1969 What a year! Concords maiden flight, Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon, but more important than all that Dave Bright founded Brights Auto Centre!!!

Dave did his time at Cathedral Garage and eventually landed a job in Rolls Royce as a fuel systems development engineer. But his passion was always cars and in 1969 he purchased 223 Filton Avenue and Brights Auto Centre was born.

Not a person to stand still in 1970 Dave purchased 225 Filton Avenue and built on a garage and engine reconditioning workshop. By 1973 Dave was reconditioning between 15 and 20 engines a week, as well as selling a huge range of car parts and accessories.
In 2001 Dave handed the business to his two sons and Nigel still runs the business today.

Sadly November 2017 Dave passed away but his name and the business he had a great passion for lives on...What a great man x. 

Here at brights we offer a wide range machining services in our cylinder head workshop and offer a full range of engine parts, engine rebuild kits, cranks, con rods and new cylinder heads.

ACCESSORIES: We carry a full range of accessories in stock lots of 3 for 2 deals so come and see us in store.


We carry out all types of car repairs in our in house garage. With car technology changing so quickly we think it is very important to invest in the latest workshop equipment to enable us to deal with our customers requirements.
