Harleston to Huntingdon, 73 miles - well worth the journey.

SOS automotive is there, and Serek, a forum member, is brilliant and will not rip you off - he will allow an OOF discount, too!  :y :y :y

Plugs are no more than 20, camcover gasket kit is 15. Changing both takes all of a half hour. Add another half hour to blast the breathers through. Which suggests an hourly rate of nearly 100 :o

I mention the camcover gaskets and breathers as that's most likely why you have the misfire in the first place.

Bosch coil pack will add another 70-100, but the labour cost is zero.  ;)

What people are saying is that main dealer prices are always sky-high and can be easily beaten by a good independent garage, like Serek at SOS automotive, who has acquired a great reputation for knowledge, workmanship and integrity amongst the experts on this forum.
Nothing wrong with being unable to do it yourself, and it would be a shame to get rid of a good car because of this.
Ring and speak to Serek. As Bigron said, it will be worth your while, and he speaks from practical experience, I believe.

As  "shyboy" said, I do have personal experience of Saint Serek's brilliant work:-

http://www.sos-automotive.com/

He is a very busy man, for obvious reasons, so if you ring him, be patient and keep trying - or send him a PM from the Forum. He is listed as Serek.

Feel, squeeze the foam below the scuttle. If it's soggy and drips when squeezed, you have found the most likely problem.
