Price range

Hi all, I've spent the last day getting quotes for replacing the alternator in my Cooper SD, what I cannot fathom is the range of prices I've been quoted from the various garages. The Cheapest was 700 from Mini Oxford although there labour rate was 150 an hour. The most expensive was Wollaston Mini Northampton at 965 (137 an hour). I've decided to go down the independent specialist route which works out at a tad under 500 inc a courtesy car. Fingers crossed they are as good as their reviews MTex in Northampton.
