    Thanks for all the help.
    Well as stated Guys, would keep those interested informed about dmf and clutch fitment @ CGMotorsport - leeds.
    Car was booked in for 9am, when I arrived I had to fill in a works sheet authorising the works to be carried out- I was informed that they would test the gearbox oil for any signs of wear!- (they can test the oil apparently for any contamination from failing parts) before anything else would be done.
    So I handed the keys over and waited to be asked "is there something else"........"I was promised a loan vehicle" I said - as a 16 mile walk back to Bradford would be a little hard on my legs!
    "OH-we lent it out late last night as we had a breakdown come in"!
    Mick- the owner not wanting to let me down(and to save embarresment I guess)very kindly offered to lend me there company van....so off I went.
    3.00pm that day-phone call came and left with my secretary-"cars ready for collection-so off I set to collect,some 60 mins later arrived and was greeted by Mick- who at my request had kept my clutch and dmf to show me the problem as to why it had failed-clutch looked very poorly and dmf had a lot of wear.mind you car has done 105000 miles.
    He then very kindly proceeded to show me his stocks-clutches-dmfs-concentric slave cylinders, all on the shelves- I was then shown the workshop where they make the uprated clutches and lightened flywheels and being from an engineering background , found that really interesting.
    Now for the bill -£626.00 inclusive - this included top up of all fluids-P/S -C/F-B/F etc............
    Sorry this is so long winded and I do tend to go on a bit but if any one on here is needing this doing and needs a recomendation .I would not hesitate to recommend these guys- customer service-efficency-value for money........give cgmotorsport a ring,
    Speak to Mick about possible group buys-he may be able to help!
