    there a re a few round your way mate. I use Lily and constable down in East Peckham. I dont know whether they would undertake that sort of job though. BM works in BexleyHeath would though and they come recommended by lots of people, ive never used them myself though.

    I removed the flaps myself, I could give you some pointers if you wanted to do the job.
    If not I recommend KDS in Gillingham, they have carried out mechanical work on all my cars including my current 530D.
