Recommended independent dealers in North Dorset/Somerset/Wiltshire?

Hello all, am looking for a well-regarded independent in the triangle
formed by Yeovil, Bristol and Salisbury. Does anyone know of a decent
lot? I have a fat service coming up and a cambelt change and want to
know of someone who's willing to do it, and return a filled-in copy of
the Land Rover service schedule to me as well, for my records. Anyone
know of any good candidates?

I asked this before many moons ago but no answers, surely there must
be someone?

Cheers all!

I'd recommend Three Shires 4x4 at Swainswick on the A46 just north of
Bath.

I am looking for similar recommendation near to Central London, north of
Thames. I had to nip down last night to change a power steering pump on
Number 2 son's 90 (300 Tdi) to make sure he wasn't ripped off! Got back
around 2 a.m What a drag, 405 miles of lovely motorway, it would have been
nice to find someone to repair it to save me the bother.

Cheers, I've booked it into Range Motors in Poole (or is it
Bournemouth) for next week, slightly closer than Three Shires, and not
on the dreaded A46 which takes about a million hours to drive along
due to traffic!

I'll keep Three Shires on file and will try them out if I don't get
along with Range Motors (who are recommended by my local 4x4 club).

I'd support the recommendation of Three Shires, I have bought from them
and had my Disco serviced by them.

Cheers, I'll give them a call tomorrow, Poole and Bath are over an
hour's drive from me so if your chaps can fit me in I might cancel the
appointment in Poole as Yeovil is only 30 mins away.

Cheers, they're on my list now, currently in third due to the distance
and the A46.

I cancelled the Range Motors appointment and am booked into
Bickleigh's for Monday morning, they're an hour closer than Range.

I've still yet to find the hallowed landy dealer who has a 101FC for a
courtesy car though! If a dealer had that for a courtesy car, I'd
take it to them to get them to wash my windscreen...
