    The injectors from Euro car parts are about £150 plus a new bolt and seal at £2.
    The labour time is 0.7 of an hour per injector.

    Are you sure it needs a new injector? Or is it just a leaking injector? If so it probably just needs a new injector seal and bolt. Labour will be 1-1.5 hours depending on how much carbon has built up and how much of a clean up it takes to get the the injector out.
