How much for this lot?

    I've just had a fair bit of work done on my car and I wondered if anyone would care to guess the cost of the following:

    Four premium tyres
    Four brake discs and four sets of pads
    Brake fluid change
    Coolant change
    Injector clean
    Aircon regas
    Wiper blades

    It's a 2012 Vauxhall Meriva auto with 75,000 miles on the clock.

    Everything was done by a main dealer.

    All the items are wear and tear, so I'm not complaining the work needed doing.

    But how much do you reckon the bill was?

    More than the value of the car?

    Yes, I thought about that which might be the next discussion point.

    Mind, main dealer prices up here in the frozen north east are a lot less than what you are used to paying.

    Main dealer OEM discs and pads can be a real killer :sad:

    Discs at 75,000 - what you been doing - 120,000 on mine, and a much heavier car, and from 2002 !

    Expensive I'd say

    It lives in the frozen north east, so presumably the roads are salted year round :whistle:
