30 quid  :o :o :o It's a pants job one I never look forward to. I had one on a gsi which I couldn't shift the bolts holding the diff to the sub frame for toffee. Had to drop the whole sub frame in the end and apply heat. Whole bank holiday weekend wasted

quickest Ive done it was 3 to 4 hours and that was one a car which had had it changed already so no tight bolts, plus Id already done it so knew what was what, plus had 2 helpers.

So yeah 30 = win!

Looks like a real bitch.

Swapped one on a mates old 3 series, which was a lot easier than that looks.
