It's not "out-of-this-world" as long as they are using genuine parts (that give a 3-4 yr warranty).
You also need a garage that knows what they are doing and have the software to set the timing correctly.

they come on the recommendation of a few garages I know that send jobs there so no worries on that score I just thought it was a tad hefty but hey ho ..... thanks for the reply 👍

Never seen 3-4yr warranty on belts & rollers etc, here in Italy 2 years if VW fits em, great when my pump belt was shredded at 25 months due to worn out new tensioner.

Was in France when this happened, weekend no parts, bodged with a worn belt, found a belt and tensioner in Luxembourg no warranty on parts unless they fitted them.
