Yes, and IMO shop "A" did not go over the top with repairs...In fact, water pump might be good on that list too! The prices are not bad. Fact is most shops will get upset if you try to find your own parts; yes, you have the right to save a few bucks, but if your car is sitting on the hoist waiting for Ebay parts, they wont charge you storage!

If you found a good mechanic at shop "B", thats what counts!
