    Default can't believe this

    Got an estimate from my local dealer to change clutch and flywheel
    expected a large bill but £1700 took my breath away

    is this a record on here?

    I paid £900 for an uprated 6 Paddle Sintered Racing Clutch kit with brand new master cylinder. I thought that was expensive & that was including fitting

    I'm doing it myself apart from parts only thing i need to get is a set of ramps which at £35 from machinemart is not going to break the bank.

    £1700 is about twice the going rate, so that should make it an easy decision for you. Perhaps they've never done it before, and want to charge you for all the time they'll be referring to manuals for instruction on what to do or phoning their mates for tips. Or, they're busy and don't want your business and giving a high quote is their way of turning your work down.
