    Its that including fitting ? If yes, then thats a bloody good price as last time i done a pair that was the price for Lemforder ones without fitting !?!!! I would get the Febi solid alloy sleeved bushes. The Lemforder ones are epoxi outers wich break if not pressed in properly ! You will also need press to pull/push the bushes in... I am selling such tool- look in my signature ! Expect a minimum of 80 quid labour as they are quite a pain to do...

    Bushes are cheap is labour that's killing ya ! Are you shure they done these before ? Last set i done took about 8 hours and ussualy the rear axle needs to com off- disconecting the brake lines, handbrake cable, abs sensors and shocks + unbolting the rear axle off the car is taking time + pressing the bushes in without the right tool is a nightmare. I would assume they have the propper KLAN press for them bushes but as that cost 600 quid they would have charged at least 3-4 times that ! Anyway, if you get it done for that price is a snip. Go for Febi solid ones, they feel stock and never break mate ! I would say Powerflex are easy to fit but they dont last as well as the rubber ones and need some seasonal maintenance (greassing for a start) + they make the car feel twitchy ! I would double check the quote first !

    I put genuine Vag ones in mine (helps as i have trade account with Tps) labour was 90 as ****e job

    I would stick with standard as if u start putting poly bushes every where then car will become bone shaker.. im running H&R coilovers,H&R Anti roll bars Forge Rear Tie Bars on mine and its spot on.

    I poly bushed one of my old Octy Vrs's ruined the drive big time..
