Hey Devonite

it all depends of engine type. In case of VW/Audit/Opel engines you also have to change the water pump. Together with the belt, you have to replace tensioners too. Make sure you take your car to the garage you can trust. there is great deal of bad mechanics out there who wont do it properly, which means if the belt splits, you have to rebuild engine. As per the price of the labour, all depends of which garage you take ur car to. Most of the are just rip off. I have paid 150EUR to get it done on VW Golf - that's together with the parts. Great garage and mechanics i can trust to.
