    Default Just had FORTE added on my first service

    Phoned up for price of first service and now I've had it back, I see that it's had FORTE added at £ 25 plus vat. Does go better but that could be due to the air filter ( but looking at the bill it's not on it ) Comments ?

    25 + vat only costs between 10 and £15 out the motor factors think someones trying to pull the wool over your eyes, as for air filter think its every second service or 40000 miles that it gets renewed

    It looks like it's for an emissions service, so it would be one for the tank, and one in the oil to flush, you normally have to ask for it to be done as an extra, so it's probably not been done, but listed to show so, as long as you weren't charged for it I wouldn't worry about it. hth.

    Must admit to signing paper BEFORE the service and not reading it ( chest's on reception obviously caught me out ) but more than happy with VV's explanation. Next time I'll go to the bloke . Book indeed does say air filter @ 40,000 but car is far more responsive. Fair do's, they got it out on time as well
