Hi all,

Usually get my services at Lookers Birmingham and pay roughly £200.

Am currently staying in Sussex so got a quote from Eastbourne Vauxhall who quoted £460!!

From what I've read the 8th service is just air filter/oil change and replacing key fob battery-am I missing something here or are they just rip off merchants?

That's high, as this is the 8th one the Amp is out of the Voltec Warranty I think, I believe it expires on the 8th anniversary of the original registration. Ask a Local Hevra garage to quote

I just questioned a quote for a 3 year service eplan for years 6, 7 and 8, which was much more expensive than the previous three years. Answer was

"Your first 3 services were for a 3rd, 4th and 5th service, essentially two small services and one large. We have now quoted for years 6, 7+ 8 so two large services and one small."

Arnold Clark, Stretford, Manchester, 23/7/20
8th Service £136.80
Oil8 £34.65
Oil Filter £4.02
Pollen Filter £15.97
Air Filter £48.02
DRN Plug Gasket £5.65
Screen Wash Bucket £0.37
Labour £171.45
VAT £47.82

Grand Total £286.91

If anyone is interested they suggested spark plugs needed changing every 4 years £25 each.
They now realise they didn't change the HV Coolant Fluid at fifth service £300.
Also brake fluid should be changed every 2 years £100

So basically I save d £500 that day.
