    Default Price for cambelt change

    Just hit 50k in my 1.8, so time for the cambelt change I think. Been quoted £245 by a local garage, includes a new waterpump.

    What does everyone think? Good price?

    I'll check with VX as a point of comparison anyway, but would prefer to give the work to the small local garage. Not used them before, but they have a good rep and even take you home while the car is being done and pick you up when it's finished... now that's service!

    £250 was the quote for a CDTi, the 1.8 should be the same, it's the same amount of work.

    And have a new drivebelt put on at the sametime.

    Can you DIY?? The cambelt kit (includes belt, rollers and tensioner) is £60 and the water is about £40 from VX.

    There's something not right there, it shouldn't be anywhere near that, I paid £420 for belt,pump,tensioner and auxbelts for my Superb, and that has to have the front end of the car taken off to do it, that was at VW btw.
