200,065 VW Service

I picked up the car today. It went in back on the 11th.

It has hit the 200,000 mile mark, and got a thorough going over. Unfortunately there were a couple of things that added to the bill.

Requested service: Timing Belt, tensioner, water pump, auxiliary belts, water pump, major tune-up.

Found: Front and rear brakes and rotors, leak at valve cover gasket, small leak in radiator.

Parts total: $1644.43, Labor $1187.00, Sales Tax $244.21, Rental Car $284.01 Total: $3359.65

About $1300 more than I had thought it would cost all in the "found" stuff.
The radiator was the original, the valve cover gasket was last done at 100,000 miles.
