    Default Just had a quote for my first Service

    My car is telling me it will need a service in < 1000 miles (will be around 16k miles and just less than 12 months old). I asked for a cost for it's first service at my dealer today and was quoted £235, I asked what this included and was told Fully synthetic oil, air filter and fuel filter.

    Didn't sound too bad to me after learning of Harry's quote (although I believe this was for a more in-depth service). Any thoughts guys and gals?

    Cheers

    Dave

    Fully synthetic fuel
    Are you sure?

    ...and that's about £200 for labour!

    You should be looking at £150 ish in total for that.

    hmmm think I'll have a proper look in my service book tommorrow and get a few more quotes next week then. What was interesting is that Mark (GSI 3.2) pointed out that the Service book states 40k for air filter but the woman who quoted me said they know that but would never leave an air filter in that long (I don't mind as I was planning to change it myself anyway but thought it was interesting).

    Air filters are cheap as chips....and easy to replace...buy and do it yourself. I do mine every 3000 miles or so. No need to worry about a performance one as the£50 you save will buy about 10 vauxhall ones ;>

    BTW some of the oil used on performance filter can mess up you air mass meter....even the VXR PC prefer standard filters.

    that does sound expensive for a first service.....i paid £295 in the end for the second (major) service and that included a brake fluid change which is not included in the service.

    i'd say ring around Dave.
