    Default 2nd service price

    I have just had a phone call from my local dealer to let me know my veccy is due its 2nd service.They have quoted £249 or £289 if i want the brake fluid changing.This all sounds very dear to me.What have you guys paid for this kind of service?

    Also what to they do on this service?Is it a full service ie spark plugs,oil,filter,air cleaner,pollen filter etc or do they just change the oil,filter etc.
    If its the latter then £249 sounds way high for what they do?

    I generally do mine myself, usually an oil change, oil filter. check break pads/discs, all the other fluids, clean or change spark plugs, etc, etc. I know you dont get the little stamp, but if you own a car for 5 years you save up to a grand on servicing (minus parts costs), makes up for the loss in not having your service history stamped.
