The garage I took the car to for the springs replacing told me that their supplier was listing 2 different front springs for the 2.2dti SRi, a standard SRI spring and a lowered SRi spring. including fitting the standard would be about £150 but the lowered would be around £175. Since then he's contacted me to tell me that the drive shaft boots have split and need replacing at a cost of £112.
He told me the car should be ready at 4.30pm but when I phoned he's told me that the supplier has delivered the wrong parts and it wont be ready till tomorrow. While I was on the phone I asked him to confirm to overall cost of the work and parts. He said it was the more expensive 'lower SRi springs' that I needed and the overall bill is £298. if the boots are costing £112 that means the springs have jumped to £186!?
Is he talking out of his arse and just taking me for a mug?
