    Sounds about the normal price even to take to back street garage with overheads. Decent oils fairly dear now it's all down to what they actually do for the price

    Do it yourself

    All you need to do is change oil and oil filter, air filter, and fuel filter, not all garage change fuel filter.

    I do my own car and cost £50!(I dont have a standered air filter as its a air inuction kit(on a diesel I know!) :p

    do it yer sen its so easy its unreal i get my parts at cost i know someone who works for a parts company so its cost me 18.50 for all the bits and oil.

    now and again ill get some to bleed the fluids though for brakes and stuff.

    if yer strugling look on youtube loads of vids on how to do services.

    make sure you prime the fuel filter 1st before you fire yer van up;)

    I hate garages, just from other peoples past experiance, they seem well dodgy, how do you know it the work has been done?They could of taken the cash and said its been done..


    Only people I trust on my car is my ex mechanic mate for small fixes and for big garage jobs pay a little more and take to a vauxhal masterfit.

    And like I said service my own car. Happy days! :D

    I know a guy who comes down from Dewsbury, and charges me £50 for the full service. I buy all the parts, oil, filters etc, bargain! £200 is very steep. My old garage charged me £80 ( i purchased the parts)
