Yeah think I was quoted around the $300 mark from Holden.
want to swap mine out too.
I'm pretty sure it looks new (like within the last couple years), but has issues starting so think I'll change it out at some stage in the hope that it fixes it.

what my issue is.. sometimes the car wont start after long drives or whilst music is playing in my car without the car running or even if the headlights are on for like 20 mins.

my car wouldnt start this morning after i just got to work after an hour long drive, tried starting it to go to the servo and it didnt start.... 4 hours later(after it cooled down) it started 1st go. does yours do that?? if so, new started motor it is

Mine sometimes has trouble starting after a long drive etc/ when it's warm.

Started off as a really slow chugging turn over, and has turned into not actually firing and just turning over slowly and then not going.
Quite often have to throttle on and off to kick start it.
But yeah similar symptoms.
