    If all that's included - water pump, belt, tensioners, G12+ coolant and thermostat, with the amount of labor involved, I'd have said it's too cheap.

    If this turns out all good, then it could be worth some folks travelling a bit for a price like that! Me wonders if they know what they're getting themselves into!

    He sure did! If that was all done properly with the locking tool, I am just amazed at the labour rate you got it done for as I can't see how any shortcuts could be taken, so the hours must have just been cheap! Well done.
