I dropped off my car to get a timing belt and rear cam seal replaced. i purchased the t-belt water pump valve cover front and rear cam seals seperate. he said it would be about 5 hours total. he then called the next morning and said the auto tensioner was bad and had to be ordered; cost 140 dollars! so i said ok if it's bad. then i go to check on the progress and he says you also needed new p/s belts and a serpitine belt. he sahowed it to me and it was cracked all the way across. long story short total bill for everything was 1057 dollars after exchange before the VAT and somewhere in the area of 889 dollars after VAT. I Usally get kissed be fore i get f***ed! sometimes i hate living in Germany

Yeah man, that isn't good, however, you live in Germany(as you said), and thus, I can't really comment on your price, because it may just be more expensive where you live.

Sorry to sound stupid, but what is "VAT"?
