Just paid 754$ for new rocker cover gaskets, after 3 quotes from the same place, first was 280 , then said they didnt know it was turbo, had car there last year for timing belt ETC, then 2nd quote was 2 hours each side went up to 400$ then 3rd quote was for 740$ , then went to pick car up , and they inform me they broke a rocker cover bolt, i said havent u heard of a torque wrench and that they should be done down to 3ft lb, then got car back and got home smoke was pouring out from under bonnet, they didnt even degrease the oil that was spilt on the exhaust, sorry guys just felt like a rant
