MOT and service
MOT and service carried out, the garage contacted me to keep me up to date, which was very helpful, they carried out the work within few hours and I was very pleased with the service provided. This is the second time I have visited and have decided to contact this garage as my first option from now on as they couldn't be more helpful, polite and efficient.

Service
I was a little bit disappointed. The young men were very courteous however, I had to wait about half an hour after I was told to come in, not that I minded too much. In my opinion after the pollen filter change, there were exhaust smells in the cabin that were not there before. They said it is because I needed to change my injectors but even after repairing the injectors, there was still a smell. They did not give me all the estimates of the repairs I had asked for. I went to get my car repaired somewhere else, as it was cheaper.
Customer in Southampton, 19 November 2013  
Response from Quayside Motor Engineers Ltd:
On the 19th of November the customer bought her car in for a full service, which would take approximately 1.5- 2.0 hours. The car was serviced and complete by the deadline we contacted the customer to advise her the service was nearly done but we found injectors 1-4 leaking, this is due to carbon build-up . The customer was aware of this prior to the service. We gave a quote to clean, replace the injector washers and sonic clean the injector , also at the same time to test the fuel injectors .The quote for this work was an estimate , as we could not tell how long it would take to remove the injectors as they might be seized. The customer also wanted a quote for 4 new injectors which we thought was unnecessary and quite expensive. We emailed and communicated by email and phone. The exhaust smells were present before and after the service. I've have offered to look at the car and investigate the problem under good will however the customer has not responded to this.
