Unless you watched them do it the whole time (which I would demand for that price)and knew what they were doing throughout that is a very happy go lucky outlook indeed.

Yup, Gates kit runs right around $275 shpd from rockauto.
It's a fairly easy change. Plenty of room to work once the rad's out (better than a lot of transverse-mount 4cyl's).

If you want a shop or dealer to do it? Probably 750-1000.

Now, if you're looking at a 02 WRX with around 100k on it (assuming based on your timing belt question), I'd be more concerned with the valves and whether they've ever been adjusted...

a car that old, you'd probably want to check the head gasket also.
Infact, I wouldnt buy it for a daily driving unless Im rebuilding it.

EVERYTHING?!

Because replacing tensioners, idlers, waterpump, and coolant is standard procedure for a timing belt. What more could they have changed while they were down there? 1,200$ clams for a timing belt job isn't really anything to brag about :/

Just look up the DIYs and tackle it with a buddy on a weekend. As long as you spin the motor manually before you crank it over, follow torque specs, and dont turn the cams the wrong way it is almost impossible to hurt anything

I just did my timing belt 3 days ago. Changed the water pump, front crank seal/oil pump seal, thermostat, all tensioners/pulleys, and radiator. My radiator took a crap a week or so ago so I couldn't have asked for a better time for this to happen. The job took me and a friend like 6-7 hours but we got it done. We were new to the Subaru so we definitely took our time. One shop quote me $1200 for the timing belt job which prompted me to do it myself.
