Broken Timing Chain - 15 February 2015

My 2007 BMW 730D suffered a major engine problem on my way home from a 160 mile journey. After many discussions with a number of “experts”, it looked like a new engine might be the only solution.

However, my regular garage man was able to diagnose a hole in the bottom part of the engine and it was likely that the timing chain had snapped causing major damage. The job was too extensive for my man and so I looked around for a real expert after discounting the BMW main dealer who would charge approximately £2000 to make just a certain diagnosis of the problem.

Fortunately, a friend recommended Dukes Park Automotive to me and I took the car to Antony (owner) to see what could be done.

Antony approached the issue on a phased basis, firstly to establish what the actual problem was, secondly how much it would cost to fix and thirdly how long it would take to get the job done.

The diagnosis was that the timing chain had snapped and he gave me a ‘worst case scenario’ all-in price for the work needed. As Antony worked his way through the project, he kept me advised of developments and also of any changes to the overall price. As luck would have it, although major surgery was still required, the actual number of replacement parts needed was less than we first expected and the final cost was less than the original estimate.

What I really liked about Antony (apart from his obvious expertise and experience), was his approach to the whole job. He kept me posted every step of the way and I knew where we were going and how long it would take him to do the job.

From start to finish it took about 10 days (over the Christmas/New Year period as well) and I am delighted with what he has done for me.

I have no hesitation at all in recommending Antony to anyone who has a BMW/Mini that needs any work doing on it.

Sincere thanks.

EDT decontamination/Service - 30 June 2015

I was amazed with the feel of the car after the work was done. The car has done just 20k miles, yet after the treatment, she drives like a new car.The MPG has improved by a further 19 miles as well. This treatment is a must if you have a diesel engine that has not been thoroughly cleaned before. I recommend Dukes Park Automotive/EDT decontamination without hesitation to everyone. We have had our three cars all treated..
