'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.
