What people are saying about us...

  • I have been using Formula 1 since the closure and new ownership of a nearby garage. I have found the staff very helpful, the online booking system convenient - and once, when the bonnet hinge on my car had seized up, one of the mechanics freed it without charge.

  • I always use the Cowley F1 auto centre. The staff are really friendly and helpful and always work quickly to the car back on the road asap. I wouldn't use anyone else
