Booked car in for mileometer bulb to be replaced ( car is astra coupe turbo) as the missus was having some work done on her car at the same time, arrived at Hartwell Vauxhall in Kidlington (nr Oxford) booked car in and asked How much would that be? expecting the answer to be oh a fiver or something and was stunned when the guy said " that will be about Ł100 !!" F**K me I thought and asked where his stripey jumper and swag bag was, only for him to say well it is a tricky thing to change, we have to remove the speedo insturment panel blah blah blah.
Needles to say I just bought the bulb for 59 pence.
I asked for a bill just so I could put it on here for people to have a laugh at, got the bill and it had been changed to Ł89.88 inc VAT, still no bargain I thought!
Bulb 59 pence
