why do you not ask them what they are going to do ?
ask them how much the oil is going to cost and can you bring your own ?
and ask them how much labour they are charging ?

and remember you can take it to any gargae to do the service as long as they stamp the book !

Whats the going labour rate ? £79plus vat per hour ???????????? - - Just those " inspect " items if done properly have to add up to an hour surely ?? finding a loose hose clip or wrongly routed hose could save loads of future grief, .. but would they do those inspections thoroughly :?: :!:
