Comments Off on Stop Start / Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) Car Batteries
The stop/start system was developed to help reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, and contribute to a safer environment.
A stop/start system shuts off your vehicle while stationary and can be restarted once the driver puts pressure on the accelerator or clutch. By shutting the engine off after about 1.5 seconds and prolonging this until it is safe to drive off, this technology is designed to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 5-10%. This is one of the ways how vehicle manufactures reduce the (g/km) grams per kilometre using the stop/start to reduce a petrol or diesel engine burns fuel, carbon dioxide (CO2) produced
However, vehicles with start-stop technology place a greater demand on a vehicle’s battery – and this is where the AGM battery stands head and shoulders above the more conventional acid flooded lead battery.
I have had a run of these AGM batteries particularly on the BMW and Mini range, where [...]

Comments Off on Timing Belts Replaced When Required – With OE Spec, VW & Gates -in Stock Ready For New Arrivals
Why does my cambelt need to be changed? The cam belt timing belt kit is one of the hardest working parts in your engine, driving major parts of the engine and keeping everything synchronised. Changing it prevents snaps, cracks and tears which in turn minimise the risk of major engine damage.
What happens if it’s not changed? The belt can go slack, making it snap or jump. This can cause severe damage to the engine. Your car will break down and could be very expensive to repair. We strip down the relevant parts of the engine and renew the cam belt and cam belt tensioner. Then we reassemble the engine and road test your car on all vehicles supplied where the cam belt kit is due.
How often does it need to be changed? 4 – 10 Years subject to vehicle details – This may need to be changed sooner for [...]
Comments Off on RARE Audi MK1 3.2 Manual Transmission – Full Audi History – Same One Owner From New
Until the TT came along in 1998, Audi was perceived as one of the world’s most conservative car makers. Then this Bauhaus-inspired machine arrived and suddenly the Ingolstadt brand was hot property. There really was nothing else like the TT, and aside from the Peugeot RCZ, there still isn’t. But the TT isn’t just a pretty (or at least distinctive) face; it’s a pretty good drive too, and this rare 6 speed manual transmission V6 250 BHP is fast and sounds superb.
With its standard four-wheel drive these MK1 TT’S still looks sharp, there’s not much that competes with the TT within the price range and the correct model MK1 TT will only increase in value if cared for.
I have sourced this Rare 6 speed manual one owner from new vehicle with full Audi service history having covered a genuine 87,000 miles in phantom black which will be available to purchase soon.

Comments Off on Audi TT MK1 Investing in Modern Appreciating Classic Cars
Now 20 Years from launch the MK1 Audi TT is becoming a Modern Classic, we have seen the price of low mileage unmolested example’s commanding high prices all across the country, especially the lightweight, sport and 225 BHP models.
We have had the pleasure of owning and driving several MK1 Audi TT’s from the 150 BHP to the 3.2 manual, mention to add which is very rare for V6 example. The prices in the last 12 Months of a perfect MK1 with good heritage and provenance has increased as collector’s are becoming aware of future values. Just think if you purchased a nice example MK1 Golf GTI, or a Lotus elise or even a Ford Fiesta XR2 5 Years ago, you would have most certainly had a better return than cash in the bank!! We currently have a MK1 TT 225 BHP Roadster which is in collectors first class condition with genuine lower miles with [...]

AN HONEST CAR DEALERWe were very anxious about purchasing a second hand car after a previous bad experience from a... second hand car dealer, this was also for my son's first car, so we were extra anxious customers. Stephen was great! He left us to view the car on our own with NO pressures to buy, he allowed us as much time as we need to inspect the car, answered all our questions, and was more than happy to allow us anxious worry worts to bring our own mechanic friend to look the car over and any other checks we wanted to make. The car was found to be just as Stephen had advertised it.
His communication is prompt.
I WILL recommend Stephen to all my family and friends and I WILL buy from him again in the future.
Thank you Stephen for time and patience. We love the car!read more

Stephen was incredibly friendly and helpful.

I asked the owner of cheap motoring to try and find my wife a Q3 s line. I had done my research and knew what we wanted... and the budget we had. I did not have a colour preference so was open to many. What Stephen found for us was spot on. A lovely Q3 s-line in black with a respectable mileage. When we received the vehicle we were so pleased and can’t thank him enough. I’m not one to write reviews but since buying the Q3 about a year ago we have since used cheap motoring again, this time for myself. My A6 has done over 240000miles and so wanted to upgrade to either an A6 or A4 estate, again with our budget in mind and preferences Stephen found me my A4 s-line estate. Thank you for all your help and I would recommend you and your company to anyone else knowing what they want. The personal touch was well received.read more
