    Question New Member with a question please...

    Hi everyone.

    I recently joined the forum and having made the jump from a VW Golf, I have to say I am really enjoying driving an 05 Vauxhall Vectra C 1.8

    Now my question is this, the previous owner had a mechanic for a husband who did all the servicing himself but did not replace the cambelt . I have bought the car and had it just over a week and have now booked it in for the following work:

    Cambelt Kit and Water Pump change
    Thermostat change
    Full Service

    This is more for my peace of mind than anything else but I would be keen to know what you guys think the quote was that I was given for this work??? As a hint, I am taking it to an Independant garage, not a stealer.

    Answers on the back of a postcard....

    I would be expecting a bill around £400 - £450 at the average Indy

    Quote was £487. I also got a quote from a Vauxhall stealer which was £100 more even with the discount for the Masterfit Service Club
