Hi folks. I've found a few bits here and there through the search function, but nothing that really answers my query. Anyone got any views on this being expensive...
Coming up to 60k service (inc Spark Plugs) and also due a cambelt change, and at the same time the variator needs replacing to get rid of that god awful and embarassing diesel noise on startup!
My local indy has quoted me (this all includes labour):
£150 + VAT for 60k service +£100 + VAT for plugs (so £250+VAT in total)
£200 + VAT for cambelt and tensioners change
£90 for variator change
£634 inc VAT parts and labour for the lot!!! ouch!
So far I've sourced spark plugs myself for £50
...though there seems to be a choice of NGK or genuine alfa. Which are best?????
At least that would take it to below £600! Ideally I need some of the bushes and other bits of suspension replaces, and also the air-con serviced, but those things will have to wait! I definately won't be selling it for a while once it's had all this money spent on it!
Thanks for any input
