    Did you all read about my £640 clutch expedition?

    Lost me clutch on Friday, so towed off to vaux on saturday morning. They looked at it first thing on tuesdaym which was fair play as they were quite busy!

    Anyway, it cost me a grand total of £648............... :shock: :shock:

    £350 of which was labour :shock: :shock: :shock:

    They also stiched me up with a new slave cylinder...............WHICH DIDNT NEED REPLACING!!!!!

    They didnt give me my parts discount :roll: :roll: so you can i imagine that by now i'm abit peeved!!!

    Spoke to service manager today, am getting my old slave cyclinder put back in, nothing wring with it on closer inspection!!!! that was £130!!, the clutch was the chepest bit!!!!

    I thought my dealer was OK............................................thei ving scum

    I know the feeling with main dealers - mine tried to tell me they didn't need to remove the wheels to inspect the brakes and carry out a "full" service. Consequently i didn't give them my locking wheel nut key and they didn't lose it (hint of sarcasm).!!
