They changed both bushes in 2 hours, charging 92.00 for labour, plus my 28 for the parts

Total bill 120 inclusive of everything

It is also worth noting, that the driver side boot had slipped off, so I asked if they could take a look at it, and they discovered it was not split, pushed it back into place and replaced the plastic click that holds it on with a metal one, and they did that for free.

I for one am going back to them again.

They are the same people that did my intercooler, purchased it online for 118 inclusive, and they charged me 2 hours labour to fit it.

A very good small family run garage where customers def come first.
That's the best sort of place. I've recently found one and I'm hoping they'll keep me happy for a while. Fixed a rattling exhaust effectively for free, then did a weld repair on it when it later broke. Kwik Fit and the like wouldn't go near a welder. Very reasonable prices. Would consider getting them to refurb the turbo , or quote for it at least
