    Water pump
    All the filters
    All the fluids
    All the belts

    Probably lookin at £350 in parts if you did it yourself.
    Depends how much your time (and the stamp in the book) is worth to you.

    How much??

    We will be extremely competitive on servicing once we open the workshop in a few weeks (eventually)

    The price in the OP is good if it includes everything.

    Shame I'm in Birmingham then

    This is what my local dealer quoted. I'm sure they make it up off the top of their heads. The first quote page he gave me said £829.67, I asked him if it included an engine refurb, he laughed then said ill see what i can do...like he did me a favour with the £545 quote

    Try Midland VW in Cannock for a price too

    If that prices includes cambelt, roller, tensioner etc then its very good
