Yeah the labour charge is a killer Sporty, Huge variation within the dealership network, I am reasonably fortunate to have a main dealer who are one of the cheapest in the country and a I have very good relationship with them.
I queried all the detail but the biggest portion of the bill was labour and I could not understand why I was paying an excessive rate per hour for a minor service and front brake pads/discs.
I have had the pleasure of using two - one a main dealer and one a minute service centre. The service centre was better than the main dealer but I still came away feeling fobbed off and like I had been robbed.
I usually ask for a fixed price menue for all work like brakes etc.
It is many years since I have paid for any work outside normal servicing even then I rarely have paid for the first service.
14 years I think since I last bought a tyre
