Renault servicing near Southampton

The timing and alternator belts are due for changing on my 1.9DCI Scenic. I have been quoted nearly 450 at the main dealers. I don't want the whole engine changed, for goodness sake! Has anyone used another garage in or not too far from Southampton and had good service at a reasonable cost? I do want a proper job done, but at a fair price. Thanks for any (clean) suggestions.

Some advise you get the water pump changed at the same time plus all the belts fit a Belt kit rather than just the belt.

I'm sure you can knock a good bit of Renault's quote.

Ensure you get a workshop with some Renault experience.

Like otto said, Do the water pump as well and all the tensioners!

Think 270 is more like it at a independant garage.

Theres a thread for garage recomendatons on here somewhere, Traul through that for a southampton garage! May strike it lucky!
