€1200 for timing belt, water pump, oil and oil filter is outrageous. €600-700 is about right. I've had 2 or 3 belts replaced in different cars over the past few years - it's never been more than €600. I had it done in ti Autos recently for just under €600 (and that was with some other bits & pieces too).Try The Sweep in Kilmeaden. I gave them a call about the timing belt service on my Giulietta (1.6jtdm) and they sounded accommodating enough. Kilmeaden isn't too far from Cork.
They said a timing belt service would be around €600 on the Giulietta. Not sure if that includes oil and oil filter too though. Grandon's quoted me €1200 for timing belt, water pump, oil and oil filter. I nearly needed new trousers after hearing that.
