  • Where to service your car

    I know most of you do this yourselves but for us who don't
    it could get even more expensive...

    Yet another part of unenforceable Euro legislation.....what about cars that are no longer "made" eg MG/Rover etc, the Stealers aren't ineterested on working on cars that they actually have to work on. If its not plug and play/replacing bits under warranty, they don't really give a toss...that tends to be why they price "hard" jobs exorbitantly.
    Quick example.....

    Oil contamination in father-in-laws DiscoTD5 ecu/injector loom making it run on 4cylinders......dealer quote..."£1150+vat for a new loom sir"......actual cost/labour.....£5 for a can of carb cleaner to flush the loom, £3 for a tube of RTV to seal the offending multiplug.....and about 45mins of my time (ok so thats priceless) They just couldn't be @rsed with the hassle of stripping and cleaning the loom.

    Did they not talk about this a while back but it was seen to be in contravention of the competiton/fair trade laws?
