I don't think you could find a manor that small to fit inside the bonnet ... :D

Regarding the Citroen Service cost: 115 GBP ... that's including the work on removing and reinstalling the rack to the car, the DA Fluide, some extra work material, and 2 hours for some extra work (changing the plastic trims, and some other electrical bits) and 18 chrome wheel bolt caps

Well I guess you don't have the dreaded VAT at 20% over there - but even so that is just over an hours labour rate for Citroen here! so That's a very good rate you have.

Of course we do, we actually have a VAT of 25% ... that's included in the price I've written down

That's what a lot of people from Slovenia (our first western neighbor) are actually doing ... note that the price is Dealer regulated, independent garages of course have lower prices than them, but the price difference is not that big ... and, since I'm a regular, I get 30% off on the labor costs, so that too makes a difference

If you can teleport here to avoid transportation costs, be my guest ... I guess it would be a first at my Dealer's Garage that they do maintenance on a RHD X7 ... :D
