    Default Vauxhall dealer prices.....pleasantly suprised

    My thermostat is goosed and have been on the lookout for another one.My local motor factors wanted £83inc VAT and halfords wanted £8.99 per litre of coolant.being a tight git and not wanting to spend that much i thought id try my dealer.

    I got a stat,2 litres of coolant,a gearbox drain plug,2 interior screws for the sum of £59.20...i couldnt believe it.

    A bit of luck regarding the car for a change lol
