    It may not help if it comes to trade in time. where's the next nearest main dealer - or is ther a vaux specialist nearby?
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    IMHO i dont think it really matters where you take it, i took mine to a normal garge and they charged me half the price of what vauxhall quoted me and they used all vauxhall parts

    no one close, would have to drive to the next city, not overly keen on leaving it with a dealership that i've not used b4, not had a good experience with the last time i used my local

    Its nice to have the service book stamped up and proof that it has always been serviced by Vx.....But they charge alot of money for most minor of things.

    Take it to a good local garage, at least you will come away with some money left in your wallet.
