    Angry How Much????????

    Sharon's Punto is due a 20000 mile service.

    Just phoned the dealers for a quote, £249.20 inc Vat.

    It's a 1.2 8 valve engine, so nothing especially technical, yet they want to charge more than I paid for any service on my car!!!!!

    I've got in touch with a local guy, quoted £150 +vat and is coming to my house next Friday to do it!

    He even says you don't have to use genuine parts these days for the warranty to remain intact, I might still insist on them though, just in case.

    Also, had a look in the book, reckons the valve clearances need to be checked at 20000, not heard of this since Metro's were still wailing around town!

    £100 quid extra for what? Not bothered by residuals, load of old carp anyway, whenever you PX a car or sell it, all people are interested is if it has a full service history, which it will. Plus it's an Active Sport model, so it looks the absolute Mutts bits and will appeal to any boy or girl racer come the time to sell.

    I was going to get a Panda for the missus until I researched servicing prices. It was the same price for the Panda service. If I had an Audi/BMW I could stomach it, but a Panda!!

    We're sticking with the Fiesta. £75 for a service.

    Tell him the missus booked it into the Fiat Dealer without telling you.

    Or you could just tell him you've changed your mind.
