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.
