    Default Guess how much for an oil change!!!!

    Well I'm going to name and shame today after what I found out yesterday!!!

    I needed an oil change and yes I did want fully synthetic oil for a 3.2 but you'll never believe the price that Evans Halshaw of Chilwell wanted to charge-



























































    £130!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Then managed to be squeezed into Marehay at Ripley and it cost £60!!!!!!!!

    And there might be a few more naming and shaming soon!!!

    we had a 3.1 TD monterey on Lease when they were new. We thought an oil change of £70 was expensive for that !

    Get this, my dealer refuses to do interim oil changes. I have phoned them a couple of times for an oil change in between services and they just say it doesn't need it, wait until the next service LOL

    Full retail for 5 litres is £44, I'm guessing the filter like the V6 CDTi is £30, so there's £80 of it and the other £50 must be for the labour time, does make you wanna curl up though when you consider I used to do a 2.0 DTi for £16 all in.

    1.8 petrol is £30 for parts (long life oil) over VX counter.


    Your quote from VX sounds excessive.
