We all have a little heart flutter when an amber or red light pops up on our dash, right? swiftly followed up by checking our owners manual or even ‘Googling’ what the issue might be, resulting in thinking the worst. Or in some cases, ignoring it completely and hoping it may disappear.
Perhaps, instead of leaving your vehicle to the point where a dash light pops up and having to assume the worst, book in for an OBD healthcheck as part of the routine service. It is very simple and takes about 15 minutes to complete. The fee is £35 + vat which is a pretty reasonable price for peace of mind wouldn’t you agree? At Broadbridge heath Garage, we believe that prevention is better than cure.
So, OBD stands for ‘on board diagnostics’ and the majority of cars these days have the ability to ‘Plug in’. Why is this beneficial?
A diagnostics health check can be completed within minutes
It is cost-effective routine maintenance
The health check will detect any issues in the engine, braking and safety systems
Reports can be provided for your vehicle history
Regular check ups help pinpoint any unresolved component issues
A lot of the time, we are unaware our vehicle has issues

Oliver’s Coffee and Wine Bar in Copthorne, West Sussex have started to host a monthly car meet. James went along to showcase a couple of Broadbridge Heath Garage and G and J Performance cars. It was a good turn out, mostly fulled with ‘American Muscle’ and some hidden gems. Take a look at some of the photos taken by the guests, images are from Oliver’s Facebook page.
Known as the ‘Italian Baby’ The classic Fiat 500 is a desirable and much admired car. The first of its kind was released in 1949 as a post war affordable, economical vehicle. Despite only producing 13 horsepower and featuring the ‘suicide doors’ it proved to be a very popular car. The model received upgrades as the years went by but remaining consistent in its charm.
G and J Performance are delighted to have not one, but three of them! Better still, they are available for you to buy. Ranging from £8500 to £8995, these superb examples are a must see.
If you would like to take this rare opportunity to get your hands on one of these gems, contact G and J Performance by clicking the image below.
So you have your car in for a service and the garage calls you to say your car needs a brake fluid change? You may be thinking “what on earth is that and why do I need it now?”
Well, it is actually a very important aspect of motoring. Brake fluid is used to transfer force into pressure to ensure effective braking. Over time the fluid absorbs moisture, changing the boiling point and therefore no longer as effective causing ‘spongy braking’.
The brake fluid is stored in a translucent reservoir in the engine bay, often with a yellow cap like the one shown above. You can see the fluid level without having to open the cap which should only be opened when testing or changing the fluid to avoid excess moisture entering the reservoir.
The image above shows how we test the quality and moisture levels in the brake fluid. The cap is removed and we place the metal rods into the reservoir, the light indicates if action needs to be taken sooner than later. The technician will let you know if it was green, amber or red. If the light is red, we recommend you have the fluid changed as soon as possible as your braking will be affected by this.
At Broadbridge Heath Garage we are able to check your brake fluid for free.
Piazza Italia is always a fantastic event for Horsham. Last year The Tour was launched and was a huge success. This year Broadbridge Heath Garage went along to launch G and J Performace. James and Geoff showcased a Lamborghini Gallardo and an Aston Martin DB9.
After the send off in Horsham town, James was leading about 40 cars through Billingshurst driving the Lamborghini, he managed to get everyone lost by taking the wrong turning! Typical James….
The turn out was fantastic, we were happy to see many of our customers faces there! Here are a few snaps from the day… Don’t forget the main Piazza Italia Event is this Easter weekend in Horsham town. Visit the Piazza website to check out all the latest information www.horshampiazzaitalia.co.uk/
