Following on from the 5 Specialist thread I thought it might be useful to have a Wiki of recommended MX-5 garages and suppliers.

This is very much a first draft so feel free to alter and make additions as you see fit!

If you want to recommend somewhere already listed, just add your name to the "Recommended by" column rather than adding a separate entry.
