To be honest, an oil service is just and oil & oil filter change. Parts will cost in the region of £6 for a oil filter an say £45 ish for oil. An Independant garage should charge about £10-30 to do this for you.

FWIW, we have a flat price of £10 labour for 'oil services' + parts regardless of what the car is.

£30 is optimistic....

OEM Filter - £15 ish
new drain plug and washer - £3
labour - £25 ish
Oil - 5w 30 iirc - Mobil one or any decent semi synthetic - £40 for 2 5 litre containers or if your car has under 5 litre capacity then say £20
