After numerous dissatisfying experiences with the main dealer, I tried Clive Atthowe on recommendation from a friend. Thereafter (for the past four years) I have used them for all my servicing and MOT’s, battery replacement, seatbelt replacement, water pump, DSG service, Haldex service and also general car advice. I also had a Revo Stage 1 remap carried out by them, which was excellent. They are honest, friendly, reliable and the quality of their work is top. Other reviews say they are a little more expensive than other companies, however you definitely get what pay for.

I took my Ford SMax to Clive to help diagnose an engine management issue causing erratic starting and cutting out, not raising ECU trouble codes. Ford dealer had failed to help. Clive used all his experience to detect and diagnose a rare fuel rail pressure sensor issue, prove the faulty part on his bench and replace, all for less than the price of the part Ford garage recommended I try (which was not the issue).When collecting the car Clive took time to explain in detail what they had found, how they detected it and what checks they did.As ever a top class service from this professional crew

I had a problem fitting some Revo parts over the weekend, so I called into Clive Atthowe (local Revo dealer) first thing Monday morning.The team were friendly and very knowledgeable. They gave me advice on fitting the remaining parts, but as I didn't have the required tools they managed to fit my car in later that day to take a look!Based on this experience, I would strongly recommend and I will be back in the near future for more parts and tuning!

I put my car in for a Stage 1 tune having never had one before and I'm very pleased with the performance increase, however more importantly, they identified that my Quattro system wasn't working - there were no warning lights in the car so I had no idea, although I had noticed the ESC cutting in rather a lot under acceleration. Haldex service carried out and a new pump fitted (open circuit) and the car has been transformed. Highly recommended 😀

Recently had a custom remap (not plug in tuning box) on my Isuzu Dmax, spoke to Clive before this was carried out to discuss requirements and no promises were made for massive increase in fuel consumption, this is already an excellent all round vehicle and regularly used for towing 3000kg, results were extremely impressive, immediately noticed very quite engine tone around town, huge amount of torque increase when towing and fuel consumption up easily 10%, there are only a handful of people in the UK who are at this level of tuning and remapping and although its probably not Clive's most complex remap its reassuring to know it was carried at CAT Automotive.

Very knowledgeable and professional service. Communicated at each stage of work supporting with photographs afterwards for a valve and inlet carbon clean on an S5 4.2 v8 Audi. Significant improvement felt on cold start, idle and return of smooth power delivery throughout rev range. Very worth while for direct injection engines prone to carbon build up. Will most certainly use again and highly recommended.

Clive is the go-to-man for a comprehensive diagnoses of any VAG / Diesel problems - please disregard any negative feedback on Google as it's just not true. He goes the extra mile to fix your vehicle. Very satisfied with his work.

I have had 4 cars done by Clive over the years, all REVO remapping. I think that says it all don't you? Can't fault the product, the ,company or the man behind it. This is the must go place for your remaining.

I booked and paid a deposit of £120 for a remap last year. Left the car and received a phone call to say it could not be done as he didn't have a map for it as it was auto. He did do a power run but would not refund and said I would get a discount if I used him again. Don't think so ! I wasn't asked at time of booking if it was auto or not.£120 power run, hotel for the night a as I did not live local, so a very expensive time. Would have been easier to swallow if a full refund was made.Only making this public as I'm about to get it done by someone who can do it.

David writes 'what he doesn't know about engine tuning isn't worth knowing'. Well I don't think he knows very much. My Porsche 911 had a slight misfire and after having it in to test he said he needed it back for a full day to do a fuel system pressure test. Instead I took it to Lancaster's in Cambridge who tested it and replaced a spark plug. Either Mr Atthowe couldn't diagnose a faulty spark plug or he was going to charge me for a full days work. Make your own mind up.

Clive has to be one of most respected and qualified technicians in the country and if your're lucky enough to live in the Norfolk area then I wouldn't hesitate or waste any further time in looking for where to bring your car. Clive is an inspiration, mentor and life long friend of whom I have the up most respect and admiration for and what he doesn't know about car engine tuning simply isn't worth knowing.
