About Car Clinique

The BMW Specialists based in Hillsborough
Based in Hillsborough, we are independent BMW & MINI specialists with over 15 years of industry experience, fully trained and qualified to BMW Diagnostic and IMI Master Technician level.

Isn’t it time, as a BMW or Mini customer, that you receive the level of service that you expect from the dealer? The same quality you would expect from the dealer but at a fraction of the price. Here at Car Clinique, those expectations will be fulfilled.

Trust, honesty and a quality service are our core values and we strive to deliver this every time.

All the repairs are fully explained and priced to meet your needs and work will not commence without prior authorisation. So no unexpected bills!

No job is too big or too small. We are fully equipped with dealer level diagnostics, all the latest specialist tools for servicing and repairs, so whatever your requirements may be, you can rest assured you are in good hands.

Specialist BMW Servicing And Repairs
At Car Clinique based in Hillsborough we can provide expert repairs to BMW's, Servicing, timing chain replacement and carbon clean up.

The Importance Of Servicing
Manufacturers are continuing to increase service intervals. This reduces their costs when one purchases a service pack yet in the long term is causing damage to your engine.

With the combination of long service intervals, cheap quality service parts and our damp climate, problems such as turbo failures, DPF (diesel particular filter) blockages and general poor engine performance are on the rise.

Tyres & Wheel Alignment
Our state of the art laser wheel alignment equipment will accurately align both front and rear wheels of your BMW or MINI, optimising vehicle performance and safety. Correct alignment is paramount after installation or modification of steering and suspension components to ensure tyres are not suffering premature wear.

Servicing Is Essential
More frequent servicing can help minimise the chance of engine failure. Long life service plans are set by manufacturers to reduce initial servicing costs, yet the effects are only noticed later on, generally after the warranty period.

We, here at Car Clinique are noticing more turbo and engine failures as a result. We would strongly recommend a service every 10k miles or once a year, compared to the manufacturers 20k miles or two year plans.

ECU Problems
Here at Car Clinique, we can provide an alternative to having to pay a fortune on brand new ECU’s. (Electronic Control Unit). Used parts would not be our first recommendation, yet with ECU’s we can sympathise with a customer not wishing to pay the extortionate prices for new. Considering there are no moving parts liable to fail due to wear and tear, a used alternative can in most cases be the best possible solution.

Timing Chain Failures
There are many reasons for failure, poor servicing, short journeys, excessive use of start/stop technology and quite simply, service life. Similarly to engines with timing belts, failure can be catastrophic. Yet the servicing and understanding of a timing chain is not the same for most drivers.

We have experienced timing chain issues from as low as 24k miles to as high as 160k miles. Not all examples are exactly the same, it depends a lot on the maintenance and individual use. This can be applied to both petrol and diesel vehicles.

BMW Carbon Build Up - 100% FIX
Both modern petrol and diesels engines suffer from carbon build up. This problem is accelerated by poor servicing and continuous short journey driving.

The carbon builds up in the the intake ports and valves which significantly reduces the volume of air entering the engine.

Diagnostic Services from the Car Clinique
A customer was experiencing lack of performance i.e. Limp home mode, which was accompanied with an "EML" light.The customer had already spent a significant amount of money with other BMW/Mini specialists and yet the fault was still present.

A main dealer had also an input on the diagnosis, with an estimate of £1200 yet unable to guarantee the fault would be rectified. Unable to afford to take such a "gamble" on the dealers uncertain diagnosis the customer brought the car to us here at Car Clinique through a recommendation.

Once all previous work was rechecked and after our two hour diagnosis we confirmed the fault lay within the engine ECU (electronic control unit) aka the "brain"! With the new ECU costing in excess of a £1000, we sourced a used replacement and recoded to suit the customers car at a fraction of the cost.

Car Clinique has great knowledge of MINI's, I had on going issues with my clutch and many other mechanics were unsure of the problem or how to fix it. I was so pleased to receive reliable and good quality services! Reasonable pricing also, I'll certainly be recommending and returning.

Got swirl flaps removed on my 330d with blankers put in very reasonably priced and the guy takes pride in his work as he suggested changing the gaskets on manifold at same time as it made sense and at very little cost... Great service thanks will be back
