    That seems very expensive. Have you called any other dealers to check the price?

    yes phoned 2 dealers and they were same price, they said the thermostats were £45 and £145 and they took my reg number to check my engine type and they rang me back to say car came up as needing the dearer one,
    has anyone bought thermostat recently for 1.8 sri 2006? or does anyone know the price ? thanks
