Just booked my car in for it's 6yr/75k service, and I knew it'd be a dear job, but dealer has come back with a price for the "full" service (they apparently do 2 types) of £732
I added that i wanted the Gearbox oil swapping (my gearchange still isn't good enough!), but when he said the figure he did I nearly shat myself!
I asked him to break down the costings involved and some of the parts seem ridiculously expensive.
£150 for a fuel filter seems excessive- but apparently it's a bitch to do as it's partial drop of the fuel tank to do it, But the cost of the spark plugs seems waaaay over the odds too!?
As i remember it, the break down of the work involved is something like
Tappet clearances (check & adjust)
Gearbox oil change (which I added myself)
Have any of you guys had this service done at the dealer - but been charged a LOT LESS??, or is this about the going rate for such a service!
I was expecting £400'ish, but not £700+!!
Ok I can see how time consuming some of this will be, and it does seem like a fairly comprehensive service too, I just wasn't ready for the price quoted!
Gone ahead as I want to keep the FDSH, but sod me, Hope this kinda expense doesn't creep round too often!
