Servicing - Cam Belt Change

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have a 1998 LS400 MkIV - 49000 miles only but feel I should have a Cam Belt change also requires a B service - I will get quotes from 2 local franchises i.e Norwich and Cambridge and hope to take advantage of my Gold membership - but can any member recommend a non franchised Lexus specialist in East Anglia for comparison - I live near Wisbech Cambs

Also recommend a body shop - a minor shunt :o on the drivers door needs attention.

I can vouch for Roys - had my cambelt done there on my mk 1. Very pleased with their service and price.

Hi

Thanks for the info have booked into Roys inc. courtesy car - quoted less than half price than Lexus Cambridge saving over £500.00 will give an update after the deed is none

How much were you quoted at Lexus Cambridge? We've just had ours done on a 2000 Mkiv at Ipswich for 380.00

Hi

I was quoted £445 I'm not sure if this is + VAT 18months ago but decided against it the vehicle had only done 40,000 - 7 years old (Cost me £225 for "A" service) - Now at 49,000miles and 8 1/2 years old decided not to chance it any more

Roys quoted prices are £195 cam belt change £220 "B" Service £135 renew plugs excl. i.e. all plus VAT

The only quote I got this year I did'nt go any further down the line was £425 for a B Service from Lexus Cambridge I assume this would be + VAT

HI there

Just to say I was well pleased with Roy' Motors in Norwich

I've had the Timing Belt change "B" Service, iridium Spark Plugs renewed, front and rear brake pads which were found to need renewing on inspection - Total cost £773.00 inc VAT also a loan car for the day only a Toyota Carina but it made me appreciate the LS400 even more - as a matter of interest their hourly rate of 8 hours labour was quoted at £45.00 per hour.

I can't say the car was running any better after the service because it seems perfect prior to the visit to Roys - I estimate if I had gone to a franchised dealer I would have been looking at a bill for £1300 - £1400 plus any other bits and pieces they may have found as extras.
