Servicing FAQ

  • What brands do you work on?

    We limit our specialties to 5 brands; BMW, Mini, Audi, Skoda, Volkswagen & Volkswagen Commercial. This is because German cars require a lot of specialist tools and knowledge, so we like to focus our resources on being experts of just these car brands.

  • Do you work on Electric Vehicles (EV's)?

    Yes! We have the tools and equipment to service petrol, diesel and electric powered versions of BMW, Mini, Audi, VW & Skoda.

  • What filters and oils do you use for your servicing?

    We use high quality tried and tested aftermarket filters in all of our servicing options. For oil we use Castrol oil, which will use a grade specific to your brand and model.

  • What happens if my car requires extra work or parts?

    During an inspecting of your car the mechanic may notice that there are problems or worn out parts which effect the safety or reliability of your car. In this case we will contact you immediately following the service with an explanation of the problems and an estimation of the cost to repair. If you authorise us to carry out the work, then we get it done as quickly as we can. Most the time we will have parts in stock to complete the work, and we try to get your car back to you the same day. We will never complete any additional work without getting your authorisation first.

  • What service option should I get?

    That depends on your budget. If you can afford it, always go for the Euro 3 service option. This is because it is a much more comprehensive check of the vital safety and reliability functions of your car. For example, Euro 1 does not check your spark plugs, which could be a simple reason for your car to be running very poorly and increasing fuel consumption. If you had a Euro 3 service in this instance worn out spark plugs would be discovered and could replaced to get your car running smooth again.

  • Why should I service my car here rather than a regular garage?

    There are a number of key reasons why you should service your car at a specialist garage such as SD European. Some of these points include: Specialist mechanics know the quirks and details of the specific brand/model very well, this means they are able to perform the mechanical work more efficiently and at a higher quality of work. Specialists have the correct tools and technical equipment to perform the job - there are a lot of specialist tools which regular garages don't have which means they have to do it the long way, hire in tools or outsource part of the job. Specialists have your cars special filters and correct oil requirements on hand and ready to go which means they can have a quick turnaround. Specialists also have a lot of experience with common problems on that particular car make/model so they are much quicker at diagnosing a fault of problem.

  • What BMW Models do you service?

    We service Electric BMW's, Petrol and Diesel BMW's from 1 series through to Z series. Popular models we work on regularly include 118i, 120i, 125i, 316i, 318i, 320i, 320d, 325i, 330i, 330d, 330i, M3, 518i, 520i, 523i, 525i, 530i, 530d, 545i, 550i, M5, 630i, 720i, 725i, 730i, 745i, X1, X5, X3, Z3, I3,
