    I had a oil leak which i initially thought was a pilot bushing on the gearbox, i took a drive down to Alex Crows garage in Suffolk which was a quick half hour drive away. Alex is a nice chap and spends alot of time explaining things. He promptly stuck it on a ramp and took the under panelling off, after doing this it was apparent it was not the pilot bushing. slow drip on the bell housing, After looking further into it Alex concluded that the leak was definitely from the rear crank oil seal\cover area.

    I spoke to a few respected indies to get some quotes and Alex came up with a comparable price, surprisingly, nearly all the indies gave a similar quote!

    As Alex was the nearest and most convenient, i booked it in with him. Dropped the car off on monday and picked it up on Tuesday.

    While it was there he checked the caliper bleed nipples for me as one seemed to have a slight leak and he also changed the heat exchanger valve (does the same job as the duo valve)

    prompt service, nice guy and quality work (well only time will tell i guess)

    Just like to express my thanks and to recommend Alex Crow and his team for looking after the car.
