    Default New clutch price

    Just been quoted for labour costs on fitting a new clutch (No DMF) £275 on a Z28 NET from a independent VX specialist. Does this sound fair?

    Good price! The back street boys around here only employe young boy's, just out of college etc. Lucky if they change a tyre properly. Don't want my pride and joy going to them.

    Thanks Dez, I saw on TIS that it was 5.1hr job. I'm pretty confident that they are good. The owner runs his only rally team, racing astra MKII GTE. They have done work for me and my dad in the past, both of us have been impressed. Gonna ring at get it booked in.
