Citroen Specialist - Leeds area?

Can anyone recommend a Citroen specialist in the Leeds area?

My wife's Cactus needs a service, brake pads and a "general engine dysfunction" error looking at (no stored codes with an ODB2 connected and no side effects noted).

I don't fancy Evans Halshaw based on my experience of them in the past (although not Citroen) and the places coming up on Google are all unknown to me.

Any recommendations appreciated.

I think the Cactus hasn’t been one of Citroen’s better cars judging by the dealership and Citroen UK experience. Mine has had a catalogue of never ending issues and it ain’t 5 years old yet.

Citroen UK recommend Evans Halmshaw but in my opinion speaking to other people and my own experiences nobody knows enough in the UK how to service these 100% satisfactorily. Sounds sad but it’s close to goodbye Citroen.

I just traded my Cactus in for a C5 Aircross - three years, 32,000 miles (and 49.6mpg over that) and zero issues (I don't consider safety recalls as issues since all makes get them). My dealer is AE Wilcox in Wickwar, Gloucestershire. I have used them for over twenty five years and they are absolutely great at servicing and service! I highly recommend them. Servicing a Cactus isn't rocket science.
