    Default HELP - New Steering Rack needed for the Vec-B.

    Folks,

    Following on from my thread yesterday, I need a new Steering Rack for the B.

    My mechanic is saying a re-con alone is £140 + VAT, im sure I should be able to get one cheaper.

    CAN ANYONE PLEASE POINT ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR SOMEONE IN BIRMINGHAM?

    My car is a Vec-B 2.2 SRI DTI 2001/51.

    I have been advised it would be false economy to go for another second hand as if it goes again in a month ro whatnot, its another rack plus £70 odd labour.

    For an old motor £140+VAT seems steep (he wants exchange of old one too).....i'd have thought it would be somewhere nearer the £100 mark.

    HELP


    Bye bye Vec B

    Just had a call, chap at the garage ordered one last night before closing.

    Ready for this - £125 +VAT!!



    So I guess I got about a £200+ bill ready an waiting for me on the way home!!

    !! G R E A T !!

    He said he has had bad experience with ebay guarantee's before so chose to go with his own preferred supplier.

    Oh well, POM for an extra few squids I guess??
