    Default Oil change today

    Changed the oil and filter today. Using VX parts and long life oil, the total came to £32.

    Bargain.


    The local dealer is doing an offer just now, buy the oil, get the filter free. The first 'quote' he said was £48...... splutter....

    Anyway, I mentioned my discount and he said he couldn't find it on the computer, but gave me the discount anyway.

    To cut a long discussion short, he's going to set me up with a trade card for future use. Clearly this card will be open for use by people on here if they wish to borrow it, but they would need to be fairly local to me (Mansfield area) for it to save a lot.


    Hope I'm not breaking some rule by allowing others to use it too....

    You can get the same oil from Autovaux online for £20
