    Hi guys,

    made a quick search regarding coilovers typical price for them being set up but no luck :(
    most coilovers threads talked about stance and comparisons between brands!

    Anyways does anyone know what the typical price is for getting coilovers setup including the 4 wheel alignment ride height etc etc?
    I got a quote from a local garage for £400 seems alot?

    the coilovers I got are AP managed to get them at a good price from eBay :)
    picking them up Tuesday so can't wait!

    Picture of coilovers below:

    Will

    I changed mine myself, it's a pig of a job. £400 does seem steep IMO, I would look about as most garages can do the job, with respects to the different set ups, that I don't know if you need someone with no how or if any grease monkey can do it

    usually about 100 - 200 to fit as its probably about 2 - 3 hours labour + alignment at 70.. i would expect to pay about 250 max at my local specialist for fit and align.

    thanks for the quick reply mate,
    I'm terrible with working on the car myself, I always end up paying someone to do it,
    yeah I think I will ask around preferably recommended garages because I want it to be right first time and not pay again to fix someone else's mistakes I guess.

    cheers

    that sounds reasonable, over £100 cheaper than the original quote I have been given lol
    good thing I asked! Thanks mate will ask around :)

    Where abouts are you based willz? Try and look for a VW/Audi specialist or tuning company and don't be afraid to haggle a bit on price.

    There is a few places in bristol, Streetwise being one of them. There is also Indigo which is run by a mate of a mate that's in Tredegar which is closer to you.

    This is a very good writeup, surprised me how much work there is to it. I have seen quotes from certain places to fit coilovers for £120 so the time to do it must be dependant on how capable and experienced the garage is in undertaking this work.
