    oil change with decent oil is about £40 the cheapest i have seen

    doesnt seem too bad over all tbh. the decent reputation is worth a few quid imo also.

    tbh i was just avoiding the fuel filter change, if they damage the housing they can replace it ,also doing it on the drive in this weather doesn't appeal
