Expensive dealership

I have just had a quote from my local renault dealership for a large amount of work as a result of my annual service which has come to £1000. Looking at the bill the majority of this is driven by the massive £85 per hour labour charge! I have always treid to go through dealerships so the carhas a full service history but this is now getting insane.

They have quoted for 3 more pieces of work to be done and I am refusing to go through them again becuase of the cost.
Can anyone recommend a garage that isnt quote so expensive but reliable to complete the remaining work? Ideally it would be in the Luton ,Harpenden area but I can get to Nottingham if needs be.
Currently in em's garage:
rebault clio expression 1.4 diesel

Hi Em

I'd suggest you sift your way through (or better still use the search facility) on this thread http://www.renaultforums.co.uk/gener...hlight=dealers

All main dealers are well known for their extortionate hourly rates. Depending on where you live you may well find someone who specialises in Renaults, but isn't affiliated to them and can therefore keep prices much more reasonable.

Is there any chance you could list what work is required? Maybe someone can advise if you could possibly do some of the work yourself to keep costs down.
