Invoice from garage?

Hi all,

Just picked up my 166 at the garage that have fitted a new gearbox, including install of a Quaife LSD, and installing new starter and alternator.

They quoted me "approximately a days work", but the invoice ended up with 18 hours.

Is it just me, or does this seem fairly unreasonable?

Garage
A days work for two technicians perhaps?

Nah, 5.000km ago, I had the clutch replaced, exhaust renewed, and gearcables/connections replaced, in a total of 9 hours at a non-Alfa-knowledgable garage.

It's **** I agree. I just get a labour cost, no number of hours or days. Where I go I still have no idea what the hourly rate is or if there is one

Ahh were you complaining about the amount of time it took not the vague description

A day is 24 hours so I'd keep quiet about the 6 hours they haven't charged you for
