Take a look at whats going on in our Workshop…
The guys have another busy day in The Kilburn Garage today, aren’t they lucky that I look after them
☎️ 01332882727 for any vehicle issues!
One of the jobs we have in today is this smart looking Porsche Boxster that has come in with a worrying noise coming from the engine area. After further investigation the guys found that the water pump bearings are severely worn
While they crack on with that, I’ve decided to drop all MOTs to £20 throughout August!
Have a great Friday all!
💡 If your vehicle fails it’s MOT on no defined beam pattern or reduced light output fear not! A head light restoration can cost from as little as £10 per light here at The Kilburn Garage. Most garages will try and sell you a new head light unit which can sometimes only be bought from the main dealer costing a small fortune. A lot of the time this can be avoided with a little hard work and elbow grease! How clear is the difference below! Our customer is back on the road feeling chuffed to say the least!💡
While we were meant to be giving a treat to Sophie, she also bought us one, well two! Thanks for the chocolates Sophie have a great day!
Keep a look out on our page for more competitions coming soon!
This beast of a Maserati GT was brought in to us from another local garage as they didn’t want to take the beast on! Carrying out complete engine and gear box swap, the 4.7 litre V8 had severe engine wear causing it to knock and lose power 💨
With the Maserati engine and gear box out, it was time to swap all auxiliaries and wiring loom onto the replacement engine which the customer had supplied. This was not job completed, as once the replacement engine was fitted and ran up, it was soon obvious there was an issue as the oil and water were mixing. After further investigation it was found that the heat exchanger gasket had failed. To get to this involved stripping the top of the replacement engine to replace the gasket. The engine is now up and running and the beast is back on the road…
VW Caddy’s through the ages in today. These good looking examples were in for a variety of work, from full suspension and brake upgrades to welding and interior swap. Old or new, big or small we have it covered ✔️👍🏼
From one local business to another –
This morning instead of nipping to Barry Fitch Butchers in Little Eaton for a breakfast cob we collected his immaculate 1998 Porsche Boxster for its annual MOT. With the love this vehicle has clearly been shown and just under 14000 miles on since new, no wonder it passed with flying colours!
Don’t forget we offer free collection and delivery where possible for all your motoring needs!

Did you know we can update your brand new online service history?
You are not obliged (since October 2003) to get your car serviced by a franchise dealer during the warranty period. You must though get it serviced according to the manufacturer’s recommended schedule and criteria using only manufacturer approved parts (OE). You must also keep records so you can demonstrate to the manufacturer that servicing was undertaken to their requirements.
Here at The kilburn Garage we use manufacturer approved parts (OE) on every vehicle that comes through our doors. Alongside using Autodata for instant online access to technical data for service, maintenance, diagnostic and repair, we can do exactly what the manufacturers do without the hefty price tag.
Today we carried out a full service on a Range Rover Evoque costing the customer £149 less than what he paid last year at the main dealer. We did exactly as the manufacturer required and also updated our customers online service history record.
Don’t be pushed into maintaining/servicing your new vehicles with the main dealer! Give us call on 01332 882727 to give you a quote and save yourself some money!
We haven’t run a competition for a little while so here it is!
Do you fancy winning a FULL SERVICE on your vehicle worth up to a massive £280
All you need to do is head on over to our Facebook page and guess how many chocolate eggs we have inside our jar. The closest answer wins!!

Can you quickly change my bulb please?
Not all cars have easy access to change bulbs, some are a complete pain to get to much like this Honda Civic this morning
If you notice you have a bulb out don’t worry, we keep most standard bulbs in stock and are able to fit them for you while you wait
Appointments aren’t always necessary but please be advised some bulb changes do take longer than others⏱

One of our customers brought his Porsche 911 in for MOT and service yesterday. Within an hour we had rung him with the good news that his MOT had passed and we were going to start his service. His beloved Porsche was then returned to his home address by the end of the day all ready for another 12 months of motoring!
Today’s customer had a blow out on the motorway while he was out of derby and needed another tyre fitting so he could get home. He took his car to a near by garage where they fitted a new tyre but shockingly failed to notice this broken spring!!!
The customer brought his car back to his local garage for us to check out an odd noise to the front of the car. Straight away we spotted the issue! The broken spring had been rubbing against the inside wall of the brand new tyre, which may have caused the initial blow out. The customer will now need yet another new tyre and a new coil spring to get his car back on the road
Please be aware of where you take your car for repair…it’s frightening that some people call themselves professionals!

This afternoon Jim and Andy are stripping an old engine out of this VW Golf and replacing it with a reconditioned one as requested by our customer
I’ve always thought engine swops must be fairly easy, old one out, new one in, simple! Clearly not… Point taken guys, I’ll just go back to my desk!
If you have any engine swop/conversion related enquiries please give the guys a call on Derby 882727 ☎️
Today has been an eye opener to a new customer of ours. After being towed into us by the AA for a knocking noise to the front of the vehicle, we discovered that both front wheels had been left loose after a MAIN DEALER garage replaced discs and pads not to long ago.
If your car isn’t driving as it should or you hear a noise that your not sure of please get your car checked.
