menu services and procedures not even meet, but will exceed manufacturer standards, however in a very small number of cases a manufacturer's service may be required to protect your warranty. Please consult with us when booking the manufacturer's service so you can get advice accordingly.

  • We use only the best Oils and Lubricants – Premium Fully Synthetic Helix Shell Oil.  
  • OE - Original Equipment Filters & Parts used.
  • Service prices start:
    • Interim Service from £95
    • Full Service from £165
  • Complimentary Exterior and Interior Valet included with any service.


Actual offer: 

10% OFF for Full Service. Quote, reference ACCDISCOUNT for your discount (Has to be mentioned at the time of booking). These offers are not to be used in conjunction with any other offers.
