    £137 is about right to be honest. I paid £129 inc VAT last year for my Insignia's first service.

    sounds good to what I expected tbh!

    What you mean by no flushing? and should it be done for warranty purposes?

    £220 to £240 is about right for the second service.

    Have you thought of using a non VX garage? As long as the garage you use is vat reg'd and use good quality parts then your warranty is maintained.

    The law was changed to enable you to choose.

    for an extra £30 odd they offerred to flush the engine with flushing oil
    bit of overkill really
    not needed for warranty
