Belt change NW London

My 500 1.2 is seven years old and desperately needs a belt change. May need to water pump doing as well, but am not sure. Car has only done 18k miles.

I have searched the forums and the 3 garages recommended seem to be

Southgate motors (closest in Barnet)
Solo italia in Whitney
http://www.bianco-alfa.com/ In Surrey.

Any other recommendations or should I go for any of the above?

Also anything else I should do while the car is in there?

Thanks

Hi,
the engine is also used in the Ford Ka.., so any decent mechanic will be familiar with the job,
I would get the waterpump changed - as it's exposed doing the cambelt
