LOL what a joke, i am getting a new headgasket on the VR6 with all other gaskets and parts renewed and a full 20k service (@118K) with nearly every servicable engine part changed for less than 500 with PSI tuning.

They're seriously dear ! When i got my vr corrado the other month the previous kept all recipts, he took it to pentraeth from new untill last year, for servicing etc, my god you should see the bills 500, 1000, 750 for couple of hrs work, totalling 16k in all, gezz they seriously rip people off. Makes you ask if its worth it just for a stamp, thats the only reason I take my mk5 there. Any work that needs doing i take it to my brother's garage.

the service pricelist on the wall is enough to give you a coronary.

If anyone wants a good garage on the island try Prestige Car Care at Star Crossroads where star carpets an peninsula windows are.. I used to work there for a couple of years, they're known as BMW specialists but are also VAG specialists an will do any make.

When I was there labour was 25 +vat so not bad an shouldnt have changed much.

Worth gettin a quote an you still get a good stamp for your book 01248 715 888 an ask for stuart.

Oh yeah, an he's also an official Superchips agent Very Happy
