Hi, Im looking for a private/other mechanic who can change the cambelt, variator and waterpump on our just bought r reg Alfa Spider. Quote from garage ridiculous...got an offer from someone on here for 350 all in but its a bit far. Anyone know anyone who can do this ? The other guy was charging 80 for the labour, the parts come to 270. Garage was trying to charge more than double that and its not even an Alfa one !!!
Thanks for all ideas...

hi Jen,

£350 is a good price for one of these, i know that looks like a lot of money :cry:

personally i would recommend asking the question in the London and South east region lounge, someone in there may be able to point you in the way of a specialist or there may be someone more local who can help.

If you do find someone ask them if they will be using the correct tools, if they mention cam locks then it would seem that have more and a vague idea of what they are doing :thumbs:

good luck, hope you get your spider sorted so you can enjoy the summer
