Really like the fact that I can book a convenient appointment on line. Excellent service and price. Special offers are real value. Will use again. Grantham

Been twice now for MOT. Guy on the desk is spot on, car is always ready when they say it will be. Top job. Makes a change to get good service. 100% will book my next MOT with you. Coventry

Very impressed with the service. And the pricing was very competitive. Whist I needed a few things looking at after the MOT, I didn't feel pressurised into having them done by Formula One ... which I liked. I returned here after being given a good service, when I had new tyres the week before Chester

Sep 3, 2016

very good i have been recommending the service and prices to my family and friends Cannock

AS always when visiting for MOT, service, tyres etc Ian and the team are without fault. This and great value every time, I don't even bother getting other quotes as F1 are best every time. Well done guys. Shrewsbury

Excellant service and friendly helpful staff. No problem reccomending others to use the service Martin, Chesterfield

Sep 9, 2016

Greeted by friendly and professional staff and the tyre fitter was also polite, friendly, professional and humorous!(Very important!) He asked to rearrange some work clothing in the back of the vehicle, and even left his seat cover over them to protect them under my spare. Very thoughtful. Nathan's promotion has left the branch in good hands!! Richard, Bristol (Longwell Green)

very easy process of booking, on time for the MOT, given a thorough run down of the procedure, and items that will need to be kept an eye on (tyre tread depths). Very friendly staff. Will definately use again, and with 6 cars in the household, they will be getting regular business from us. Poole

Sep 5, 2016

Great service as usual, always very happy with you guys can't beat the prices and very quick. Will definitely be back thanks. St Albans

Sep 11, 2016

I've chosen Formula 1 autocentre yet again for both my wife and own cars for their excellent professional service and prices. Thanks, Brian Hanley

Sep 10, 2016

Formula One comes up trumps every time, that's why I and my family used them for years. The online buying/paying is great idea, easy to use Stevenage (London Road)

Sep 2, 2016

Good quality products at very competitive prices professionally fitted. Farnborough

Sep 3, 2016

Excellent service. I needed a replacement tyre - the booking system on the internet was easy and I received a confirmation email straightaway. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The job was completed very efficiently and I was provided with a clear explanation of the process. The centre looks smart and there is clear information about the services provided. The location is easily accessible. This is the first time I have used Formula One and I will definitely use again. Many thanks. Rotherham

I have been using the f1 centre in Kings Lynn for the last couple of years and have always found the service and advice regarding my car very helpful. These guys always explain everything that needs doing to me in an understandable way. They are so great that I always recommend them and always take my car here. King's Lynn

Sep 5, 2016

exceptionally good service from both the tyre fitter and the receptionist..they obviously enjoy working for F1 Canterbury

Sep 6, 2016

Spoke to a member of staff to ask some questions about wheel alignment before ordering online and found them very helpful. The member of staff who took my details when booking the job in on the morning of work was also very helpful and the job was carried out exactly to specification. I have also used Formula One Bulwell previously and recommended them to friends and colleagues several times. Opening on Sundays is also very useful. Bulwell

Sep 2, 2016

Formula one is my go to garage. They are always helpful and I am always happy to go back. Doncaster

Sep 7, 2016

I've been going to Formula 1 in Peterborough for more years than I care to remember. The old adage of you get what you pay for, doesn't apply at Formula 1. You have ALWAYS been the lowest for price, but give a service that ALWAYS exceeds my expectations. I knew you were great when I came to have new discs fitted, after having been to another company for a service and being told that new discs were urgently required. Their price seemed high, so I rang round and got quotes from others, including yourselves. You were much cheaper, but more than that when it was booked in, your Manager (Mark at that time), called me and said we didn't need them for another few thousand miles. Come back later! This showed us what a great company you are to deal with and I haven't been anywhere else since and recommend you to everyone. Peterborough

Sep 5, 2016

I took my car for a Master Service last week. There was a lot of work to be done (which you always hope is not going to be the case of course!) but this work was done quickly, efficiently and within the suggested time slot. Very pleased, would recommend and will use again! Thank You. Lincoln

Sep 5, 2016

Only negative comment when fitting tyres, technician could wipe off adhesive/lubricant around wheel rim, although this was done when asked. Friendly, helpful staff. Glen, Maidstone

Sep 9, 2016

Very pleased with service, products and good value for money. Thank you Pauline, Leatherhead

Sep 9, 2016

The service was exceptional - very efficient, friendly and they went out of their way to be helpful. Stevenage (London Road)

I found the service from F1 Tyres very good and the tyre price was the best in the area Would use F1 again, I have even put their number in my phone, how's that for confidence? Chesterfield

