Im tallking about the bog standard 4.2 V8 FSI and not the RS4 one though....You know the 344hp version. And if you think that the engine is the most expensive part of the car you are very sadly mistaken. It doesnt cost car manufacturers much to make the engine at all. Its the labour etc thats expensive.
We nearly had to have a turbo replaced on an old VW Sharan and it would cost about ?1300. There is no way in hell a whole (very advanced) engine is less than double that.
lol either you got ripped off or that was the price INCLUDING LABOUR!!!!!!
Labour often costs more than the parts themselves, and as a man working in construction I have persoanl experience with that. BTW even if that was including labour you got ripped off big time.
