    I know mine got serviced, MOT, new catalytic convertor - 508 pls I think they just pluck a figure out of thin air!!!!

    My brother is a mechanic as well (he didn't do the work unfortunately) We live 100 miles apart.

    I think it's disgraceful :mad:

    And it will need to go back after Christmas for a new engine mount - 172.

    Adrian told them not to do that this time - just do what it needs to get through the MOT.

    They should build cars better. It's only 5 years old and we don't drive it heavily. The engines are so well built these days that they go forever while the rest of the car disintegrates around it. :mad:

    I'm dreading mine going through this year.....if it's too expensive, I may have to get rid of it and use a bike.

    It doesn't matter how much I set aside for car services it is always a good 200 more than that.
