Pricing for a clutch replacement
I am in need of getting my clutch replaced. I have called the two local places I usually deal with. One is an independent european speciality garage, the other the dealership. Neither has done any major work to my car, I mostly buy parts from them both.
They are both located here in Albuquerque. The independent is Haans Wittler's automotive. They quoted me $1200, parts and labor for the job.
The other is my local BMW dealership, Sandia BMW, they quoted 1400 for the job.
Does this seem like the going rate for a clutch replacement? I just asked for a quick quote from each place. I dont imagine this includes a flywheel if it needs it. Has anyone ever haggled the pricing on repairs? The dealership has a special on parts and service of 20% off for cars '99 and older. I wonder if they would extend this deal to my '01.
