are these costs Kosher
the Spider was in a local Alfa garage (not a main dealer ) to have the hood mechanism sorted,which he did and now works perfectly.
Whilst chatting about what he had fixed he remarked ' nice car BUT your suspension is knackered......... oh and so is your radiator'.Front wishbones and rear suspension bushes evidently and old rad's just need replacing.
OK ,how much I ask making sure I am sitting down.Rear arms need rebushing first as the steel insert wrecks the aluminium sub frame:about 600 quid, radiator about 400 quid.
I stopped him there and gratefull I was sitting down.
Rebushing kit for rear suspension is about 90 quid and rad's say 150,so the rest is labour.
Does the £1000 cost for these 2 jobs sound reasonable ?
I am going to get the car up on the ramp at a local garage just to make sure the problem really is a problem but would be interested in knowing what other people have paid for these
