yes its too much about 100-150 + vat for an 8v 150-200 + vat for a 16v, water pump + new coolant should be done at the same time

As Dave says -- does depend on where you are though. Anyone living in London will pay OTT.

Easy enough DIY job, guides in Punto section, Cento/Seicento section.

I recon a 10 year old could do it..

Well i'm 32, but i've never thought about doing it myself...
i live in Bristol by the way so if I can't do it myself i will have to shop around.
