If they would have provided ALL the parts, OEM parts at that, then it might've
been justifiable but 550.00 seems a bit steep for a water pump that took me 45 minutes to do on my cousins 95...
What is the shop's labor rate and how many hours they tell you it'd be?
Before I worked on my cars, the day after buying my 3rd gen in 2005 I took it to the shop to have the following things done and I only paid $450
for parts AND labor and 50,000 miles/5 years later I'm getting close for that whole job again but I'm doing it myself this time.
