    Presumably the normal price was £211.87 ?

    How much was the trade card, so what was the net saving?

    Well car is in this morning should be ready by 11-12 today 240 all in total I think is good also putting old parts in my boot so I can see how bad they are damaged or not after 82000 miles including water pump

    Will be interesting to see what the bearings are like as the new ones are so smooth

    I will post up my findings

    Vauxhall were going to charge nearly 410 quid for a cambelt and water pump change in my car I swiftly pulled out my trade card and said I will have the parts and so it my self the guy at the service desk was like it's an in loved job I said yes I know but it's not difficult and I will save 300 quid by not letting you monkeys do it lol

    My local dealers wanted £195 labour. Like you I got parts through the trade club including new aux belt. Getting fitted next week for £100. That's more like it. Interested to see your old belt when it's all done.
