Thanks Sailor, i did and thats why i was surprised ... the labor quotes i got were much higher.
Isn't there a "shortcut" method by dropping the oil pan? That might explain the difference in labor quotes. If the shop knows enough about the shortcut, they are probably pretty familiar with the M5 and rod bearing replacements.
