    Any 'quote' web site? 8th Sep 17 at 1:48 PM
    If I google the above, will it take me to a web site for local mechanical quotes?
    I recall something mentioned in another thread. I have been quoted £120 plus parts, but he has broken his hand; so I am now looking for an alternative.
    The work is a timing belt and dephaser pulley on a Renault Magane.

    The one that's advertised on the radio is MyCarNeedsA.com. No idea if it's good, bad or indifferent though.

    We're waiting for our Service Providers to get back to us, and we hope to have quotes for you soon...

    You’ve received a new quote from Alba Tyres - Team Protyre


    £887.98

    For Timing Belt and Water Pump
    I am guessing they just thought of a number, and then doubled it, lol
