Can someone explain to me why having phoned two garages and explained the symptoms (sudden loss of compression in cylinders 3 and 4) of my dead nova that I have been quoted such huge figures?
Local Vaux dealer £930incl VAT
Happy Chappy round the corner "your looking about between 600 and 1000 for that mate"
I personally thought sod that I will do it myself.
45 minutes to carefully strip down the engine. (Already done that now)
£38.69 for parts
and I am guessing about 1 hour to put it back together.
So with the money that I will have saved that will leave me enough money left over to buy another car and take my girlfriend out for a nice meal.
Garages are a right rip off.
