    Yeah I think they are the best people to do it.

    I fitted some new discs and pads this morning. Have something else on its way but I may not fit that for a while.

    It appears to be the guy that fitted my timing belt has done it incorrecly and it could be a few degrees out as the engine is not keeping compression correctly, fingers corssed it will be back by the weekend.

    The news is that the timing seems to be ok, but he can not work out why there is no compression im out of ideas. I dont think it can be related to anything i have changed as i did not touch the block any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

    The engine needs 8 new valve on the intake side as there are only 12 i told them to replace all of them as the engine is in bit they may as well.
    As i have not had the car for 6 weeks now i just want it back so i have also asked them to change the oil and do the gearbox oil as well.

    Very annoying so i am going to see if i can get my money back and get a second hand one from the breakers tomorrow as i need my car back on Monday or im fooked
