January 09, 2015

My Mini Cooper had the starter die. This was just a basic parts swap, not terribly difficult to diagnose or perform. I was told it would be 2 days to do the job (happy) & would be $593 (before tax). I was told it would be a genuine Mini part, it turned out to be a rebuilt Bosch unit. Fine, but OE is not the same as OEM. At least it wasn't aftermarket. I was charged $307 for the part and $286 labor($104/hr @2.75 hrs). The cost (markup) on the part was fair (~15% from online) but the labor is high. AutoMD.com estimates ~2.5 hrs for the job and the avg independent shop in my area is ~$85-$90/hr, giving a range of $230-$265 for labor on this job. Total estimate on AutoMD ranged from $505-$664, so Faber is on the mid/high side.

Pros: fast service. Fair parts cost (~15% markup). Warranty
Cons : Not clear on OE vs OEM parts. High labor rate for the area ($104/hr), excessive labor time valuation (+0.25hr over estimates). Mid-high total job cost.

Love these guys, honest and will try and try to fix your car. If they fixed it and the problem happens again they will come and tow for FREE and look at the car again. I have brought many cars to this shop since 1994. They are in business since 1958
