    Default 30k service - How much and what do you get for your cash !

    Car was serviced when I bought it at 10k, 8 months ago. Will hit 30k next month....its an 07 (April) plate SRI

    Any idea how much a service from a dealer will be and what do they actually do ?

    Are there any items that can be negotiated out that they charge a fortune for.........i.e replace air filter.....5 min job but they may knock £30 off ?

    Thoughts please !!

    2nd service, typically £150 to £200
    Best thing is to phone two or three dealerships and ask for prices for the 2nd service

    This is a main service, adding air filter, pollen filter and fuel filter to the basic service which is nothing more than a visual inspection, oil, and oil filter change
    Also, for the main service, the alloy wheel lock is required, as the front and rear brake pads and discs should be measured
    If the wheel lock is not supplied or cannot be found, the dealership should report that they were unable to complete the service or if you can return with the wheel lock

    Negotiating items out of the service may invalidate the warranty, unless you purchase OE service items, keep the receipt and do the replacement yourself, but the saving will be next to nothing
    An alternative is to bulk buy the service items and supply the required ones for each service
