    Agreed, that rear suspension looks incorrect
    I pointed this out to someone a few weeks ago which looked very similar
    Check both sides and compare
    edit :
    see you have since replied about a load in the boot, so have this removed when having it inspected and for future photos!

    £500 is way over the top, get the part numbers from the quote and get prices from two local garages
    What actual parts have failed?

    I had the rear shocks, springs and bushes replaced for that (and that was at a dealership too)

    Also what size tyres are on that?

    Now the silly question, why the topic title?
    "only have 2 small ones red" (the engine I understand)
    I've looked at the two photos, but can't see if there is something specific I am supposed to be looking at (apart from the obvious red car)

    It's in the photo section and he only has two small pictures, made sense to me

    Reminds me of my old SRi buddy, I miss her
