One always feels as if one is in good hands; at Jagtech your problems are discussed with you, you're not just processed you're engaged with.

Jon T

The perfect place to take care of the Jag... Beautiful, well-equipped workshops. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and a waiting area you could live in! Just how you'd wish a garage to be.

Joyce C

I had my car recently repaired at JAGtechnic. I was extremely pleased with the work carried out. The staff were very helpful and courteous.

Chric W

I first met Paul when I was having issues with my Jaguar XF several years ago. He and his people not only knew the cars they worked on, but they went above and beyond to help and provide advice on how to run and maintain the cars. He has now worked on two of my Jaguars, and we bought a smaller car from him several years ago, which has proved more reliable than many of a similar age. I would always recommend Paul and his businesses, and he is a credit to the local area.

Paul Chip-Smith and the team are always willing to the extra mile to ensure that my Jaguar is always in Tip-Top condition. I thoroughly recommend that you use them. You will not be disappointed.

Paul and the team at JAGtechnic are always more than happy to help and have a fantastic can-do attitude. I would recommend to everyone for any motoring needs.

Max G

JAGtechnic serviced and maintained my first Jaguar and instilled a confidence in me which lead me to buy my second Jaguar directly from them. They clearly know their business and are always available for advice. The service is timely, professional and efficient. That ticks all the boxes.

Alfred S

I have had my Jag XK signature cared for by JagTechnic for 2/3 years now and have found them excellent in servicing and any queries about issues ....they have been empathetic and come up with solutions, always treating one with courtesy and friendliness. From Reception to the technicians ...they certainly know their job...well done! Alf Simcox

Ian C

Paul Chipp-Smith and the team at JagTechnic are a local independent Jaguar dealership that offer a personal service at fair prices. I have used them over the last 7 years and have found them to be honest, hard-working, and enthusiastic about the business they are in, and very customer orientated.

Bernard S

I have driven Jaguars for 25 years and was very happy to discover Paul and the team at Jagtech some 7 years ago. They are a skilled team and have kept my cars in excellent condition since then.

Jo C

Have been using Jagtechnic for a few years now and what amazing service from Paul and the team. I recently used the Engine Detox for my car and cannot believe how much better my car is running now.

Peter L

I have always found Paul and his team to be thorough, professional and friendly. They supplied my restored Jaguar XK8 back in 2013 and I have been using them ever since - they understand their Jaguars and are always honest and upfront with me. I would recommend their service and restoration work to anyone, they are first class.

Peter H

I was recommended to JAGtechnic when looking for storage for a new, but somewhat unusual vehicle when retirement plans were curtailed. Paul and his team offered a solution. The team is always pleasant and friendly especially as I often request to take the vehicle in question out at odd times and at short notice. I would not hesitate to recommend JAGtecnic to anyone. Sincerely, Peter H.

Roy J

This is a jolly good company with Paul and his great knowledgeable team that know how to look after my Jaguars. Having two Jags I rely on JAGtechnic to keep them both running to perfection. Nothing has been too much trouble for them. Having previously taken my Jags to other garages the service from JAGtechnic has easily outweighed my past experiences. In fact, JAGtechnic managed to fix my convertible roof problem that another Jag garage could not fix. Prices are very reasonable compared to some other garages and I highly recommend them.

Mandy S

Good value for money, fantastic service, have always been very attentive, and the car always comes back cleaned.

Peter P

I have known JAGtechnic since its inception and have found Paul and his team to be first-class in their service and support. They have this year looked after two of my Jaguars, including long term storage and re-commissioning, with a no-fuss and helpful approach. Having owned many Jaguars over several years I would have no hesitation in recommending JAGtechnic to any Jaguar owner for all their service requirements.

P Walker

l would like say a big thank you to you and your team for the help you gave me with the post purchase inspection, advice and the very professional work carried out to my XKR-S.


I realised there were some very difficult issues to attend to not to mention the Alcon brakes and obtaining the factory settings for the geometry settings for the wheels. Which all took time and effort to obtain and I am sure would have put a lot of people off.


Having you look after my XKR-S and previous vehicles I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody wanting a truly honest, friendly and professional job carried out.

Peter Leake - Former Jaguar Global Dealer Training Manager

Paul, it really does show the breadth of work you do, and the quality. It is, as you say, all but brand new. I was amazed at how well the interior had come up, and the door casings look spectacular. I really cant wait to drive it to really get the feel of what you guys have done. Wheels looked exactly right on the car, the paint work is a sensation and the attention to detail definitive., brings back those heady days of Jaguar before the 'change'!!! My thanks again, Paul, for a job very well done.

