There is nothing cheap about owning a Mini, but there is a world of difference between a garage that will give you a quick quote and one that takes a few days to get back to you with one that is twice as much. To add to that, Eurauto did this repair over the New Year's time frame taking in the car on the 31st, evaluating it and then replaced the part (which had to be ordered) on January 2nd before lunch. Their price was far lower, their work was fast and is warranted for three years. I could not ask for more. Thanks.
