what are the average repair cost for a 1993 bentley brooklands?
Hello

If you were to get any work done at a Bentley Garage / dealers then be prepared for about $300 / hour labour rate

specialists are a lot cheaper about $150-200 per hour

Parts cost are also expensive

expect a typical service cost to be around $1000 to $1200 and major work to be about 3 times this

Now if you can locate an good independent specialist or do the work yourself then this will drop considerably
And I'd suggest getting in touch with the owners club and attending the next owners meeting so you can chat to owners and get some real life figures and experience's

What do parts cost such as a alternator radiator shocks muffler and are these parts easily availible as well as interior parts.

Hello Micheal

if you avoid buying the parts through the dealer network then there are big savings to be had

and service parts like you mention are reasonably priced - similar to what you'd pay for a Jaguar or mercedes

ie a rear muffler for this car is about $350
alternator is about $450

dampers if they have the active ride ( 1990 onwards) are costly at $800 each

and all these part are available

interior trim however is usually bespoke to each car so to get an exact match to original standard for something thats not a set of carpets

usually means employing an upholstery firm to repair / recover what you have
