    Go nowhere near them after they wanted to charge me £65 + vat to remove a locking wheel nut.
    Local garage did it for £10, and fixed the puncture all in

    SWEET JESUS! Just read that....

    To the OP - was is booked for a 'service' or just the oil etc change? If it was a service that just required those bits changing, then your book should be stamped. If you just asked for those jobs doing, then I would have thought you wouldn't get the book stamped.

    Maybe I'm missing the point...?

    Vehicle : VXR8 6.0 muscle SRI ESTATE XP1

    Trim : VXR/ SRI ESTATE CDTI XP1

    Engine : 6.0 V8 Thunder

    Year : 2008

    main dealers (stealers) are con artists, a friend of mine brought her vauxhall astra twintop brand new from a dealership near me, she had it serviced by them every year, and last year she asked me to do it for her as the car had reached 3 years old. she took it to them for its mot where it failed !!!! this car is 3 years old has not even done 12 thousand miles and it failed?!!!! they said it needed discs and pads all round ,exhaust was corroded and drop links needed replacing. her bill was to be just shy of a grand.
    i took the car away and was quite shocked at what i found.
    the oil filter was rusty, the pollon filter was blocked,
    the air filter was the worst ive ever seen,
    the oil was black as black as can be,
    and they had charged her nearly £200 for its first service
    nearly £400 for its 2nd service
    and for what they hadnt even touched it!!
    needless to say i totally serviced it replacing every service item
    took it to a different mot station where the car passed not even one advicsory
    stealers rip off mercahants!!!
    VXR IS FOR LIFE NOT JUST FOR THRILLS !

    Yeh it was just oil & filter change , and full gearbox fluid change, as I had already done air filter and fuel filter.
    But i paid there full labour charges, so as I see it they should of ticked oil & filter boxes and stamped the book. Otherwise why pay their costs?

    Vehicle : Saab 9-3 Aero

    Trim : Aero

    Engine : 2.8 Turbo V6

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 62000

    Default

    I asked my local dealers if they would stamp the book if I had a service yearly (inc oil change) and an oil/filter change 6 monthly. They said you will only get a stamp for a service, but there is a page in your book for additional oil changes and they would record it there as its not a service just an oil change.

    I did however reply well thats all you do in a intrim service, oh yeah you also give us a few sheets of a4 paper with traffic lights on with all the faults you need to repair lol......Thats why my 6 monthly oil change is done by my bro in law.
