Great service, great prices and a great set up!
Got Road Hero space saver wheel kit from them. Although was a bit sceptical as it seemed like an extra cost at the time but trust me, I have never regretted this purchase. It has saved me from being stranded so many times. Thanks to their friendly staff who convinced me for this purchase.
Elite is the solution for all your car related problems.
Got a pair of new alloy wheels fixed from their garage and it just gave my ride a whole new look. So happy with their recommendation.
They have an excellent collection of alloy wheels for both luxury vehicles to your regular everyday vehicle. Just let them know your budget and they will help you select the best fit!
Always get my car servicing done at Elite Rainham and I am so satisfied. Never get the oil leaks and the fluid runouts with them. They tell you exactly when you need to come back and before that your car will keep running smoothly. At least mine has every time.
They do know how to take care of your car. Always feel my car running much smoother and consuming less fuel after getting my car serviced from them.
Keeping you on the straight & narrow.
