Hi, I have just been given a price of £512 for a 4yr/80k service. OMG Are they gold plating the engine at the same time.
What is additional to this service from any of my previous services?

My wife says that I never listen or something like that !

That sounds very steep.... I paid around £350 for my two year service which is a main ( main every two years) So I think your is the same. Shop around.

Sounds too expensive, even at kosher garage rates with high overheads and VAT. Is that with a Vx Service Club discount? Does it include a transfer box oil change?

I have a lifetime warranty or 100,000mls and I wondered if they were covering their liabilities
I will shop around tomoz and report back.

They did say that they do a major service for £169 using "generic" parts.

Is this a recognised Vauxhall dealer or an independent?

I don't think that will be a main dealer at that price.
The filters and oil cost more than that at a main dealer

Result, just phoned the dealer direct and negotiated a service, using my own dexos2 oil, for £240.
I'm going to take it to a MOT only garage,as ive been stung in the past with that.
Happy days
