Smile Got my Prodrive Pack

Got my prodrive pack fitted today!
Car is pretty different to drive now, and has a great 'subaru burble' to it now.

Only thing was when the guy from the garage phoned me to let me know it was ready he told me it would be 2,375 in total !!
Aparently it costs the garage 1550 to buy the pack from prodrive, and it took them 7 hours labour to fit it, so they wanted me to pay for labour on top of it.

Luckily I remembered it was quoted on the subaru website as 1700 INCLUDING fitting and vat, so after pointing that out to the sales manager & service team, it was corrected to the right price. Was panicking for a while though!

Now to try and flog the old parts on e-bay...
