    Question How much should an interim service cost on a 2.8 Signum???

    Well well well... just thought I would nosey about and see how much everyone paid for their last interim service. Being out in Germany I went to Opel. The only thing I needed was the oil and filter change as all the wipers, etc etc have been done by me (plus the spark plugs )

    Being in the Forces abroad we are entitled to 'tax free' shopping so thats exactly how I played it.

    The garage reciept shows:

    Oil Change
    Filter
    O-ring
    1 amount of Windscreen Washer (was full! as I filled it up before I left but only charge 79 cents)
    Labour

    Total came to 199.40 euros! This comes to 171 GBP tax free (and its 19% here)

    Surely this is a joke? Everyone else paying this much back on home soil?

    Already had major problems with the customer service and prices over here! So... Last stamp in the book at 56k on the clock and as a qualified mechanic I will be buying my own stamp and doing it myself lol! What a waste of money!!!

    Yours sounds a little high mate tbh. A full service is only £190 at my local stealers.

    Tell me about it! Its ridiculous! Last year I had a 'main service' which again due to me replacing the cabin filters, having a K&N etc and doing most stuff myself... was the above plus the brake fluid as I fitted new discs and pads... cost me 260 euros tax free lol! 60 euros for some brake fluid... I might have to complain to GM for the 3rd time this year lol
