    They will use whatever you ask them to.

    I had a lot of work on an old Corrado done by those guys and I even free issued a sunroof cartridge from a breakers for them to fit. Saved me a fortune, many garages won`t be this flexible.
    You see some nice metal in there, old Porsches, M cars etc..which is a good indicator of some ones reputation.

    Not used them for a good while but a mate of mine had work carried out on his C4S and spoke highly of them.

    I am sure Swift are also a reputable outfit but I dont have personal first hand experience with them to give a recommendation.
