    I can recommend K & M Auto-Techniks

    http://www.kmautotechniks.co.uk/

    They are really friendly, helpful guys. I don't know if they are cheap or expensive but I just had the following done:

    New glow plugs
    Replace swirl flaps
    Replace camshaft sensor
    Replace brake fluid
    Replace front wishbone bushes
    Fix fag lighter

    Cost incl. parts & labour was £585

    Car was picked up from my office and brought back all clean and shiny.

    As I said, they will get my business again as they are good guys regardless of whether that lot was expensive or otherwise.

    sounds pretty decent...

    all the parts and labour included and still only came to that much seems like a good deal...

    and its just up the road from home and work for me too!!!

    Just to report back: K&M were excellent. Very friendly guys who were happy to look at the car and confirm what they thought the knocking sound was.

    I got them to replace the RTABs and look at the gearchange (3rd becomes 'invisible' once you select 5th)

    RTABs replaced for a very reasonable charge. No knocking sound
    Gearchange is unfortunately a new gearbox - but they were kind enough to recommend a chap selling one, and of course advising might be a good idea to wait until the clutch needs doing and do the lot in one go.

    Very happy - would recommend to anyone in the area. The only 'downside' is that they have a 3 week waiting list!