Tony O’Keeffe - Jaguar Heritage Communications Officer

Paul, I would like to personally thank you and your staff Paul Jackson and James Miller for your support with the Goodwood Revival Ride & Drive. The event was unfortunately very late in the planning and without the very professional assistance from yourself and the staff it would not have been the success it was. The presentation of the cars was excellent and unfortunately you all had to work a bit harder than I had hoped. However you carried it off and I really appreciate you all giving up your time.

Ian & Rita Crossley

Rita and I have known Paul Chip-Smith for about 6 months and we have been extremely pleased with both Paul himself and the way he runs JAGtechnic. Paul initially helped us after we had purchased a 2003 Jaguar XK8 that had some quality issues, and which we later returned to the seller on Paul's advice.

He later helped us not only find a "˜new' 2006 Jaguar XK with which we are very pleased, but also inspected the car prior to purchase and advised us of items that required attention. We have found him to be very honest, professional, and above all a keen Jaguar enthusiast. The facilities at JAGtechnic are very clean and modern, with the latest computer diagnostics and mechanical capabilities, and his associates are knowledgeable and always extremely helpful.

It is rather nice to receive the personal attention of a small independent Jaguar dealer like JAGtechnic rather than the impersonal treatment that sometimes accompanies larger organisations. We find the level of attention to detail to be very high, the level of service to be Jaguar level or above, and we intend to be customers of JAGtechnic for many years to come.

Martin Willard

Today I 'dodged a bullet' and my faith in decent trades folk is restored!!!
Had loads of error messages and a massive red-light appear of the dashboard of the car last night "DPF full".... Looking on line it would appear that the remedy was a replacement DPF for circa £2k. Also the tyre pressure sensor alerts were all going mad. £1000 to replace them all. I ring the Jaguar dealer I bought it from and they told me to get the car 'recovered' to them. They couldn't start look at it until end of next week and there was no courtesy car until 27th Sept. For the initial diagnostic it would cost £150+vat then whatever was necessary on top. Rubbish and (worryingly) a likely bill in excess of £3k.
I then call JAGtechnic of Eastbourne. They shifted a few things around, organised a courtesy car and asked me to get the car to them ASAP. On arrival they made me a drink and did the diagnostic. They reset everything and all the alerts disappeared. They reset he tyre pressures and analysed the DPF. They told me to do a 'normal' regeneration of the DPF - that was all that was required. I had another couple of issues that they fixed there and then (software based) The car was in there for a couple of hours. It is now perfect again.
My bill from them £40.00.
Great service and clearly not out to rip people off...
Anyone with a Jag or Land Rover may want to give them a try??

Clive Brent

Bought a 2003 Xkr convertible from a dealer in Sandy, it looked great but as an insurance I luckily took it to JAGtechnic to give it the once over. It turned out to have been bodge welded and needing in the region of £5 - £6000 of refurbishment.
I promptly returned it to the dealer and bought a geogeous 2002 XKR in silver from Paul and a lot of our friends have truly admired this very fine example.
In short we came to JAG Technic following a friends recommendation that this was a honest business with great experience and very high standards and lucky we did.

Lee Mumbles

We bought a used Jaguar S type just after Christmas from this garage. First class service and very friendly reception when we arrived.

This garage oozes passion about Jaguars.

Highly recommended and we absolutely love our S type !

Thank you to all at Jagtechnic for a first class service and for enabling us to experience this wonderful car at a reasonable price.

C Haines

FIVE STARS - Bloody brilliant. Had my car in the main dealer for 8 days, they couldn't fix it, JAGtechnic solved the issue overnight. Couldn't believe it when they called me the next day to say it was fixed.

C Payne

First class service, polite and very helpful. Superfast in dealing with a query and booking you in at short notice where possible. The standard of work superb - car always returned quickly and in tip-top condition. highly recommended - very satisfied

S James

New customer, having only used main dealers in the past I was a little apprehensive about using an independent specialist to take care of my 3 year old Jaguar. Having spent a lot of time researching Jagtechnic and speaking to existing customers I was pleasantly surprised by the level and service and friendliness of the staff. The car needed a couple of additional repairs, which had been advised by the main dealer, my surprise came when I was quoted for the exact same repair by Jagtechnic, they were £180 cheaper, approximately 40% less than the main dealer. Well done Jagtechnic, very, very happy customer. Would recommend to anyone, especially those using main dealers.

David R

As I don't drive a Jaguar it is very nice to receive the same level of service when I needed help replacing a tyre, from the advice to the price everything was explained in language I could easily understand. Very quick to respond to me and able to accommodate my busy schedule. It will be even easier for me to recommend Paul and the team in future.

Our car had a big service including a cambelt replacement. The work was undertaken very efficiently and in good time. The car was cleaned prior to being collected and all the staff were helpful and friendly. We can thoroughly recommend them.
