Welcome to FastFit Leeds, your "one stop" car repair workshop

A high-quality, speedy service at a low price, located conveniently in central Leeds – that’s the bottom line when you choose Fast Fit Auto Centre.

Our name says it all: an MOT with us takes one hour on average, while a diagnostic check is usually even quicker.

Both services are part of the broad range we offer, across a wide range of makes and models.

For example, alongside the more usual exhaust and tyre fitting, or maybe a full service, there are specialist offerings such as an air conditioning service and performance tuning and remapping.

Brake disc skimming and resurface

The Pro-Cut process will return your brakes to ex-factory condition. The process matches the disc to the hub. In other words, if there is the slightest run-out in the hub (i.e. it doesn’t rotate in a perfectly true way), the Pro-Cut process will take care of this and correct it by automatically compensating for it.

Brake discs should be skimmed or resurfaced when:

  • There is brake vibration or judder.
  • Discs are corroded or rusty.
  • Brake pads are changed but new discs are not necessary.
  • Brakes feel spongy.
  • Reduced waste and recycling for the environment are important to you

How Does Brake Disc Skimming Work?

The lathe works on the vehicle, by attaching itself directly to the hub. The technology includes an automatic, electronically-controlled, gyroscope system which measures run-out in the hub and corrects for this to an accuracy of 0.025mm. That’s less than the thickness of a human hair!

The automatic surface machining of a disc is completed in around 4 minutes. The complete process takes less than 10 minutes per disc.

All brake discs can be skimmed at least once. The only time your brake discs should be replaced is when they reach minimum thickness. Leading manufacturers have approved the Pro-Cut process of brake disc skimming. These include Porsche, BMW, Nissan, Peugeot, Subaru, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Ferrari General Motors, Kia, Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford, Toyota, Honda and the performance brakes manufacturer EBC.

Brake disc skimming – a better quality and lower cost alternative to brake disc replacement.

A fast, quality service

And while we might be fast, it doesn’t come at the expense of attention to detail.

Our staff are qualified, reliable and friendly: you’re more than welcome to chat while we work on your car, and we’re more than happy to offer advice.

We’re also experienced: four decades and counting suggests as much. We like to think we’re doing something right.

Such high levels of customer service extend throughout your experience with us: we offer free quotes and advice, as well as free checks, for example, of your car’s exhaust, tyres, wheel alignment, brakes, steering and suspension.

Trustworthy & affordable

And on the subject of expense, it should be pointed out that we offer low prices throughout our range of services.

Finally, there’s the convenience. Located on the left-hand side of the A58 Wellington Road, just prior to the Armley Gyratory, we’re only 10 minutes away from Leeds city centre, so why not pop into town while we service your car?
