    Prepare to be shocked!


    How much would you estimate the cost of the following work on a C220 CDi on a 52 plate undertaken at an indie garage in Brighton:


    Main service


    New front Pads


    New Rear Pads


    New Rear Discs


    3No New Glow plugs


    Front ball joints


    See who gets closest!

    Did you get a quote from a stealership first so you could make a comparison? Which service schedule was it?

    Although he might not appreciate having to take up the time to price the parts if there's no work to come from it.
