Just spoke to Straightline Perfomance in Malvern, who did my original timing belt change for a very reasonable price - I may just use them as they did it before. Has anyone else used them here?

I love how their address says "Near Worcester".

Yeah, they've got good reviews and if they're in Malvern then people will be travelling to go to them, so that's a good sign.

Some great driving roads around Malvern. Lots of walkers about at the moment though.

You could drop off your car, and while they are doing the cambelt, do some hiking and get angry at people driving too fast, then go for a drive and get angry at hikers.
