    Default Car away for major service!

    As above due to no council tax this month and my beasty needing some tlc,I dropped her off to my trusted mechanic tonight for a major service, only using genuine vauxhall parts ,not very cheap tbh ,46quid for spark plugs! And never seen a paper oil filter before but she is worth it and also getting all fluids changed too inc auto box fluid etc,this car h behaved faultlessly and cost me no money in repairs in the two years I've owned her so I certainly don't grudge giving her a full service, mind you my mechanic not looking forward to replacing rear bank of spark plugs due to a fair bit of stripping of other parts lol,canny wait to get her back as I never leave her parked anywhere other than my driveaway,ill post results of the overhaul when I get her back tomorrow

    Full service on the V6 CDTI is £180, so add the spark plugs and it should be around £230
    A Brake Fluid change adds a further £30

    I had to pay around £10 per plug, and that was for my tame mechanic to fit them. Pogo who do you use as your mechanic?
