    Default Service Costs

    Anyone any idea if this is reasonably priced. Today i've visited an independant vx specialist to enquire about the cost of a service to my 03' 2.0 DTI, he's quoted £80 labour to do the following,

    1. Oil and filter change
    2. Fuel filter
    3. Pollen filter
    4. Air filter
    5. Glow plugs.

    I say labour as i'm going to supply the parts for him, was thinkin about buying the haynes manual and doin myself but it's having the time and from experience theres always one tool that i haven't got and gotta go shopping for 2 hours to ****** find it cos it's a sunday and no one likes opening.............................

    Oh, and he said that price will include him giving the car a check over.

    the check over probably means he will find something to charge you another £90 for

    If you charge at £30 per hour for labour I still think it is expensive.
    I would do it myself.