Sep 1, 2016

My van was booked in for 9 am. tyres changed, friendly staff and ready for 9-20am. Fantastic service Oxford

Sep 10, 2016

Have used strood and Dartford branches, very helpful staff and given honest advice Dartford

Sep 11, 2016

Great staff, always helpful, polite and have car ready on time. Don't think they could be beaten on price - I'm alwasy happy with the cost. One of the most honest, decent garages I've ever used. Don't ever change!! Steven, Nottingham (Glasshouse Street)

Sep 2, 2016

The staff were polite and very thorough. They did a very good job and discussed the work carried which I found very reassuring thank you. Hertford

Excellent service, the gentleman dealing with me was cheerful, enthusiastic & charming Basingstoke

Sep 11, 2016

Helpful and cheerful staff could not do enough to help.Ordered 2 tyres and booked 2 days later, excellent service. Mansfield

Sep 11, 2016

Formula One Autocentres are my garage of choice. Every team I have used them they have delivered a quality service at a reasonable price. Every question I've ever had has been answered in a sincere and sympathetic way and every request has been fulfilled with integrity and respect. I recently had an MOT with a competitor who gave me a 24 point list of work that needed to be completed. Once this list had been reviewed at Formula one the list shrank significantly, as did the cost and they went on to show me exactly where some of the comments made on the list of works were absolute fabrications. I would choose Formula One Autocentre Chelmsford everytime and recommend them to everyone I know purely because I trust them and appreciate their honesty. Chelmsford

Very good service especially as daughter forgot to leave the keys. Branch were very understanding a rescheduled for later in the day. Car had a few minor issues which we were promptly informed of and then fixed super quick. Will be returning with our other vehicles :) Burton

Sep 8, 2016

Very pleased with the level of service provided. Prefer to use formula one rather than my local dealer as i am more confident that they will listen and act on any problems. Poole

Sep 6, 2016

Always welcomed and listened to. Dave at the front desk made things easy and simple. Thanks for a great service Bedford

Sep 2, 2016

Very good service for fitting tyres bought online at superb prices from F1 and fitted at chosen time. Excellent. Farnborough

Sep 10, 2016

Find waiting times very erratic, this visit was excellent but previous have been very slow and tedious Wisbech

Sep 1, 2016

Very friendly staff. Very clear explanations of different elements of the MOT test. An all round pleasant experience. Bulwell

Sep 10, 2016

Always use this centre for everything I need doing as the management team here seem to run a really good team staff always happy and you can have a laugh with. I'm very selective where I have an mot as many places will try to make a few pound finding work that does not need doing this does not happen here so well impressed once again with this visit colin, Stevenage (London Road)

Air conditioning

At Formula One Autocentres we offer 2 types of air conditioning services; Air Conditioning Re-Gas and Air Conditioning Clean. These services will ensure that your car's Air-Con is working efficiently, also removing any unpleasant smells.

Both services are available to buy online at very competitive prices. Plus, if your air conditioning isn't cooler after the Re-Gas, then the service is free of charge!

Air Conditioning Services
Air Conditioning Re-Gas £45.00
Air Conditioning Clean £16.20

Air Conditioning Re-Gas*

It is recommended that you should recharge your air conditioning system every 2 years with gas and lubricant, in order to keep it running efficiently. This is not included as part of a routine car service and so it can often be overlooked. If your car is more than 2 years old it is more than likely due a recharge.

Our Re-Gas service ensures that your air conditioning system is working efficiently by testing the gas pressure to see if it has dropped. A drop in gas pressure will result in a loss of cooling efficiency which will make your engine work harder and in turn use more fuel.

Our fully trained technicians will take a temperature reading from your air conditioning system; remove all the old refrigerant gas, oil and dye. They then clean the whole system and remove any moisture within. Once the system has been thoroughly cleansed our technicians will inject new oil, dye and refrigerant gas and take a temperature reading again to ensure that the Re-Gas has made a difference to the cold air temperature.

This process will ensure that your air conditioning system is working to its full potential. If, however our technicians find that the Re-Gas has had no impact on the air conditioning temperature then you will not be charged for this service.

Contact your nearest Formula One Autocentres for more information or book your next air conditioning Re-Gas online today!

*R134A Gas only



Air Conditioning Clean

The air conditioning clean service removes all the harmful bacteria that can build up within the air conditioning system. By circulating a special cleaner through all air intakes and venting systems this service removes any unpleasant smells, leaving your car smelling clean and fresh.

It is recommended that this clean is carried out once a year, however if your car has an unpleasant odour then it may worthwhile getting in touch with your local Formula One Autocentres branch who will be able to provide advice.

To book this service please contact your Formula One Autocentres local branch or buy online today!
