    $420 + GST sound reasonable to source a new front shock + fit for an 04 Corolla?

    Just one shock? O_o I would imagine replacing at least a pair would be the way to go.

    I'll be replacing the pair but it would still work out at $840 + GST with this shop. Trying to sort a few other quotes.

    That is absolute robbery. I did shocks on my 02 Corolla, and they were cheap as chips from Toyota, and I don't recall anything particularly complex in doing the front shocks. With the disclaimer that I haven't looked at one of those Corollas in three or so years.

    Also, no, don't even contemplate doing one shock, and not the other.

    What area are you in david522? someone here will probably be able to recommend a reputable non-gorging garage to help you out.

    Expensive as ****. I replaced shocks springs and mounts on all four corners for around $800 in the same car.

    I've recommended Chris at Your Neighbourhood Mechanic to a few people and have only had great dealings with him. Honest and well priced.

    Went up my favourite bit of gravel road (because it's brutally steep, twisty, technical, and I've done it so many times that I actually know it well). Did it four times driving, and four times navigating in a BMW 550i .... yup, V12 BMW gravel car ... all wheelspin, all the time. He's in third and fourth just spinning the back wheels, and I'm in first or second in the Corolla. It is so mental. He gets two events maximum out of his rear tyres. I get two *years* minimum out of a set of gravel tyres.



    Corolla, driving



    BMW, navigating. I believe that the BMW is running an M3 gearbox, but don't quote me on that BMW fanatics.

    The giggle is, in my practice run in the Corolla (during which I caught the car in front of me on the road), I'm faster than the fastest time in the BMW.



    From about 5:40 you can see the car ahead of me, and I complete the run right behind them. They literally didn't know I was there.

    Note though, that it was a new driver to gravel I was catching. So while it may seem ridiculous that that I caught a car with a two minute gap, she was basically just touring up the hill. She went 50 seconds faster than that during the actual event. So while my practice run was very fast for a practice run, I am by no means a very fast driver.

    Car serviced thru MB dealer in New Market, everything went ok aside from a couple of advisables that I knew about prior any who. The only surprise was a ****ing sidewall puncher in the rear right tire which failed the cars wof as you'd expect, the car has different tyres from end to end and I was going to change them for a full set of something at a later date. Cars booked in today for a full set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4's, which aren't cheap for a E55 but **** it I love nothing more than decent tyres.

    Also MB dealers have MB branded coffee lul

    To go with MB condom and lube?

    Had my first Annual Warranty Service of my BMW 330i M-Sport at Botany Motor Worx. All up it cost $432.50, including oil change. Not as bad as I expected. He told me the spark plugs will need changing next year at the cost of $38 each + labour, so at least I am forewarned.

    They gave me this as a loaner - a 1997 BMW 318Ti
