    dealer costs

    I just got quoted on my 02 wrx as to the service needed to repair. Here it is let me know if these prices are legit. Thanks:

    Clutch plus install 1650.
    right front inner boot 150.
    Belt 65.
    Battery...
    Total=~2040.

    Does this seem like alot for the clutch install?


    Also If were to drop a 02 wrx 1.5" front and rear and place 18"wheels on it would there be a spacing problem?
    Thanks again.

    Sounds about normal for a dealership but a lot of that clutch cost is the actual oem clutch/throwout bearing/pressure plate, oem parts=expensive. All those things can be done by a reputable subaru tuner shop with cheaper (not necessarily less quality) higher performance parts.

    Yes, I used to work for the dealer up until a couple months ago, there labor rate was $125.00/hr and I work at Sunoco now at our labor rate is $80.00/hr, I would never have thought I would make almost double at a gas station compared to what I did at the dealer...haha
