    Well I got my car back late December making a racket took it back to them they said it not the engine making noise but an independent garage who diagnosed it was the engine making noise. I have reported them to trading standards just need more people to do so .to build a case history I also informed thames valley police. If you car has any problems I would recommend you it to slough trading standards.

    Yes I know but the way that reply was put seemed to suggest all was going to be well which made me think someone connected with the company.
