    We used to be fortunate enough to have Nick at Pure Motorsport, though about a year ago they stopped their workshop/garage side of things to focus full time on parts. Last time I spoke to Nick he recommended trying R&S Motors in Saltash, however I havent needed to use them yet.

    I've heard R&S recommended too.

    I'll definitely be observing this thread. I remember Nick from the Quay garage, thoroughly decent bloke and a real loss that he's no longer offering his services (although I'm delighted to hear Pure Motorsport is going from strength to strength). On a separate note, I wonder what happened to his courtesy car (the little micra) after it started boiling its coolant on me in Truro...

    R&S motors however they maybe a tad more pricey than SJM from memory.

    Drop them both an enquiry and see but sadly it won't be cheap pal

    Has anyone ever tried Millers in Falmouth?
    They claim to have ex Renault techs etc.

    I asked Millers for a quote on my 197 belts and was shocked at the price. Can't find the actual quote now annoyingly, but it was a fair wack more than Dales.

    Just had the belts done on the Clio and took it to SJM in the end. Dropped it one weekend and picked it up the next. Peace of mind and a fair price even with the fuel taken into account.

    Would you mind pm'ing me what you spent on them being done and fuel?
    Need mine done next year and I'm considering making the trip up to SJM for peace of mind

    If anyone ever gets stuck try Andy at AMC in Paignton, Devon. Over the border but not a great distance from Cornwall and he has a lot of experience with 182's, 197's, etc.
