Our SLK 350 could not be in safer hands when it is with Paul, the owner of Phoenix Car Works. It is not often you come into contact with someone who loves and understands your car better tnan you do, but Paul knows his Mercedes cars inside out and it is clear he has a passion for them.
Furthermore, the service is very professional, efficient and competitively priced. I can highly recommend Paul and Phoenix Car Works.

Paul did a splendid job on our old 500SL. He is meticulous and thorough in his work. And, he is very pleasant to deal with.

Delighted with the work Paul carried out on my Alfa Romeo recently. He diagnosed the problem ordered the parts and fitted successfully, quickly and efficiently. Both fan and boot now working perfectly.

John P

New throttle Body fitted to Golf 2LT GT and all working well, Paul makes a point of checking everything in full before returning the car, excellence service.
Previously my E220 Coupe needed the gearbox oil changed as a precaution and once again the work carried out seemed perfect, the car had a full inspection with pictures for my records.

Paul is an intelligent & meticulous chap which is showcased in his ability as a top class mechanic who is incredibly diligent with his work and courteous with his customers. I’ve used Paul a few times now for my Mercedes and am confident to also use him for my BMW. Highly recommended.

Andrew J

The owner of Phoenix Car Works is experienced Engineer Paul Blake. For several years he has carried out routine servicing and more complex work on my families classic Porsche, Mercedes and Alvis motor cars. He will repair components when possible rather than replace, and his attention to detail is commendable. He will find innovative solutions to complex problems which has proven to be very cost effective. He always provides detailed written records of work with clear expectations and outcomes. Paul always welcomes you to visit and inspect ongoing projects and provides good value for money.

Brian G

Always very polite and professional whilst possesssig fantastic engineering skills. Highly recommended.

Christopher B

Paul at Phoenix Car Works was very helpful diagnosing some noises in my Mini. Also helping us select our next car, a Mercedes. I’ve already recommended Phoenix car works to a friend, and will definitely be using them again in the future.

Stuart P

This was the first time I had used Phoenix Car Works having obtained their details from a fellow Mercedes Benz owner locally. Paul couldn’t have been more accommodating and fixed an electrical problem I had with my E220 on the spot and was both engaging, knowledgable and passionate about Mercedes Benz cars and I will certainly use his services in the future.

Wayne H

Good and quick work carried out on my vehicle. Brakes back up to 100%.
