Two new top mounts from GSF - £40 (just under in fact), leaves £460 less the MOT cost ? Leaves how much for the labour???

That is a pretty impressive rip off

Be careful naming names on here though.

I was MODERATED shall we say for calling a scammer a scammer so dont be surprised if you are not aloud to bad mouth a shop either despite it been totally valid.
