    Default 3.0 v6 Large Service Charge

    Had my 55 plate estate on 70000k in for a large service at the stealers today. Below is what you can expect to pay

    Large Service----------------£112.50
    Remote Batteries x2-------- £7.98
    Oil Filter-----------------------£35.55
    Oil Seal-------------------------£1.10
    Fuel Filter----------------------£11.80
    Air Filter-----------------------£10.00
    Pollen Filter---------------------£8.60
    Oil 8 Litres-------------------- £86.40
    Brake Fliud Change/Bleed----- £29.00
    Add VAT
    Grand Total------------------£235.11

    Take note the glow plugs were not done as 5 of them were siezed in. Had they been done the price of a large service would have been bumped to

    £538.23

    I replace the handsey batteries myself, equally I advise the dealership NOT to replace them
    I bought a pack of 10 from a local supplier for £9
    Also noted you did not get charged for a new sump plug and seal
    Apart from that, price seems quite fair
    I was quoted £180, plus £25 for the brake fluid change, although I didn't have to pay for it (paid under Complete Protection plan)
