where to go from SW? OPC/Specialist?

Firstly, thanks for evewryone's help previously. Bought a '99 996 after the advice.

Just calling on some experience here. It's now due the annual service.

Is it worth continuing with the full OPC history at 5 yrs old?

Also being based in SW London there aren't any specialists nearby. Where do people go? I'm hoping to drop the car off on a saturday or if not then a weekday morning (and get back to W1 by mid morning using public transport).

My problem is that JZ are a pain to get to and appear not to do the services on Saturday. How are Northway? Anybody had to do something similar?

Also having some strange effects with the brakes. First pressure slows it down ok but if I increase the braking I don't get the full power I would expect. The old corsa would attempt to launch me through the windscreen... Doesn't seem like the ABS is causing the problem (no modulation of pressure) just not many negative Gs produced.

Camtune in Godaliming (within 100 yards of station and it's a nice drive down the A3)

Jeez, when you said SW I thought you meant somewhere wild like Hampshire.

We have noone. No OPC, no indies, nothing.

I take my 928 all the way to Wembley Jaz (not JZ), 100 miles each way. They are excellent and very friendly.

Well I have managed to say Jeez, Jaz and JZ all in one message and thus should be up for a prize.
