Lepsons have a good setup, do a great job and are pretty good price-wise too.

F*ck me...SE London looks a bit different to when I lived there for 2 years...I was a bit closer to London Bridge then Dartford Bridge though Grin

Anyway Smokey, if you need anyone to keep an eye out for the Bandit for you then just ask thumbsup

Got to be one of my all time favourite cars

I too have used Lepsons a few times and can confirm they do a good job. They may even have an option to loan you something in the meantime (not a problem I encounter so am not sure).

Excel are well regarded on here but I have not used them.
