DPF clean

Your diesel particulate filter (DPF) is used to reduce and inhibit the release of harmful gases leaving the engine. Long-standing stationary vehicles and poor diesel quality could clog the DPF, in turn, this may affect your omission control and vehicle performance.

Devoted to Customer Satisfaction

Vehicle services: Testimonials

Highly recommend MBM! Car was fixed within a few hours and communication was great throughout. Prices were also very reasonable compared to other BMW specialists in the area. Definitely recommend MBM to anyone with a BMW.

Jeevan K

Used MBM since getting my new car last year. Have had my front and rear brakes done with no issues and done within half a day. And booked in for a major service. The technician called me up and had an honest conversation about how just an oil change was sufficient until next year. Saving me spending money on something that wasn't needed. For that reason, they will do all my maintenance on my 2 series going forward. Thanks, MBM

I have used these guys a few times now as we have 2 minis (a cooper S and a Countryman) and I have been really impressed with their work.

They were honest up front and delivered both cars on time at a cost way below what a main dealer would do.

Keep up the good work guys.
