Arrow Advice on prices at my local Fiat dealer..

its costing me over £1000 to get a new head gasket, the head skimmed, new plugs, new HT leads, 2 front shocks, possibly a new Cat and top section (as i just replaced the centre + backbox), a full MOT and a few little jobs like seatbelts returning properly, that kinda crap... is this a TOTAL rip-off? i'd rather leave it with a fiat dealer and have some sort of come-back if anything else goes wrong... advice please guys...

If its any help I have had three front shock quotes of £285 Currie Motors -Fiat dealer, £175 local garage, £200 ATS. So thats part of your £1k!

Re: Advice on prices at my local Fiat dealer..

you are being ripped off, go to a good independent garage instead. you wont get any come-back if anything else goes wrong, they will just say its unrelated to the work they have done.

What's the breakdown of those costs?

My Fiat Dealership just quoted me something like £405 + VAT + Labour just for the CAT on my Punto MK2 - a look on teh net has found me a brand new CAT for about £47 inc VAT and Delivery and 2 year warranty
