https://www.eurocarparts.com/p/era-throttle-body-422441071  Plus 3 hrs labour. Plus the oil, air filter, oil filter, pollen filters, MOT and other bits and bobs. 536.73 in total. I've had the car 2 years and it's the first money I've spent on it, so not bad really - I have saved three times that in fuel costs since then  :thumbsup:
