    Vx updates should be free!.. But they normally like the car in having other work in to be done at the same time otherwise they try to charge

    I believe you only get free updates whilst the car is in for a service.

    as part of routine services most main dealers SHOULD check the vehicle for software updates..... 99.9% of the time this does not occur ....this then means that dependant of the issue that their updating manufacturers relsease NON SAFTEY related recalls and these are completed when the car goes in for its service ...there classified as field service actions or customer satistfaction enhancements

    http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/vaux/pages...cing/index.jsp Third line from the bottom of that page. What is the issue with the car? Print that page and take it to them and ask them to carry out a check to see if any software is needing updated as it wasnt carried out when they serviced it.
