    surely the price they quoted you (if any) should stand
    i thought garages would not carry out any work without getting approval from the customer

    not your fault if THEY sheared a bolt off
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    I've been quoted 800-900 to do clutch and CSC on mine, that's because it's a full day

    so when a job is quicker than book time they charge less ? no way, they should charge book time. They probably had tightened the nut to shear it anyway.
