UK Rover "Tour Guides"?

It's that time of year again for me to pop on over to the UK side of the pond. I have a meeting in Swindon on May 13th. I think I might fly in to Dublin for a few days and a few pints and then fly in to Bristol a day prior to my meeting. Any of you UK guys live around Swindon?

I wont have access to a vehicle. I need to bring back a Disco 200tdi turbo, intercooler, and an alpine window kit. Have any good breakers and parts shops within reach of the Underground?

Sure, I'll be in Swindon Weds and Thurs the 12th and 13th. I'm staying at the Brook Madison Hotel. Any places around there to score some used LR parts? Looking for a Disco 200tdi turbo, intercooler, and some 110 alpine windows. I'm free most of the afternoon on Wednesday, but not sure what our plans are for later in the evening.

I think 90 and 110 alpines are the same, if so I think I have a set you can have for free. Just pay shipping

pm me with a full list of the bits you need, i'll ask around. There's LR breakers nearby, but he's a bit shifty so i can look further afield.

That hotel is about 12 miles from my house (and only about 4 from my parents place!) and you're only 15 minutes away from a LR dealership if you were feeling flushed
