  1. if £35 an hour is perfectly reasonable then im gonna become a mechanic havent spoken to my friend for a few days so not sure what the £7.50 was for i know he opted for the luk clutch this time has he had the clutched replaced 3 year ago with a cheaper make and only did 17 thousand miles in 3 years before it was knackered it was a corsa c 2006 that he has i had my pads and disks replaced 2 year ago and was charged £40 another friend of mine had a clutch put in a ford transit last year and was charged £120
  2. a friend of mine recently had some work done on his vehicle by a mobile mechanic who works from home he took the vehicle to him and supplied all the parts needed new clutch and brake pads and disks for the front he was charged £400 and £7,50 (£35per hour) for labour is this reasonable has it seems quite high to me i would say 1 hour for the front disks and pads and 4 hour for the clutch which totals £175 so i cant understand why he charged him so much even if you add an hour or 2 for whatever reason its still very expensive he was in a rush and needed his vehicle for work so paid it just wondered what other people would make of this is it correct or not ?

  9. green uns long time ago that pal bet petrol was only 50 to 60p a litre back then also you said your mate worked there recently and was delivering house to house ---------- Post added 17-08-2016 at 18:05 ---------- Also most people on here seem to be always on the stars back for 1 thing or another its like they want to see lots of people out of work the sheffield star has been around a long time and i hope it continues more people should support it its our local paper i admit it is expensive at 70p but i reckon if they were selling a lot more copies the price wouldnt have got that high and a lot of the older generation prefer a proper paper to read rather than messing around online
