Any mechanics in Devon or SW?

Hello again!

is there any mechanics recommended in the SW or in Devon?
I need to do the ABS rings and front discs, and although I could manage the discs myself it would make sense to do all at once. Also, given the price of CV joints I think I would prefer getting them changed as opposed to just changing the reluctor ring...

So, if anyone knows anyone then please let me know!

Thanks!

Definetly makes sense to do the CV's at the same time. Pretty simple jobs to do yourself, there is a great how-to on .org http://forums.mg-rover.org/showthread.php?t=433852

Hey Pompski! Yeah, thanks for the link - I had already seen this how to which is why I know I'm not keen to do this myself!! I don't mind getting my hands dirty but I hate starting a job, getting half way through wishing I hadn't! How long, roughly, would you expect this to take a good mechanic?

I'd allow 1.5 hours a side to do the job properly provided everything comes apart !!
