Need London based mechanic for my RX8

Hi, I live in central London, UK and am looking for a regular mechanic to maintain and service my RX8, as I just don't trust the local service garages and seem to know more then they do.

I have an 04 RX8 currently just clocked over 100k miles.

I need the following work carried out immediately:
  • New clutch fitted
  • Engine Oil change (old service put fully synthetic and I think it's causing problems)
  • Compression Test (1 in 10 hot starts are flooded/or taking ages to crank)

Also considering the following:
  • De-Carbon Engine (seafoam)
  • Fit new engine mounts (rattles when idle occasionaly)

I'm looking to have most of this carried out asap, so would appreciate any advise or reviews of central London based mechanics who are familiar with the RX8 engine.

Powergains Motorsport are worth a look. They know rotaries, they recently built and tuned a street legal and street driven 8 second RX7.
