My costs were, as far as I could make out, the cheapest I could find. I had quotes up to £900 WITHOUT transport! In the end I settled on the £720 quote as being the best. The quotes from Alfa dealerships were much the most expensive.
Pud 237 I wish I had been able to get my car to you if your charges are much lower.
Mr Caine, I would not have been so angry at the garage if they hadn't completely ignored all the evidence I presented them. They only decided to admit they were wrong AFTER I decided to sue, and I STILL got nothing back.
Yes I'm aggreived at their actions but I, like many people, do not always go out to buy one specific car and would therefore not research every single element of a whole range of cars before they bought. My point would be that it is up to the dealer to tell the truth and the law to protect us when they don't. In neither case was that apparent. As for the water pump, many garages will not give a warranty for the belt if the water pump pulley fails, therefore it should always be replaced when the belt is.
