    Seem very expensive to me, knowing how little is actually done to your car.

    Better value would be getting a VAT registered independant do it with genuine VX parts to the VX schedule. Therefore keeping warranty and probably doing a better job.

    In my experience the main stealers think their elbow is at the top of their legs.

    My 20K service on the GSi (done at 12K/1 year old) was about £130, so your quoted price sounds a bit steep to me.

    Had a word with my mate who works at my local dealer, and he says round about £120ish for the 1st service. I think you need to try a different dealer.

    I had a 2.2 petrol, first service was £120, 2nd was meant to be the same (checked a month before service) had it done then got asked for £220!

    the service manager had changed. prices seem so different between dealers
