I agree that it is a rip off though, there are only four small jobs that an amateur mechanic would find difficult on a minor service.

It is a good point that Bernard made about the oil, I always service mine and I know good oil is being put in the engine.

But how many garages actually carry out ALL the checks.

It doesn't take a mechanic to tell me that my exhaust is blowing or my tyres are wearing out or I need new windscreen wipers.
