E63 AMGS Engine Seizure

Our 16 year old Rav was recalled by Toyota so they could replace the drivers airbag , all done FOC within a week and took a couple of hours . They also checked it over , hoping no doubt to find some work to recommend, got a completely clean bill of health. Was also able to purchase a second remote key and get it programmed for about £260 from memory, none of this we are no longer able to supply one routine
 
I dont think he'll have a business long at those labour charges 🤣 ( 10 day's = £2000
 
Yes I do but at the end he does a cost report ,doesn't make a difference if it's his own car he still has to pay the guys that fixed it (he didn't fix it) no employee will say I'll fix it for £200 per day as you own the company 😳
 
£200 a day is about £52K a year (less tax)......employed (as in not self employed) mechanics I know don't earn anything like that.....so they might if he pays cash!!

The Google tells me that "The average car mechanic salary in the United Kingdom is £30,000 per year or £15.38 per hour."....so that's only about £123 for an 8 hour day.

Maybe he pays his employee £200 per day? That’s the way I would interpret it.

That’s what I thought, as I think I remember him saying it would have cost most people a lot more in labour. Cost to him is different to cost to customer of course.

Me too. You could argue there is an opportunity cost in the business if his employees are working on his personal car, but in cash terms I reckon it cost him £200 per day - and I doubt Namz is too fussed about the finer details of management accounting techniques.
I liked following this GT63S story and was amused at the fact Ashley Young just washed his hands of his brand new £130k motor having abused it to the point of destruction. Money no object.
Wonder how the OP is getting on?
 
A cheap repair that only cost 10p. I'm sure I've seen this car somewhere before? The number plate seems very familiar 🤔

Looking at the reaction of his staff, doesn't come across as being acted out but you never know 🙂

If he can sort out the map and a few other bits, reckon should make for a tidy profit.
 
Well acted to be sure, just another way to boost subscribers, that’s where the money is.
 
There's actually not that much profit init never in a million year's will he get £21k for a 100k miles c63 no mot not been on the road since April
Sold in sept 21 for £19k
 
There's actually no difference between the standard and the edition 125 only a badge on the dash
 
No badge on the dash at all.
