We are now offering Lotus Evora Servicing and Repairs


See Service Lotus for an idea of prices, We are sure we can offer very competitive servicing costs and all our prices include the cost of changing the brake fluid and it is not an additional expense as you will find with many dealers, please feel free to give us a ring to discuss your requirements


Porsche IMS Failure


For information on Porsche 996 & Boxster Intermediate bearing failure and preventative please see Porsche IMS Failure please feel free to give us a ring to discuss your requirements


Porsche Cayenne Prop Shaft Repair

We can now offer a repair for the reasonably common problem of the centre support bearing failure on the Cayenne prop shaft. When the bearing fails it causes a loud knocking noise from the centre of the vehicle roughly below the centre arm rest between the two front seats. Previously you have only been able to buy a complete new shaft from Porsche at a cost of over £600 plus VAT. In our experience there is little wrong with the rest of the shaft, just a failed bearing, we can offer an exchange shaft (providing yours in serviceable condition) or we can remove and repair yours or if this fault has occurred somewhere else and your vehicle is off the road, you can brings your along to us and we will strip and repair it while you wait

Porsche Cayenne Servicing and Repairs


See Service Porsche for an idea of prices, We can offer big savings on the running costs of these vehicles, for example we can supply and fit front brake pads for as little as £227.40, that's all parts including warning sensors and VAT. Which is less than Porsche  will charge you just for the brake pads.


Car Sales


We very rarely get involved with the sale of used cars, but if you are looking for something in particular or even a new cars it is always worth giving us a ring.


If you are looking for a pre-owned Lotus or even perhaps a Porsche, we recommend  Scott Walker Cars he has a great selection of pre-owned cars, well prepared, serviced and cleaned to perfection! tel. 07889 405071

Lakeside Engineering was founded in 1996 to offer a real alternative to the dealer networks. We offer the same or better level of service and repair at a more affordable price, we do not have the plush reception area with the mandatory potted plant and the cappuccino machine, so if that is what you require we are probably not the place for you, but if on the other hand if our ability to service / repair your car to the highest standard at an affordable price within a sensible time scale is what you require then we are the people to see.
