Price for Timing belt replacement?

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how much I should pay for the above job?

I am in the Glasgow/West of Scotland area and I have had quotes ranging from 150 to 467.

Is the 150 too cheap?

Cheers

150 sounds a bit cheap, is this turbo or NA and is it just timing belt or part of a service, my full 90K service with belt came in at about 430 from memory.

They took 4.5hours for timing belt shift on my car. It was not how long they took. It was what was set as reasonable time from Subaru.

I would have been charged R10K for my 100 000km service (incl. cambelt) on my Sportwagon, so I traded it in for a Foz with over 100 000km on the clock - HA! Hang on... anyway, roughly 725 for you, hope this helps...
