A wet day brings a BMW 325i (E30) with a water leak!

Marc loves having these classics in the workshop and along with a new water pump, silicon racing hoses are also being fitted.

This one will hopefully be finished tomorrow but you can see Marc hard at work and the blue hoses starting to take s...

This BMW M5 made a dramatic entrance to the workshop today. Unfortunately it arrived on a recovery truck.

Marc ran diagnostics on the vehicle and waded through four pages of faults. Still early days on this vehicle but Marc is in close communications with the owner to agree a plan of action.

Examples of Marc's attention to detail .. He really does treat every car as if it were his own.

In the left photo, note the shiny new hub nut which are replaced whenever Marc finds a corroded one! Unfortunately, if left unchecked these nuts eventually corrode to the point that they cannot be re...

BMW 320d ABS Conductor Rings & Differential Output Seals (Part 2 of 2)

The customer had been quoted circa £1800 by a BMW main dealer for this work. This is because BMW only supply the entire driveshaft and will not repair the ABS conductor rings on them. The vehicle was repaired by Marc for less...

Used MIB for the first time, for my 320D (E90). Marc and Ian were friendly but professional. I had my brake fluid changed. They gave me a full detail on the issue with a certain electric fault, and fully repaired it. They carried out a diagnostic for my coolant issue and provided me with a competitive quote for water pump and thermostat housing replacement. I've booked with them again to carryout this work. In the meantime Marc has provided a temporary solution to keep my car running. Much appreciated!

My first visit to Marc's for my 2008 Z4 and it was a great experience from the initial phone call to book a service and request a replacement brake light reflector through to collecting the car after the work was all completed. Only the work I had requested and discussed was done and, on collection, expert advice was provided for potential areas to look out for in the future - which was very useful.Certainly no pressure - just valuable information about how to keep my car performing at its best. Marc and Ian were thorough and knowledgeable, extremely professional and friendly throughout.The work was performed to a high standard - very well priced (with all costs provided before work began) - and I shall certainly be back for future work as required.Very happy to commend this brilliant local business!

Marc is professional, friendly and approachable. Nothing is too much trouble and he will always go above and beyond to ensure the customer is happy when they leave. Marc's knowledge, skill and ability makes MIB the first choice for your car servicing, maintenance and modification. Highly recommended!
