    Default Are Oil Filters for Y30DT really THAT expensive?

    Sorry to ask for help again so soon..... I'm now sorted on my oil thanks to the replies to my post yesterday.

    My mechanic has now told me that the only oil filters he can source are £35 (from Lenco) or £47 (from Vauxhall) - and I suspect those are both ex-VAT prices.

    I've had a look on-line and have found a Bosch Oil Filter at www.vauxhallworldparts.com for £11.14. Will that be suitable? If I have to pay £35-£50 I will, but I would consider Bosch to be a good make, so can't understand why that one is so much cheaper. Can anyone help - or do you all pay the the price and use the Vx part?

    Thanks
    John.

    It's bl00dy expensive - that's all I can see is special about it! I bet it's even made by Bosch - it probably costs the extra £36 for it to go through the process of having 'Vauxhall' printed on it!

    Thanks Mate. I've just had a look at Eurocarparts (they've got a Depot 10 miles from me so easy to go and collect). The Oil Filter does look good - unfortunately they don't stock Bosch Air and Fuel filters. I am very tempted to use www.vauxhallworldparts.com because I can get Bosch versions of all three filters there.

    .....as for being a Cash Cow.....they should realise, us 3.0 drivers have empty pockets because we have to fuel the things! lol

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    £32 from Vauxhall trade club or £12 from local factors for bosch one.

    ehich you'll find manufacture the Vauxhall one.

    stick bosch one in
    in that's what I switched too as soon as I found a cheaper alternative to Vauxhall due to last year my car getting a service ever 3 months
