    Default What sort of Bill should i be expecting?

    Need to book my signum in for following work:
    a) New Exhaust (Full system - Dual exit) (Broken front and middle brackets & blowing)
    b) Front disks and pads
    c) Two front tyres
    d) Service (covered approx 50k)

    What should I expect from a main dealer, If I get all the work done seperately will it be much cheaper?

    Dont bother with the main dealer but get in touch with Ian at MPG in Middlewich as he can sort everthing out better and cheaper. He is servicing my car on Wednesday plus he has already Remaped it as well. He has looked after othere members of the sight in the past aswell

    Tyres; Go for 225/45/17's (Assuming you have the standard design wheels) They're cheaper and there's a better choice.

    After that, GSi3.2 is the one to ask, I notice he's lurking!

    Good shout from Andy, Midpoint are very well respected.

    Main stealer more like. Visit a specialist or if you must keep the full Vx history just get the service done AFTER you have done everything else.
