    Whats wrong with value line servicing???

    They use genuine parts and castrol fully synthetic oil so value is the right word.

    Gotta admit my car has been there twice and for a MOT and never no big bill.

    Certain main dealers do rip you off and so do certain indys you just gotta try and find an honest one.

    All i was saying that indys aint always much cheaper as the 74 pence shows.

    nothing wrong with value line servicing at all, they are a bargain....and im not saying they are ripping you off either....a long list means they have been thorough i suppose.

    Just that the hourly rate where im from is actually scary for the extra work that may need doing.

    So its not always the case that indys are much cheaper
    What does this "oil service include"??

    I'm thinking of giving Cargo Auto Repairs a go over BMSport because they are members of the Good Garages Scheme. They are the closest BMW specialist in my area.

    I've been using them lately. Ritchie is Ex BMW tech, very knowlegable and a nice bloke. They do a good job, cant fault them.

    Thanks, any idea how much they charge for a full service? Labour rates?

    i paid 235 for an inspection 1 which included a couple of extra bits too. They've also just done me 2 new wheel bearings and some bushes. think its about 60 quid an hour labour (at a guess)

    When you book just make sure they have the courtesy car available (if you need it). To be fair though its not far from Dartford Town Centre.

    Went yesterday to have my engine diagnosed & had a quote for some works. I thought the price was very reasonable. Ritchie advised on the cheapest solution first. Will have the work done next weekend. They even offered me tea =)
