I've heard a lot of bad about Mr Clutch! Might sound crazy but have you asked a dealer? They used to do clutches on fixed price, and they might be competitive on price - plus you'd get a courtesy car etc.. If you say you've had other quotes they'll try and match in my experience.

Have to agree, I've heard more bad than good as well but complaints always get reactions and stick in the mind...

You are midway between the two Barons dealers or Vines in Guildford, as James said worth a punt...

I think you could have doubled the price or even tripled!

if you have not had the clutch down yet my dealings with Mr Clutch on a non-mini was not good, 3 times back and a lot of verbal dialogue....

try 'Waterfall' based in Wimbledon for a car transporter service.

price for my daughters car was reasonable as a non runner

good luck
