Congrats on the new mod.

How much did it cost for the install ?

Was it just for labor ?

My car was in for service to have new hatch shocks installed and they expected a problem with my tranny, long story short, it ended up not being my transmission. Since the Getrag is a non service item, a bearing was broke in the process of the intial tearing apart. Hence my service dept was going to have a new tranny ordered for my car. My husband and I decided that since nothing was wrong in the first place with my current tranny. That we would go ahead and pay out of our pocket for new bearings and ask for a labor rate on the install of the Quaife. Since the transmission was torn apart already, why not? After some negotiating and approval, the Quaife was installed for a really great going labor rate. If you all dont mind I would like to keep the amount to myself, out of respect of my dealer service dept. But we are now responsible if any damage occurs to our transmission due from the new install. Which happens to be the same with all of the other aftermarket parts I have on my car.
