Regular servicing & maintenance are key to keeping your vehicle in the best possible condition.


There are two service options - a minor service which is usually every 10,000 miles or 12 months (whichever comes first) and typically consists of an oil and filter change.


A major service which is usually every 20,000 miles or 24 months (whichever comes first) and this is typically a 'big service' which includes an oil and filter change as well as replacement of the air filter, pollen filter and spark plugs/fuel filter (depending on vehicle fuel type).

We carry out a free health check with every service, checking your car over visibly and topping up all levels.

We have the option to upgrade your engine oil to a Millers Oils Performance oil. There are two different performance oils from Millers. What oil you need depends on what you need from your car, so let's talk about it! 

Millers EE Performance Oil

EE Performance is a high performance engine oil range which is ideal for on-road, fast road and track use. The EE range is specifically designed for vehicles that demand maximum engine performance. This engine oil uses the nanodrive technology. EE Performance offers an improved formulation with significant reductions in friction and wear compared to industry standard formulations. 

This oil is a longlife oil, perfect for sticking to your OEM intervals for replacing your oil every 10,000 miles or 12 months. 

Millers EE Performance Oil is an additional £2.59 per litre.

Millers Motorsport Nanodrive NT+ Oil

Millers NT+ is a competition fully synthetic engine oil, a range of engine oil which incorporate low friction technology to achieve award winning results. This oil is recommended for competition engines - suitable for naturally aspirated and turbo charged engines. This oil is ideal for all race types, including endurance, time attack, sprints, hill climb, circuit racing and rallying. Suitable for operating temperatures of 125 degrees to peak temperatures of 150 degrees.   

This oil is perfect for track and fast road performance vehicles but this is NOT a longlife oil. This oil will need changed on a regular basis. 

Millers NT+ Oil is an additional £4.85 per litre.

Needing work done on your hybrid or electric vehicle? 


Our mechanic, Jordan has completed his IMI Level 3 Electric & Hybrid Vehicle System Repair and Replacement (Institute Of Motor Industry) and will soon be completing his IMI Level 4 – meaning he has the knowledge to correctly and safely carry out work on a high voltage vehicle (which can be extremely dangerous). Both Alana & Jordan will be carrying on with further training which allows us to adapt to the future as we’re only seeing more and more EV or hybrid vehicles on the roads!


At J&A Automotive, we can carry out maintenance, repairs and diagnostic work on your electric/hybrid vehicle. Hybrid and electric vehicles need maintenance and repairs, just the same as any combustion engine vehicle. For example, this includes replacing brake discs and pads, windscreen wipers, tyres, suspension components and the diagnosis of any faults which may arise. 


If you have any questions or if you’re needing some work completed on your hybrid or electric vehicle, please contact us. 



If your VAG Group vehicle has 4WD or FWD as is the case with the MQB Seat Leon Cupra, Golf GTI Performance Pack or Clubsport, it is more than likely your vehicle has a Haldex system.  


The Haldex system uses an in-pump strainer to catch debris and contaminants within the oil and due to this we recommend having your Haldex serviced every 10,000 miles to avoid the strainer becoming clogged up. If not serviced, the Haldex pump can become blocked and this will eventually lead to pump failure which is a costly repair.  

There are different generations of Haldex, some of which use a filter. The filter can become blocked and burn out the pump if not serviced regularly. If you think your vehicle has a Haldex, contact us and we will be able to help you out.

The price of a haldex service depends on the generation of haldex which is fitted to your vehicle.

VAQ Front Haldex - £130 (inc VAT)

MQB Haldex Service Gen 5 - £150 (inc VAT)



It's important to keep your DSG gearbox serviced regularly, otherwise driving the car with old and contaminated oil will affect the performance and could also lead to costly gearbox repairs due to other parts getting damaged.

We offer this service using Millers DSG oil, which offers a more wallet friendly service without compromising on quality. (Genuine oil can be used on request). 

DSG Servicing (using Millers DSG oil & genuine VW filter and seal if applicable):

DQ250 (6 Speed) - £225

DQ381 & DQ500 (7 Speed) - £250

*These prices are only for the DQ250, 381 and 500 gearboxes. Prices differ depending on gearbox type and price includes gearbox adaptions. If you're unsure what gearbox your vehicle has or if you need a price for a different brand of vehicle, please contact us.*


Incorrect wheel alignment can result in irregular tyre wear, affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.

Wheel alignment problems can be caused by hitting a kerb, driving over a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension bushes and components. It is important to get your wheel alignment checked regularly, especially on performance vehicles to ensure you get the most out of your tyres and the best handling characteristics.

We carry out a pre alignment check where we inspect all suspension components and tyres are in good condition. This is included in the price of £120.
