Pre Mot - "Still in shock"
I put my 147 TS 2003 (2.0l) in for a pre mot check at a local garage and to be honest still in shock - They quoted me £1901.16......They say I need new back brake pad/disc/calipers (£431+vat) new Track Rod End and Tie Rod (£120+vat)...and new complete new exhaust system (£630+vat)....plus 4.5 hours labour (243+VAT)
Do these prices make sense?
Also, concerned as I was getting a new tyre in kwik fit last month and they looked over the car said the back brake pads were starting to wear and should get them changed in the next service...exhuast was blowing but recommend I just get a flexi pipe welded as they were expensive to replace. This would seem to make a lot sense so didnt expect to hiy with a £2k bill from a local garage!
I'm hoping the local garage is trying to rip me off - Any advice on the cost of these repairs would be a great help.
