SERVICING

All makes and models are serviced in line with manufacturer requirements, using genuine manufacturer parts and service kit, meaning you get all the benefits of main dealer service works, without the main dealer costs, and without main dealer wait times.

Manufacturer approved parts are used to ensure your warranty is maintained, whilst non-genuine approved parts can be used for those cars without a warranty.

As part of your routine service, the appropriate filters will be replaced, including oil filters, pollen filters, fuel filters and air filters, as specified within manufacturer recommended timescales.

Having your car’s engine oil changed has many benefits, ranging from increased engine efficiency and better mileage to increasing engine longevity and being more eco-friendly, that is why – as part of service works – the team will drop all oil from the vehicle and replace with the correct quantities of new manufacturer recommended oils.

What’s more, all servicing work is completed in line with your manufacturer servicing schedule and requirements, to ensure optimum care for your vehicle and to maintain its performance.

MECHANICAL REPAIRS

The team undertake engine, drivetrain and other mechanical repairs on all makes and models of performance and prestige vehicles.

Drivetrains are inspected for damage and wear and tear to boots and joints, whilst the underside of your vehicle will be inspected to check the exhaust for damage and corrosion.

Brake discs and pads can also be replaced using genuine manufacturer parts, with your wheel hubs cleaned as part of brake disc replacement to ensure they are maintained to a clean level, which allows them to perform to their best.

DIAGNOSTICS

Using the latest technology, the team can read your car’s ECU fault memories and diagnose the cause of warning lights in the vehicle instrument cluster, enabling them to quote and undertake appropriate repairs.

As modern cars are controlled more by multiple electronic control units, it is essential Performance 28 has the latest diagnostic equipment to quickly reset and remove fault codes, reset control units, and reset engine management lights.

Such equipment includes a GYS Flash battery charger and support unit, which is used as a stable power source whilst diagnostics are taking place, and a Texa Axone Nemo 2 – a multi-brand diagnostic system that reads the car control unit to diagnose any faults.

ENGINE CLEANING

One of only a handful of service centres accredited to undertake the process of car engine cleaning, Performance 28’s EDT machines carry out a unique engineering process that delivers deep, full engine cleaning.

Your car is first prepared by draining the oil from the engine before a clean micron filter is added to the EDT machine, which pumps a bespoke mineral oil into the engine.

The machine will remove the buildup which contains carbon, varnish and other particles from your engine, with the container changing colour as everything is removed.

Once the engine has been drained, there is no contaminated residue, and a new filter is fitted and new oil added to your clean engine.

After the ultimate engine detox, car owners experience reduced emissions, better fuel economy and overall improved engine performance.

If you have any questions about how Performance 28 can help you look after your performance of prestige vehicle, get in touch with the team by calling 0191 389 7103 or emailing [email protected]
