I was in Manchester today and I nipped in to say hello. As I enter I saw a 2005 i-CTDi engine in bits all over the place. Not the first time seen one and won't be the last... it was fantastic. We had a long chat about the ill-fated diesel, which is now uneconomical to repair as the gamage to the crank and other parts makes no sense. The car is being stripped of all it salvageable and good parts and being sold individually. Check out the sale section for more info. Chris has started a thread so anyone looking for useable spaces.

Chris showed me around his unit which is small but just right for his slientele, he has all the certifications and training that a fully accredited Honda deaelership technician would get. The feather in his cap is he has an original Teradyne Diagnostic HIM and the latest HDS seoftware none of this clone stuff.


This gives him the ability to update ECU software fo all Honda's apart from the latest Civic, recode keys, radio codes, immobiliser and the rest. He has all the Honda TSB printed out and ready for reference, which again helps in quickly fixing the cars back to tip top condition. He has all service sheets and SvRS sheets booklets. This truly gives him the edge over any backstreet garage blindly repairing any Honda. He has the skill and the passion which only another Honda enthusiast can sense. It's strange to describe it but you have to be a Honda nut through and through to feel that energy. He came across very confident and you felt reassured your car is in safe hands. No only that he has a great level of attention to detail.

Additionally Chris is eavily re-investing in buying more tools and equipment to make his garage into a fully equipped unit ready to tacble any type of job. Whilst I was there he had just taken delivery of a press and is waiting a part cleaner to arrive soon.

I did however tell him he will need a waste oil burner to keep warm in the winters with the oil coming out the cars that equates to free heating and one way of keeping heating costs down. Chris will not doubt come and chip in with any club deals and special offers he may want to extend to AOC members. All of his work will be warranted using genuine Honda parts (his collection of parts isn't that big, I have a bigger collection) you have some catching up to do buddy.

People can pay cash for the services and I was plesantly surprised to see a credit card machine which makes it deal and more accessible. I do sincerely wish him the best of all luck in his business and hope AOC members give him a chance next time they want their cars services or repaired.

Chris will be inviting us for an open day when he is ready for us. Wishing you the best of luck and our support.

Had car serviced here today, full service done on the 2.2 diesel and other bits looked at and advice given. All parts priced and explained and plenty of time to price up and discuss any other problems or queries you might have on your car. Honda servicing sheet and stamp on service book. All in all saved money and had Honda specialist experienced mechanic work on the car for a lot less if your around Manchester. Give it a go.

Well guys, the prelude needed its timing belt doing and after the great service I got from Chris for my Accord I decided to go back to him and get it done. So popped over to Oldham today to see Chris at his workshop.

Thanks for opening on a Sunday dude.

I have to say as ever the service was excellent and it was and absolutely top job. Chris is a seriously talented at what he does and he showed me today that his knowledge of Hondas doesn't just stop at Accords. I was really impressed with the tools Chris uses to do the job. Well after a little while we had the prelude up and running in no time. It fired up so easy and sounded so nice.


I think Chris enjoyed the test drive too lol, well he has to make sure the belt was fitted right.

Chris was great seeing again and hope to see you again soon. Guys I recommend Chris highly, he's good at what he does and do look him up.

This morning I visited Chris who owns and runs Phoenix Close (independant Honda Specialist) at Heywood, Manchester. I took my Tourer to have the brake and clutch fluids changed. It's a 7 year old car with 50k miles and full Honda Main dealer Service History from new - From the service invoices with every single thing itemised I can see these fluids have bever been changed... of hear! I bought the car a couple of months ago and have had a seized brake caliper so it was time for some new brake fluid!

And oh boy were those brake + clutch fluids ready for changing! One of the rear brake lines was quite firty and the clutch fluid was really yukky! I even took some pictures whilst my car was up on the lift - got to be one of the tidiest garages i've ever visited!


Chris made it all look so effortless and did a fantastic job.

His place is probably less than a mile from J19 of the M62 and very easy to find. I travelled from Huddersfield and he was totally accomodating - he worked on my car as soon as I got there - it's not one of those places where uyou have to drop your car off at 8.30am and then they don't get round to working on it until the end of the day! So there's no hanging around, Chris will work on your car whilst you wait and of course you get to chat to an expert about your car whilst he works on it.

I can 100% recommend Chris, not only for his work but also for his enthusiasm to the Honda marque. I shall definitely be back there for the next major service in about 4k miles.

Good luck Chris and a big thumbs up! Cheers...

Hi folks,

I visited Chris again today proprietor of Pheonix Close Independent Honda Specialists over manchester way at J19 of the M62. Of course driving a Honda I'm not there very often but it was time for my Tourer to have it's 12,500 mile service.

As usual with Chris I booked in with him for 10am and as soon as I arrived he started work on my car. The kettle was on for a mug of tea so there was nothing else for it .... I strolled over to see the lady running the mobile catering van on the Phoenix Close Industrial Estate and partake of one of her delicious bacon buttys!


Chris did an excellend job on my car - always totally thorough and very efficient and a wealth of knowledge about anything Honda and cars in general! I took a couple of pics of my car - you can see it's almost smiling with it's new oil + filter!

Chris has finished his website now so if you haven't had a look yet check it out here: www.pchondaspecialists.co.uk

So if you're still paying main dealer prices and are within travelling distance of Manchester then it's definitely time to give Chris a call - I can saty 100% that you will not be disappointed and will have more £££ in your pocket than with those main dealers - Chris's prices are extremely sensible ....
