What do our customers say?

My 2013 VW MK7 Golf GTi PP was showing the sign of the classic water pump/thermostat housing failure. My local VW dealership was quoting over £1000.00 with other local independent garages not far behind. A Google search of a reputable VW specialists in the Haywards Heath area found me VDS Performance and with the accompanying great reviews, I thought it worth giving them a call. After speaking with James and obtaining a quote that was very competitive, I booked in the car and what an exemplary service I received! James is an expert in his field and I will certainly be revisiting when my car requires any other work.

What can I say? I would not trust anybody other than James to service my Audi TT.

Shaun Audi TT

James at VDS has been looking after my car since the day I bought it. His work is always of high standard and is always happy to give advice on items that will need to be repaired or replaced to extend the life of my car.

In addition to this, he has always contacted me to advice me of any work and the associated costs to gain my approval before going ahead with the work. I can honestly say that James will continue to look after my current car and any future cars I own in the future. I would also highly recommend James and VDS to anyone regardless the make and model of the car they own!

Kris VW Golf GTI

James was recommended to me 4 years ago and I wouldn’t use anyone else now to look after my cars. He is hugely experienced, thorough, efficient and takes great care to explain everything.  There are no short cuts with James and I trust him totally to always do an excellent job at a competitive price.

Thank you and very happy with your very helpful arranging to pick up car, return and the excellent work done to fix the gear box issue.  Very much appreciated the help.

Mr Ball Volkswagen Polo 1.4 TDi

In early 2019 James collected my car and carried out brake repairs recommended by Main Dealer.  Late 2019 James again collected my car and returned it later that day serviced and MoT.  Early 2020 battery started to fail and went to James for easy replacement.

Always has time to chat through potential problems and find competitively priced solutions. Would certainly recommend.

James is very good at his job, , we have used him for years and always found him to be very helpful and accommodating, he charges a fair price for the work he does and we look forward to continuing using his services in the future, hopefully for a very long time !!!!


I have used James at VDS since he started out on his own, he is very professional and very polite. His experience in fault finding is superb as I have had many jobs done on my VW Transporter over the years and also my Audi A4.
James is so thorough in his diagnosis and on repairs and servicing , we are so happy to have found him and will use him time and time again.
Also having him collect vehicles from home is priceless ..
