I don't have a formula and not sure if there is one. Each garage has their own different prices that might be either fair or highly inflated. In my experience I can recall the following:

The cheapest place in CH was 750 S.Fr.
Standard price in CH can vary 1000-1500 S.Fr.
The most expensive place in DE was 1200.
The cheapest place in DE was 420.
In Poland it would be 250 zloty and a free car wash

They missed a spot! Don't you see that round thingy on the top right corner on the first photo?! Why that wasn't repaired?!
That's PDC. I told them that I still needed it so they made sure it was intact.

In Lymington almost same repair costed me 120 last year. I wonder if any of you have a "formula" to calculate UK-CH price comparison, or I'm talking rubbish? I've made 3 random quotes comparison and the price is almost double in all 3 quotes for job from different nature.
The repair would have cost a lot more in London. Salaries are higher in CH & Germany than the UK.

I always use CHF 2 to , to get a rough idea, Swiss prices have not changed its in 20 years exchange rates have been as high as CHF 2.60 to . At that time things were cheaper with lower salaries in CH

That would have been many kms and much fuel to drive all the way to PL.

Why you try to reverse if you cannot do it?

I would seriously consider another solution i.e. sky roof with a rotary passanger seat in the middle. Unfortunately they don't have those options available in 2015 models as yet
