'front exhaust' by this i would presume the manifold/downpipe which costs about £70-£100 plus fitting, new front tyre about £50, front brake pads will be about £30 plus fitting, but im not sure what you mean by rear suspension mouldings? (my prices are for aftermarket parts - not genuine)

oh, welcome to the forum :)

I just assumed your car is a mk1 focus estate?

im not familiar with estates but i cant think of any suspensions mounts on the rear...perhaps they mean bushes? these are cheap but its the labour that kills its. bushes can probably be bought for 30 but the rear subframe/axle assembly has to be removed from the car as far as i know

was it a ford dealer or independent that quoted you for the work?

do you know your serial number and model number of the radio/cd player?

to get the serial number you will need to remove the radio. if you can do that then i will get you the code.

700 jez thats a lot, where abouts in the uk are you? maybe somebody on here can help out at a fraction of that, as said above regarding your radio code, slide the radio out and get the serial number (which you'd need to do if you went to a ford garage anyway or they'll take the radio out for you at an extra cost) and you'll get the code on here.
