Talking Proud new owner of a 147!

Hi all

I just bought a 2 litre, 07 147 and I love her! Got the car for an absolute steal at 2000 with 41,000 on the clock but she needs a cam belt change, the gear shift is a little loose and I think the exhaust needs some attention too. Still, despite all this, she drives beautifully, really comes alive with some revs and is so much fun!

I'm looking at a few places to get all of this stuff done. I am leaning towards motor mech as I live in Birmingham, but have also spoken to auto lusso and the alfa workshop. Any anecdotes or experiences to help me decide where to take my new pride and joy? I have been reading these forums for a long time before buying so I have read about the gear box bushes, cam belt issues and so on, it would just be nice to have some advice on where to get my car looked at.
