    Angry Price of Oil from Vauxhall

    This might be me being tight and wingeing in vain, but thought I would see what others thought;Went to buy oil and filter today -always get this from vauxhall as costs haven't previously seemed to bad.
    Anyways, went to get 5 litres of the usual 10W40 semi synthetic and its gone up to £32.36 (with VAT)!!!! So a basic filter and oil change is now £36...which seems a mite steep
    Did someone at Vauxhall see me coming or is this the right sort of price?

    Cheers

    £15 is still dear tbh... I use the semi synthetic vauxhall stuff and get it for around £10 for the 5 litres.. i can do a full oil and filter change for around the £25 mark...

    i get all my bits from dealer at trade (without trade pass). Just assume it was natural. im not saying anything to them, cheaper the better lol. think i paid around £15ish too for my oil and filter.

    all i remember is that my service bits plus front pads came to £62 inc VAT.

    Thanks for all the comments - I decided to get a refund from vauxhall as the cost seemed rather too steep. Ended up going to halfrauds and getting it for over a tenner cheaper + they are chucking in a free set of screwdrivers at the moment. Gutted I don't have a trade card judging by what you lot are paying!
