The tyres I have are 'Premium Contact 6' which are £94.21 fitted from Blackcircles.I'm guessing a bit as I don't know exactly exact car model and what tyres you had fitted. The auto gearbox only appears to be available on the diesel but tyre sizes for petrol are similar.

Either way, you were gouged for £15 or £30 a tyre simply for not driving across the road to National Tyres. Assuming you only have the 'sensible' 16" wheels you just gave away £120! If we look at home fitting prices are similar but straight away I see a further 10% off for a purchase of 4 tyres so that brings it down to about £255.
It's your money, but with very little extra effort that bill could have come down to under £1k. Just getting brakes and tyres from somewhere like National Tyres could have knocked around £300 off the bill.
My understanding is the disc/pad landscape changed when asbestos was largely removed from pads.120k and its never had a set of discs Call me cynical but they must have been changed at some point or now be too thin to be legal
He has revealed the cost...which he is seeking to justify to himselfI'm bored of this game now. You give no/wrong/half information to start a discussion about something you won't even reveal. Then come back with contradictory info, and for what purpose? To brag about how much money you can waste on an old car?
I'm out of this thread, I have better things to do.
Will it be revoked after Brexit?It's an EU-wide regulation so Belgium is included. Dealers there cannot insist that servicing is done exclusively by them.
I use Quidco when buying tyres from Blackcircles. In your case I could have saved over £26 on the tyres compared to the dealer price.The tyres I have are 'Premium Contact 6' which are £94.21 fitted from Blackcircles.
Checking the garage bill, I was charged £98.89 a tyre.
