services from small garages, such as autosafe, are much better and cheaper than services from the dealers.

I have friends that work in VW, Fords and Vauxhalls and carry out services, he says he is suprised at the extent that the services actually cover.

Gary, most independant garages will charge you approx half of that cost and will do a damb better job for you also.

Agree with Scooby, your basicly paying for a name. In my Experiance the maindealers and independant garages arnt much different bar an emblem or logo.

Personally id do what TonyMk2 says and check the Sponsers page and just ring up to get a quote, am sure you'll be v suprised laugh
