bushings were some 45 gbp for the pair (got em from the uk)
tie rods 57 euros each
labour 160 euros
alignment 60 euros
(plus 300 for starter +install back in dec)
I spend more on the car than on myself....hahahah
Glad it's now sorted, omodos.

Yes, these old girls certainly have a healthy appetite for parts! Mine's currently waiting on a new engine viscous fan clutch and she's nearing another oil service.

I told my family that any birthday and Christmas presents for me would have to be E53 parts.... and my wife took me seriously, so guess what I'm getting for my birthday....
