M32 repairs - Cornwall
Decided to start a new thread just to discuss the fixing of my gearbox
I have whirring noise in gears 3,4,5 and 6 and so from looking at the many threads on here it seems I need the bearings changing.
I've emailed a few garages sourced through these forums, the quickest to reply were WG Motorworks who quoted me £599 inc VAT and said the work takes 4 hours, they have lots of + reviews on here.
The problem is I live in Cornwall and so is a 340 mile drive away! The other problem is that all the garages I have contacted "locally" (ie within the South West, still up to 200 miles away) seem to be quoting me around £1500 + VAT and one even said they'd need the car for 4 days!
So, it would be cheaper for me to drive to Kent, stay in a Premier Inn overnight, get it fixed in morning then drive home. This seems a little crazy but don't see what other option I have.
If anyone knows of a good local gearbox repairer closer that isn't going to break my bank then please let me know
