England 2012 Freelander 2 SD4 Sport Auto Barolo Black
Door latch costs

the front passenger door lock on my 2012 was playing up since I picked the car up. Sometimes it would unlock on single press of the key fob, sometimes double press and sometimes a couple more.
All the other locks opened on single press as I had set them to do.

Dealer has replaced the door latch mechanism, no arguments there. But ive just had a phone call from the warranty company that have provided the warranty through the dealer (Warranty Wise) advising me the claim has been authorised and did I want the money to pay the garage or did they pay the garage direct. Naturally I said just pay the garage which she was happy with.

The bill for the latch was £265 incl VAT which sounds a hell of a lot to me... how much does a new latch cost? around £60 ?

doesn't affect me or my wallet in any way, just curious on what the garages mark up is as they do seem to be a very good garage. 2012 '62' SD4 Auto Sport LE - Barolo black with black/ivory interior,

United Kingdom 2011 Freelander 2 TD4 GS Manual Santorini Black

I imagine there's at least an hour or two of labour involved there which won't be cheap. To be honest I'd be reasonably pleased if I was given that bill after having pretty much anything replaced on my car! Learned to drive in 2011.
Bought a Micra - great little car
"Upgraded" to Kia Sportage - hated it
Proper upgrade to FL2 TD4 GS 60 reg Facelift - tailgate paint issues, fuel gauge rewire, transfer box failure at 36k miles

yeh were sat in the showroom for about 2 hours as the external parts department they use had sent the wrong latch at first.

However it wasn't exactly a bad place to sit for 2 hours Very Happy

they have a track only Ferrari of some description which they store for a customer, along with about 5 other Ferrari's of different models, Bentley Continental GT, 2 mint Jaguar XJS (hard top and soft top), a V12 E type, Aston Martins, a couple of very nice Mercs AMG 63's, a new Honda NSX + more .........and that was just indoors. There was a whole raft of FFRR, RRS, D4,D5, Audi RS6 etc outside.

But the absolute beast was the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta 70th Anniversary limited edition, but this one is unique in that Niki Lauda has signed it as a 1/1 with various modfications to the standard 70th editions. The dealer paid £350k at auction for it and has already turned down a £1.1m offer ! 2012 '62' SD4 Auto Sport LE - Barolo black with black/ivory interior,
