    I've just been quoted £250+VAT to fit a new clutch and slave cylinder, which I think seems a bit steep. This is labour only as I already have the parts. Anyone know a decent garage in my area that could do it for half that? Other threads I've seen are quating prices of £100-150! Thankyou.

    Forgot to mention this... Last weekend I went to a bike shop to look at a 350Z for a mate. We took a wrong turn and ended up in some dodgy-looking back street garage. They had a black 147GTA with a front/side impact. 18" Toora's, didn't see much of it. Anyones on here?
