156 120K service advice
Relating to my 1.9JTD 156. I've left the 120,000 mile major service interval go over a little and the car now has just over 123K on it, so it's getting to the point where it's probably advisable to get it done ASAP.
Now the cam belt was changed at the 60K service when I bought the car, and i've stuck fairly closely to the servicing schedule using a local indie garage ever since as it's my main transport.
The garage obviously know what they're doing and I trust them, but I just wanted to compare other owners experience of costs for this service.
I know it involves at least a new water pump as well, so expect it to be higher than normal, but £408 + VAT (i.e. £490) ?? That's a lot of dosh on a high mileage, 7 year old car.
What have other people paid for this service, and what else does it involve replacing.
Is it worth trying 'other' non-Alfa garages just to save a few quid if I know what they should be replacing? I assume the cost at a main dealer would be extortionate, but I just wanted to compare to set my mind to rest.....
Any (related!) experiences or thoughts appreciated y'all.
