I used the on line tyre service and it was excellent. The tyre arrived before the due date and I was able to get the tyre fitted early than my original appointment time. The manager was most helpful and I shall return to the Rugby branch when I need further tyres. Very efficient and very effective service. Paul , Rugby

Excellent service - I watched the fitter from the waiting lounge and he took exceptional care of my vehicle and tyres - little things like placing the wheels on the floor with care and ensuring the drivers door didn't get scratched.

Apr 6, 2014

This is the first time I have used the order online service. I found it extremely useful to have all the tyre specs listed as I could take my time about choosing which tyres I wanted.

Thanks for a brilliant service and MOT, so happy our car went through with no problems. Top class :) Andrew , Milton Keynes

Apr 16, 2014

Torque wrench instead of air gun to tighten nuts is a very good thing :) The fitter wanted to use the car's own jack instead of their trolley jack to lessen the risk of damage due to no obvious safe jacking locations for a trolley jack - this was being cautious and more effort for the fitter but very reassurring to me, the customer :) Gordon , Blackheath

Apr 14, 2014

I have been using Formula one for many years now and would not consider going anywhere else, staff are friendly and in my opinion they do not do any work that is not needed, when you are a female with no real knowledge this is really important to feel they are not taking advantage, they are brilliant.

I would like to commend the team although I only dealt with the manager and Chris who were behind the counter I am sure they rest are great as well, those that popped into the waiting area were friendly. It is nice to see the passion and care to the customer although not always appreciated by all as I saw this weekend. Would you let the team at Gloucester know as I think they should have their efforts noticed. Thank you A , Gloucester

The manager was fantastic and agreed to get my car sorted and for me to pick up the following day. I was very pleased with the level of customer service and would recommend the Lye centre to anyone. Please feel free to pass my comments on to the manager and congratulate him on his excellent customer service. I will definitely be using again and will be booking my car in for service in the new future. Mark , Lye
