perfect really pleased not sure if it in my head but car seems to run that little bit smoother lol anyways the price came to £398.99 for that i got gates belts dont know if these are any good or not. but all work done was aux belt. belt stretcher. trans belt camshaft drive set .also a safety and general car look over check. turns out i need new rear discs .but will last a lil longer coolant is only working to -7. and they washed the car . they even give you the old parts back funny thing is they looked in really good order .but you never know huh .all in all i am really happy .not sure wife is tho hahaha anyways i have been out all night playing ill keep you posted if anything changes but looks like the right place for my lil bella .

Good result - maybe they should have a word with their collegues in Aberdeen about customer service...

Yes, AC in Aberdeen is Fiat only, although used to be Alfa as well. Now they don't really want to know. I've just got four new tyres on my GTV, as it came with a mixed selection of part worn, illegal, and reasonable budget tyres. Now handles much better. Sadly, the front wheel bearing started to give up shortly after (helped along by some enthusiastic driving keeping up with Graham's MiTo the other week), so it's in the garage to be picked up tonight. I managed an oil change, filter, plugs and thermostat myself though, which was all good fun.
