    well 140-50 = 90 which is like 2 hours labour.

    Does it really take that long to swap it?

    Pretty sure the alternator is in the way, never worked on mine, so not sure how hard to do.

    I would say that price is Ok. I paid a lot more at VW to have the same job done on our 1.8T and our car did of need the alternator removing.

    Did my stat the other day, took about 2.5hrs. Like with most things taking it apart is the worst bit, getting it back together took lees than an hour I'd say. Part incl. coolant was about 46 from audi.
