3rd year service and first MOT

£155 at the Honda main dealership. Do people think that's a good price? They said originally that the service is something like £195 and £54 for the MOT.

Yes that is good for a main dealer, does that include VAT though? they often quote prices then add that on afterwards.

What's the betting they will tell you will need new pads and disks?

Yeah, that's a really good price, I paid £218 for mine.

Just make sure you check what the service actually covers. My local dealer initially offered me a cheaper service and it wasn't until I questioned it that I was offered the full "Honda" service. I'm fairly sure that the one at ~£150 didn't service everything as per the manual/service schedule. Odd, I know. Either that or I was fleeced!

Yeah it will be plus vat to start with. They probably will say pads and discs but I checked them not too long back and replaced the pads myself. Lol. They asked me if I wanted a brake fluid change as well for £40 so I said I will do it myself thanks. I'm guessing it will just be oil and filter change really on this service then on the type r's third year?

Brake fluid is hygroscopic which means it absorbs water, should be changed occasionally to keep the water content to a minimum as it boils at a lower temperature than brake fluid. Porsche recommend its changed every two years to keep your brakes at peak efficiency. Otherwise a basic service is ok for the stamp and replace anything else yourself.

How many miles has it done? Tappets should be checked and adjusted every 25k miles.

I am paying 240 today, I called around a few dealers and they all seemed about this price

I am going to check the service schedule against what they have done though when I pick it up to make sure I have had new brake fluid!

Eco display
Also make sure they put fully synthetic oil in the engine as I found out for the first two years of it's life it wasn't getting it. Car uses a lot less oil now
