Had 2.1 put in last year by them. A few problems like not being ready when they said and a component failure (not their fault) which was put right. Overall quite satisfied with price etc and they know the engines alright. Time will tell only done about 2k so far!
....I have phoned a few times for advice etc and the two micks have always been friendly and helpful. As said above at their prices I think its OK
