Dealer or Specialist?

Hi, just after some opinions on whether to keep my history up with Subaru or change to a specialist? My car is on a 2002 plate and has total Subaru history thus far 9 stamps in total, would you keep adding to this? Im based in Peterborough and Zen is only 30 mins away,

Cheers,
Ben

theres a hell of alot of have a go tuners, and ones that have suddenly sprung up that realy don't know anything about tuning.

i know a self proclaimed tuner company who has a dealer trained mechanic working for them, they don't replace tensioners when they do cambelts or even keep them in stock.

scary stuff
