I've had 2 bad experiences in this place, both at NCT time. I'm a car enthusiast but the monkeys in this place seem to think anyone driving an older car can't afford a newer one and act accordingly. In 2007 I got my father to drop off my 13 y.o. car and when I called to collect it the new exhaust they put on was banging off the rear axle. When I queried it they told me "Ah sure, older car you know ... there was rust on the exhaust bracket and it bent down when we took off the old one". After practically going deaf from the constant bang - bang of the exhaust thumping off the axle (even on ticking over) I had it investigated. Indeed the bracket was bent: they did it on purpose. There was very little rust. Having had everything corrected on the car the exhaust would not fit. They welly - kicked the wrong exhaust on, basically. They also helped themselves to the nice chrome exhaust sleeve on the tailpipe of the old back-box ("Ah, that'd be gone out in the scrap" ... yeah right) Speaking of the tailpipe, they had a separate part 'fitted' with a clip, which prompted the NCT tester to take me aside after the test with the words "I've never seen an exhaust like that, Sir".

A few weeks ago (Sept. '15) I was in need of a section of exhaust. I went straight to them from the NCT test centre. I was told it'd be no problem, they could get the part and fit it for €90, but it would take 10 days to get. No problem I said. I let it go for about 20 days as I had plenty of other things to do, and I figured they'd call me if there was a problem. Well, professionals might have ...

I rang them only to be told that they got no exhaust. This was after much to - and fro between different people ("We get so many people in here" I was told ... funny, it was deserted for the entire duration of my visit that day and seems practically customer - free every time I pass) I was eventually told a likely - sounding story about "We changed suppliers and the new lot don't have your exhaust". At this point I am days away from the NCT retest, and the only thing I haven't got is the exhaust part ... which is all it failed on.

My recommendation is, don't trust these people or their ilk. Order your exhaust from the main dealer: it might be dearer (or not) but at least it will fit. Get a competent mechanic to fit it. Clearly Advance pitstop didn't want to be bothered, but lacked the ability to say "No" coupled with an inability to use a telephone. Rubbish attitudes.

Got my two front tyres replaced by these guys. I think the price was reasonable - they give you the choice of expensive, not expensive or somewhere in-between. Nothing much else to say except that it would be nice if they had somewhere for you to hang out while you wait - it's on the side of a big road and there's nothing really to do except use your phone to pass the time. Other than that, a reliable place.
