SWSS MINI Who are we?

SWSSMINI is a MINI Specialist located 1 mile outside the centre of Cardiff formed by two best friends, Phil Whitmarsh and Gareth Lages from an existing business back in 2011 which was then a long and established business serving its customers as a SAAB specialist 9 years prior. Since then we have fully embraced the MINI brand including MINI servicing and carrying out specialised MINI repairs to our customers.

Due to our success with MINI, we expanded into larger premises to our current address, Unit 2, Lewis Court, Portmanmoor Road back in July 2015. This has enabled us to expand further into the BMW MINI brand, including MINI servicing, MINI vehicle sales, MINI parts and added and MOT centre to the site. Our aim is to offer a complete MINI service and a more of a personal relationship with our customers in way of a one stop MINI centre.

We have also heavily invested in tooling, MINI diagnostic equipment and personnel including BMW/MINI trained staff. This allows to offer a complete range of MINI specialist services from MINI diagnostics, Walnut Shell Blasting, MINI Parts, MOT’s and all types of MINI repairs and modifications.

We are an authorised Manic dealer for tuning the MINI Cooper S, JCW including both N14 and N18 engines. Added to which we can supply all types of performance upgrades you can think of for you to personalise your MINI.

Here at SWSSMINI we aim to cut your MINI service cost by offering you many different options in either servicing, parts including performance alternatives and can offer any advice or any concerns you many have for your MINI. We will do our upmost to assist in any way we can.

SWSSMINI also has a full range of facilities whilst your MINI is in for repair or MOT. You can choose if you wish to wait in our comfortable lounge area or alternatively we can drop you into the city centre or Cardiff Bay. Additionally SWSSMINI can offer a local collection service and have MINI courtesy vehicles available upon request.

Our aim is to always provide a transparent and fair assessment on any work and provide a fair quote for any work we need to carry out. We make sure we only do work that is necessary and this has led us to become rated in the TOP 50 of small garages in the UK motor codes competition in association with the Good Garage Scheme.

We repair MINI’s, we drive MINI’s, we love MINI’s.
