A £134 for any repair is good. Even Indy garages are charging £80 plus VAT per hour on top of the parts. I think I would be pretty pleased if a problem that caused major driving difficulties was fixed for that amount.

When i done mine a couple of years ago i paid £50 for a genuine master cylinder. Took about an hour to fit. So i'd say £120 - £140 fitted at a garage now isn't unreasonable. My local indy charges £40 or £45 an hour i think.
