Probably not, I would get a recomendation from someone on here for a place to go. I have a friend who supplies gear sets to Mr Clutch & he rang them for a quote for his sons car which was extortianate until they realised who it was & then messed the job up!Should I trust them with a cambelt change?
I've seen most of the recommended garages on the forum. Unfortunately, like "the only gay in the village" I seem to be the only zed owner in the South East. Can you believe I've never seen another Mk2 Zed on the street? Lates? I thought that was a kind of creamy coffee! So, where's the nearest branch to London? The nearest good MG specialist I know is in Cambridgeshire.Noooooo! Go see Lates on here
100 miles is a bit of a way! What if there's a complication and they can't complete the job same day?Wise I think. Any thoughts on paying Lates a visit? How far is he from you? Wellingborough I think he is? Coventry area.
Top guys and know their stuff that's for sure.
KV6 plugs from xpart are £9 each anyone paying £100 for 6 plugs is being seriously shafted.Ive been looking at Lates website and looks good. But £600 incl parts is a contrast to a chap in Derby who does them for £450 (alternator belt extra). But has anyone used them before? His webstie is 'Dave MG Mobile Mechanic' - or partner is 'Kayleigh' who works with him and has promoted ther work on .Org (apparently)
I spoke to Kayleigh once who was helpful with info on what they do. They do full service including plugs too but i couldn't see how that would be right since the 180 has iridium plugs that are about £100 from where I've seen so far which last 60k miles. So i'm wondering if they're using the right plugs if the job is that cheap?
I know tcb180 put that he got parts he purchased himself fitted by Lates for £342 so if I could do that and get parts via vulcuan racing for example and save £100 that would be great. Just depends if I have all thats needed. I got the list off another post but im sure Lates can advise me.
Im also getting a quote from a friend of a friend who is ex MGR technician and he may have the gear locking tools. So fingers crossed fopr that one as it might be a better option. But again getting all the correct parts might be too much of a headache?? lol
