Suggested workshops in AKL
« on: January 16, 2020, 07:52:01 am »
Hi all,

I have a 2011 GTI that I'd like to get the tensioner/chain replaced with the updated design. I've had a couple of quotes that seem very high ($3600+GST) - I was wondering if anyone knows somewhere reputable that can perform the work at a fair price?

Thanks all!

I have no idea what a ‘fair price’ is for that work but Brodie European have always served me well. Some jobs tend to be eye wateringly expensive.

Good lord, $3600!! The OEM chain is around $200 and the tensioner is around $70. So are they saying the other $3300 is labour?

John (vert1) on has done many of them, based in Henderson.

He knows his stuff. I think from memory he's around half that price for the same job.
