Thanks for the info. Yup, tomorrow I'm going to get quotes from some local independent shops. Dealership didn't really give me a formal estimate breakdown, but I will inquire about a full one with all the parts, pricings, etc.You need to have good independent shop give you a second opinion. Being in New York there shouldn't be a shortage of options and hopefully some other members on this board from your region can point you in the right direction.
All of my work, and it has been extensive, has been by an independent. I've not had my clutch done. I would never, ever, let a dealership work on my car. I know there are good dealer techs but dealerships as a whole can suck a .....
Edit: If you really want to get some good opinions get the estimate then scan and upload. Black out names, phones numbers, etc.

Edit: Flywheel as well?
Seems reasonable! I've heard however that shops will charge extra labor if you bring in your own parts--anybody have recommendations on buying my own parts vs. having them do it all?
