Take a look on the Autotrader web site to get a price comparison - there are usually around 25 to 35 for sale in any given week. I tracked the prices for a while before I bought mine - there's a wide variation in prices. I got mine last September with 11,000 miles on the clock - now got 26,000. Trip computer was replaced under warranty (switched itself to metric) and new tyres all round at 20,000. That's a watch out - they need extra load tyres which are not cheap unless you find Kwik Fit etc offering 25% off from time to time. I replaced mine with Michelin Primacy (as original) at around 560 with the discount. At around 40,000 miles, that's worth paying attention to.
