Mechanics in Toronto

I need to change the power steering pump in my car. I went to euromotors on highway 7 and they said its gonna be well over 1000 dollars. Its a big time ripoff since i can get a used pump for $150ish.
I need to find a good mechanic for my car. hola if u guys know some1 who knows his stuff and wont screw over people or even have low labor rate per hour (not 120/hr for looking at ur car).

yea those guys were being b*tc*es about everything. They tried to scare me and almost convinced me that if i dont change it right now my entire car is gonna fall apart right away.

btw.. thanks for the bimmersport location. I picked up the pump for 150 and they said they'll install it for 90 bucks with change of fluid.

i don't know about that shop you mentioned, but what you also have to realize is that they didn't quote you for a USED Power steering pump. They quoted you for a NEW one. You found a used one for 150 and that is good for you, but if you went to BMW and bought a NEW pump, then you wouldn't have bought it for $150. I checked RealOem and it states that your pump costs 530+core USD...and since we know that prices in canada are alot higher than what the US prices are, it does not seem unreasonable to be quoted around a grand for that part installed. Now can a better price be done for a new pump, of course, but if you owned a business and someone walked in the door for the first time and had no loyalty to your business, would you be inclined to give them a discount??? Probably not.

Your making it sound that they are charging you 1000 for a used part that you bought for 150, which is not the case. As for their tactics, well, that is just bad business.
