Servicing FAQ

  • How do I book in?

    Booking in is quick and simple - either ring us up, or book online through out Online Booking page. Both options only take a minute to complete.

  • Do I need to book?

    In most cases we require that you book before coming in. If you have a light on the dash, or require a quick diagnostic scan however, you can just come in and ask us to have a quick look without a booking.

  • What service option should I get?

    That depends on your budget. If you can afford it, always go for the Euro Comprehensive service option. This is because it is a much more comprehensive check of the vital safety and reliability functions of your car.

  • What brands do you work on?

    We limit our specialties to 6 brands; BMW, Mini, Audi, Skoda, Volkswagen & Mercedes Benz. 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.

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

    We use high quality tried and tested genuine or 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.

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

    There are a number of key reasons why you should service your car at a specialist garage such as SD European.

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.

  • Can I wait on site while my cars being worked on?
