If there good I'll use them if not I'll need some recommendable ones that won't rip you off.

Unless its a really complex car/model or nearly new,I would..

Download voucher from National Tyres to get money off first and get an oil and filter change from them (but stay and watch to make sure they do it right).
Check all fluids and replace the plugs yourself.

Take it to Mike Hurst for Mot.

I personally wouldnt use the likes of kwik fit/ national tyres etc, as have heard of so many horror and rip off stories. For a service message Turnip, I had my car serviced by Turnip and his dad 12 months ago, would recommend 100%. As for the mot I use vauxcare in Birkenhead, again 100% reliable and trustworthy.

+1 For Turnip smile Hes a good lad.

Ive heard horror stories too Finney,but,i stand and watch them to make sure everythings done to my satisfaction.

I had a recent oil (fully synthetic) and filter change done for 39.99 all in at National.

I couldnt buy the oil for less than 80 never mind the hassle of doing it.

I was quoted 285 plus VAT from a garage for a service for the same work apart from checking levels and a cursory glance at the rest of the car IMHO.

Another +1 for Turnip. Get your service there and an MOT elsewhere. I like using Cavendish MOT Centre near Birkenhead Park station.

Like has been said, I'm always wary of these offers and if the right oil is being used. Some diesels with a particulate filter needs a special low-ash oil, and I worry if the garages either know this or care.
