    Bits for a Service

    I'm going to service the car myself, and wondered if anyone knows any good places (other than Hellfrauds) to get the stuff from.

    I'm going to need:

    Oil Filter
    Oil
    Pollen Filter
    Front Discs
    Front Pads
    Spark Plugs

    The car is a 2002 1.6 16v, and is coming up to 60,000miles

    Cheers

    vauxhall do service kits, and brake pad/disc sets.

    seen a few on the bay of e.

    think the service kits about £22.

    and brakes around £70.

    Not sure how much different that would be from hellfrauds.

    Won't be needing the air filter as I've got the pipercross one. How difficult is the fuel filter, as I've never done one of these before?

    nice one, so far.... Astra Service Kit, which works out at £32.50 in p&p, and while I'm getting my hands mucky, I want to replace the front discs and pads as well, Astra G Discs and Pads which works out at £70, so all in all, £102.50 for a full service.

    Does that seem like a reasonable price, as Halfords were selling the discs and pads for £50, and I don't need the air filter from the service kit, as I have a pipercross filter at the minute, so will just give that a clean and an oiling up.
