    Unhappy Service Cost

    I put the car in to Reg Vardy for its 4th service today £190.Then the phone rings and a voice says. Hi there Terry your cars with us and the brake pads and front discs are low would you like them changing at a cost of £157 so I thought I have not got the time to do them at the moment and said yes go on.He then says your brake fluid needs to be done.COST £24. Well whats £24 on top of all that so thats done as well.So I decieded to check the price of the disc and was shocked to find they want £124 for them plus the pads are £34 then I would have to fit them all myself so I have made the right choice letting them fit them,not that I could not have done it as I was changing engines and other bits at the age of 9 as my dad was a trained fitter and also a qualified paint sprayer so I always had a spanner in my hand and my face covered in oil when younger.It was loads of fun.The car is ready so Im on my way to pick it up.Also picked up the VXR back panel and little rear apron that goes with this what I ordered last week.So will be busy next weekend getting them on all being well.

    AARRGGHH!!

    I hate the stealers when they do the'' you need new brakes' thing..

    If you could get trade telboy, then the kit of two discs and the pads is only £44 + vat..

    I hate it when they rip people off!!!

    If it's that price to us mere mortals, what do the dealers pay for em.. peanuts..

    I was pretty lucky, my dealer charged me £170 for my service, and I had asked them to check the discs and pads because they hadn't been looked at since they bought the car. Report came back that they were fine...

    However, they said my front tyres were barely legal, but when I went to the tyre fitter he said that was rubbish and I had at least another 3000 miles... weird...
