    If you can get it done through a friend or family member, go for it.... Much less likely to get any "nasty" surprise additions to the bill.

    Charles Warner in Lincoln are expensive and not very good.

    In that area Twells of Billinghay are the best dealer, they will also price match. I had my last minor service done there on my 3.0, was gonna go independent but when I phoned and asked for a price they asked what I had been quoted so I said £120 they said £110. They even picked my car up at house drove it to garage, serviced it and dropped it off at night. I asked the driver if I should pay him and he said "nah just phone and pay tomorrow".

    And when I had my MOT last week the tester asked me if I had just had my car serviced because all brake lines had been freshly greased and he had to give me an advisory as he wasn't allowed to remove it too check em The doors/bonnet catches etc had all been greased as well, and the wheels bolts had been copper greased. So I reckon they as a dealership can be recommended.
