FN2 75k service, advice

Hi,


Just wanted some guidance and advice about prices and what to get done for the 75k service. These prices are from Glyn Hopkin Romford. Car is now 7 years old.
Prices are including VAT and labour.


Oil change and filter (£185) (Seems a bit rich!? so may do myself)
Gear box oil change (£85)
Spark plugs (£180)
Valve clearance (£100)
Total - £550


Other things that I probs wont get but they offered-
Air filter (£50)
Pollen filter (£50)
Brake fluid (£65) (brake lines and fluid changed only a couple of years ago, so probs doesn't need to be done again?)
Fuel filter (£160)


As I say, I would be grateful for any advice on what is really worth doing. Are there any prices that stand out? And should I get my fuel filter done or not?
Also does anyone have any recommended garages in the Romford area?


Thanks in advance for your help

Those prices sound exactly what my dealer in Canterbury quote me me around that time.
If they havenít been done, brake fluid, plugs, gear oil defo worth getting done based on that age/mileage.

I donít have any free time otherwise Iíd do the services myself but the prices above are what I was quoted.

My same dealer this tried quoting me £710 for my FN2 10 year service!!!!
That includes coolant change and all of the above but £160 for valve clearance check instead!
Not a chance Iím paying anywhere close to that.

Fuel filter is a PITA so id definitely get them to do it at that price, gear box oil can be a flaff due to the whole undertray needing to be removed, although 2lt of MT3 is only about £22. £180 for spark plug change is ridicules tbh, considering NGK iridium's can be had for £40. The valve clearance price seems standard pricing, but tbh a reasonable price. Air filter from honda only £25 and dead easy to change yourself too, as is the pollen filter.

The £185 is for the service, basically oil and filter change but they do check other items too. But if you stick Honda oil or Castrol as recommended in with Genuine filter that is approx £100 so only £85 extra for the extra checks and not having the hassle of getting under the car to do the change.
If your MOT is due at the same time, with a bit of discussion they will do it half price for you. which means service and MOT for £200 as apposed to 185 + 55 = 240 which to me means only £45 for them to do the service and MOT after consumables.

valve clearance is a good price as it's a job and half and you need to know what you're doing and when.

Spark plus is a bit of a joke really, I'd do them myself and will be.

Gearbox oil may be worth them doing too, as mentioned full under-tray off (unless you can devise a draining device) and about £20 for oil making it £65 for them to have the hassle of being under the car,

Air filter - do yourself, same as the pollen filter, Those prices are a joke too.

Fuel filter, I'd get them to do it as its a PITA and who likes messing with fuel.

Brake fluid is easy enough if you buy an ezibleed kit, but then that's the price of the kit £20 and the fluid another £20 so again worth having them do it, but ask them not to spill brake fluid on anything especially the rocker cover!

Hope that helps but just MHO

Our car's the 1.8 auto, and apart from the fuel filter and brake fluid, have done the lot myself. Actually kind of enjoyed doing the valve clearances (most were a couple of 'thou slack).

Everything's on you tube, so I would say anyone reasonably mechanically minded would'nt have any trouble for example with the valve checks.

Alright, thanks for all the responses, really helpful. Decided that I will do the oil and filter changes myself, and ill do the spark plugs too. The fuel filter and gear box oil ill let them do at they look too much of a PITA.


Quick question regarding spark plugs, which do you recommend? After a bit of digging, the NGK IFR7G-11KS seem to be the recommended ones?

That's the ones. Worth getting the Halfords magnetic plug socket, the plugs sit quite deep. Gearbox fluid change is as easy as the oil and filter change.

Ok cool, thanks for that. Really silly question, but I have the HKS RSK intake, I assume that I will still need the normal stock air filter, or does adding this kit change the air filter also?

The RSK has a mushroom foam filter, completely different to the stock panel filter

No worries. Here's when I had my HKS RSK in my Fn2, the oem airbox is totally removed.

Plugs are fairly cheap to buy but very labour intensive to fit as very hard to get at unlike the 1.8 which I changed myself
