Subaru Dealer "Ouch"

I received a letter regarding a change in hands for our local Subaru Garage from Conders to MotoAutotype (something along those lines). Thought would give them a chance to quote me on the 30k, £540. I explained that I had already agreed on £320 using Genuine Subaru Parts and my choice of oil with a local Specialist. £540 is just obscene IMHO. I understand overheads etc are higher but cant see how they expect to compete..

Definitely agree with you on that. The independent specialist that I have used is interested in the cars and shows passion for them.
