    Hi guys, I need some advice.

    I have had a quote to fit an Eibach Coilover kit, a Whiteline Rear Anti-Roll bar, Camber adjustment front and rear with four wheel alignment (I supply all the parts needed), The front engine mount, and the front suspension bushes (the four on the wishbone). Also there is a locking wheel nut which needs drilling out, and the wheel balancing.

    I have been quoted just under £300 to do this by a decent garage who specialises in German cars.

    Is this too much?

    Thanks. PS - I am in Cambridge

    Edit - the price is £270ish. Is this ok?

    I thought about this! But I dont have any tools, and if I **** it up, I cant get into work!

    Plues he has the alignment system and all that so he can set it all up properly, I would be guessing.

    As long as he isn't taking me for a ride, I will try to get him down to £250 and get it all done.

    Should handle well afterwards
