Re: alfa madness
Yes, on the face of it, its a fair bit.
I'll give some very rough estimates of my own.
Full service- £140 or £180 with spark plugs.
2* outer CV joint gaiters- £55
Suspension joint (wishbone+tracking)- £75
Front discs and pads- £120-£150
Light fault (? hard to guess)- £40.
OK, by my rough figuring, at most is about £514, and at best £474,
That would be based on £30 per hour rate, and inclusive of VAT.
I'm assuming that you'll only be charged for 1 MOT- car left at test station for repair. Still, it falls a bit short of the £630 estimate you've been given. (Remember, estimates are not quotes, and therefore not prior agreed prices such as you would pay for motor insurance.)
Still, as some of the labour operations could be combined, I think it could be done for a little less.
