"I bought an MOT via Groupon at a bargain price but like every deal you think "there's gotta be a catch!" Well with Concorde Leicester there really wasn't. Great customer service, clean garage and reception environment. Unfortunately my car failed it's MOT so they arranged for new tyres to be delivered that day and less than 24 hours later my car had new tyres (keenly priced) and passed its MOT (the retest was FOC!) Then to top it off, I've got a £20 voucher off my next visit! Very impressive stuff indeed. Will certainly be going back for my next service! Thanks to everyone at the Leicester Branch for looking after my baby....... :-) "
