Proper Garage !
"I’ve been in the automotive industry for over 40 years and have worked with many of the big brands, if I had the facilities I could do a lot of repairs and maintenance myself, so having these guys local to me means I know I can get things done at reasonable costs in a place where they do a great job , you can just tell from looking round the workshop that people trust them with their cars of all levels, collectors Porsche, 13 year old BMW, an ACCobra and a 4 year old MINI cooper. I asked my neighbours who have less than new but nevertheless nice cars where they got work done and Sloane Services was consistently mentioned as a good local place to start"
"Checked my car for FREE and advised me that my mot is due soon. I will be booking it in very shortly"
"Very professional, arrived on arranged time to pick up my car.informed me on the progress of the work and no pressure sales to do any unwanted work.Will definitely recommend for customer service and value."
Can’t do enough for you

"Onky thing missing is that they did not update the service information in the car. So even though it was serviced the onboard computer of the car has no information, this may be an issue when selling the car"
"Yes satisfied with the service"
great friendly garage
"overall a great experience as they managed to fit me in at short notice even close to the xmas period. Car is runnning perfectly although they did not re-set the run flat indicator which came on a couple of days later. great value and a nice friendly group of staff"
"All the work carried seems of very good quality until now, 1 week after. Being just before Christmas were very busy and took slightly longer than expected, but i prefer quality than speed. I would recommend anyway, my second time using this garage and i would do it again"
Power Assisted Steering, or ‘PAS' as it is also known, is a mechanism that helps you to steer your car. In most vehicles, the PAS relies on a hydraulic system to aid turning the vehicle's wheels. If you have ever driven a car with no Power Steering you will have most certainly noticed the difference between having PAS and not. Power Steering used to be a luxury in certain vehicles, but nowadays it is almost standard in every type of vehicle.
In the early days of the automotive industry, power-assisted steering was a luxury and was only available in high-end vehicles. Most new cars now have it as standard. That’s because they’ve become heavier, with wider tyres and front wheel drive, and would be extremely difficult to drive without PAS. This makes a car not only more pleasant to drive, but safer to drive too.
There are two types of hydraulic power-assisted steering: rack & pinion and the recirculating ball. Rack & pinion is the most common. The recirculating ball is far less common and only really exists in vans and trucks. Both have high-pressure hoses that connect the steering rack to the two sides of the centre seal. One hose sends hydraulic fluid from the power-steering pump to the steering mechanism, while the other directs fluid back to the pump. When turned left or right, the steering wheel’s steering mechanism allows the hydraulic fluid to pass to respective side of the steering rack, pushing the seal and rack in the necessary direction.
Electric power-assisted steering is fully electric. The wheels of the car receive direct assistance from an electric motor which is mounted on either the steering rack or steering column or directly to the steering rack. Sensors decide how much assistance to apply at any time.
When hydraulic fluid lubricates and seals the power-steering pump and hoses to prevent corrosion it can leak or gradually become less effective, making it harder to turn the steering wheel. Typically, a mechanic will check hydraulic fluid levels during an annual service.
If the electric motor fails, power-assisted steering will stop working, so the motor would need replacing. As with any electrical system, software problems can occur, necessitating an update.
An iconic brand - what can be said about BMW that hasn’t already been said? Renowned for their handling prowess and performance, BMW make it a point of pride to build beautiful cars. They even used to go by the tagline “The Ultimate Driving Machine” - no need to be humble when you’re BMW, after all.
The 3 and 5 series of BMWs are the foundation of their ranges, and widely thought to be the best cars that they make, full stop. The M5 has even held the position of best sporting saloon car in the world for the last 25 years.
On the more adventurous side of things, BMW have made some more niche outputs, such as the 5 series GT and the X6 more recently. Always on the cutting edge, BMW aren’t content to rest on their laurels. With no weak vehicles in their lineup, you know what to expect when you have a BMW in your garage.
What do you need from your garage?
