"Maintained regardless of cost." - Pheweeeee

So, my Y reg 01 406 hdi 90 rapier HDi went it for the following :-

Timing belt kit
Waterpump
Aux Belt
Full service - Oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter
Antifreeze flush and replacement
Clutch slave cylinder
New rear back box.
MOT
£880 all in. More than I paid for the car lol.

Should be right for a few years yet at 117000 miles.

Sounds expensive to me, lets look at my Welly_Estimator costings (costs including labour):

Timing belt kit 260.00
Waterpump 35.00
Aux Belt 30.00
Full service - Oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter 70.00
Antifreeze flush and replacement 50.00
Clutch slave cylinder 90.00??
New rear back box. 65.00
MOT 50.00

Total = £650.00, am I guessing too low?
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 a bit pampered
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple

Probably not, I don't know, did think it was a little expensive, they quoted me £350 for the timing belt doing, so they probably were a little expensive. Does sound and run nice and smooth now. Bloody ought to as well lol
