Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the job take?

Most dials we can fit in under 2 hours and provide a whilst you wait service,however some speedos can take 2 hours to remove , 1 hour to fit the dial and another 1.5 hours to refit approx 4 hours. Some dials need bonding and we need time to allow the glue to set.

 

Do you have the part in stock?

We keep a large range in stock especially for BMWs, most dials we can get 

in for next day delivery. Some models of car will need a dial specially made

for you.Costs and time vary for this, it can be upto 2 weeks wait for a custom dial to be made for you.

 

Are you able to come to my home or place of work?

Yes, we can in some cases . Please send us your postcode so that we can calculate a  callout charge to cover fuel, time , congestion charging and any parking charges - if off street parking is not available. Bringing the car to us is the cheapest option. We need enough space to be able to open the car doors fully (sports cars with large doors needs extra space). Please be advised that some cars are more complex and we will need the speedo at our workshop to open it safely and fit the parts.

 

Have you worked on a car like mine before?

We have been doing this work for over 20 years now and have worked on many different makes and models. The most popular cars we work on are BMW, VW, Ford, Audi, Skoda , Mercedes. You will see a large collection  of cars in our speedofixer photo gallery that we have worked on , these  vary considerably including Ferrari ,VW,  Porsche Mini Lamborghini, Range Rover. See our works gallery here . Most cars are similar to each other with small variations in removal and fitting techniques, so if we have not seen a particular car the same principles of fitting and removal apply.

 

Do you provide documentation of fitting? 

The inspection sheet stating that items are compliant can be perfomred at any MOT test station. If you are having this carried out at any one of our garages then they can issue this inspection report for a fee. For example you can have all items headlights, foglights and speedo inspection recorded on one garge statement regardless of where you have the work carried out.  EG you can have us convert the speedo then take your car to any MOT test centre for the MOT and at the same time they can test and confirm the lights are suitable, if the car is LHD you will obviously need to have the lights changed first.
 
What other paperwork do i need to send?  
You will also need in most cases a COC Certificate of Conformity
which you can purchase from the vehicle manufacturer and a valid
MOT certificate if the car is over 3 years old. Confirmation that the headlights and fog light are UK compliant.
 
How much does it cost?
Prices on average are about £230 .Custom dials can cost from  £250 to make plus labour to fit making a job total around £450 these are for less common  or new model cars  where a part is not currently available. Total jobs costs for some cars can be £400-£500 e.g. for custom made dials or original dials for some new BMWs that are 3 dimensional and cannot be made aftermarket so we will source an original OEM BMW part for you . These typically  involve two appointments one to remove the part,  the second to refit the new part once its made. If we are travelling to your home or another garage then we charge a callout fee to cover fuel ,time spent travelling and also any parking fees or special zone fees. Callout fee is charged at  £2 per mile from our office N13 4BS to your post code with a minimum £30 call out fee.

 

Do i need an appointment?

We work by appointment only but also have Saturday/Sunday weekend appointments available.

 

How do you take payment?

We take payment by cash or debit/credit card ( excludes American Express) at all the service centres we work at. You will be given a full receipt for the work carried out. This is for all speedo conversion works. We take deposits via bank transfer.
