Well it seems we were 'had' by the 'special offer' on the garage's website - the bill wasn't 25+vat but approx. 47 all-in! Unfortunately I had to work so my wife took the car in but it sounded very strange - they fobbed her off with the fact that they *had* to put the dye in to check for leaks etc., and once it's in they can't take it out so they'll need to charge for it etc... at one point they mentioned the price could be 72 or something!

Anyway, it doesn't appear there were any leaks as the invoice just mentions oil , dye and gas. Incidentally the labour charge was more than the advertised 25+VAT too.

I've not had chance to drive the car since it was done so I don't know if that's fixed the problem or not, but if it's not working then I have a feeling I'll be getting my money's worth by becoming a bit of a pain

Don't think we'll be going back there again for anything else though
