Can anyone recommend a good scooby mechanic in N. London area?

Both mine and more desperately my firiends Turbo 2000s are in need of a clutch change.

1) From where and what would be a good replacement clutch for a pretty much standard UK spec MY99 Turbo 2000?

2) More to the point can someone please recommend a good, resonable mechanic in N.London to carry out this work and future servicing etc?

many thanks
Angelo.

Exedy organic is probably your best bet not as heavy as a paddle clutch or quite as sharp so are still ok in traffic-got one in mine-would recommend a lightened flywheel at the same time if you dont mind the expense-it gives a noticeable gain in acceleration an obviously whilst ya havin the clutch saves on labour charges.

Usually you want either the existing flywheel skimming(if in good enough condition) or a replacement subaru one-pricewise makes economic sense to go for a lightened one as they aint much more than a std one.

Got my clutch/flywheel done at http://www.zenperformance.co.uk/ know they aint close to ya but had a mate travel from devon to em just depends what ya want-i cant think of anyone near you i could recommend.Zen are good though.
