To be honest i couldn't tell you what a full servive or an interim service would involve

I will let others answer and see what they think to see what they think there getting for there money but its going to be far less than some think,

The bottom line with me is a can't afford Main dealers.......... so i use my independent, and off the top of my head i think he charges about 55 hr and the saving always comes in the price of the aftermarket parts unless its dealer parts only,
