Eeeek!

They quoted 600 for the STRIPDOWN on the Stilo. It would have been the same again plus probably 25% in parts for the rebuild.

Luckily I found a guy who sorted it plus full testing (head surface situation and pressure tests) for just shy of 600, bbut that included brake work and replacement of the starter motor Id killed.

Unreliable ****e. If I was responsible for that starter's design Id have taken voluntary severance ages ago as its shocking!
