Car is under an awn warranty and my coilpacks are f**ked however the mechanic were my car is at has got a full claim from them for $1250 to instal split fires on all 6 cyclinders. He wants me to top up another 200 thought which brings the total to $1450 seems a bit steep since splitfires can be shipped to your door for $675? Any insight greatly appreciated.

absolute most he should be allowed to charge is an hour labour to fit them.... takes less than that to do...

Thats what i thought. Ill just confront him before i take the car back in cos i could do it my self no problems just wouldnt get the warranty cover. If hes not willing to drop it to $1250 so warranty covers it ill just use a different mechanic.

worse case 700 for coils + 100 labour to fit = 800 MAX,

the guy is taking the 3rd party warrenty company for a ride for 400 + bucks as it is
