Ive done my back in recently (falling down a fire escape flight of stairs!) an i have a hint of sciatica in the words of the doc,

My propshaft guibo on my e34 525 is in desperate need of replacement, and i dare'nt attempt it just in case! So im going to have to get it done at a garage! anybody know, so i dont get ripped off, roughly how much i should be looking at cost wise?

i know its difficult to accurately say but would you say £200 ish?

Thanks:thumbsup

The exhaust needs dropping, then heat shield, then centre prop mount and sometimes rear of gearbox needs dropping to get prop down off the front

Around £200 is about right including parts I would say, the part is nearly £80 from main dealers :frown

I was quoted £175+vat this morning so £200 looks almost bang on the money. Its being repaired as i type, would have liked to tackle it myself but ive got plenty more to do on it anyway.:thumbsup
