    change the plugs, pollen filter aswell and get a bottle of engine flush (to mix with the oil in your engine before you drain it out) and a bottle of good quality injector cleaner for after then it will run sweet as for the price i am not to sure as i do all my own servicing

    Engine flush isn't recommended on higher mileage cars, it can strip off the glaze and carbon build up, on an older/worn engine that can then lead to leaks. Plus, modern oils have a detergent to do that anyways, change it regulary and it'll be fine.

    Changing the head gasket is not normally part of a 'full service'

    It wasn't supposed to be a full service either!...

    I simply was at the dealer to pick up some parts when they had a discount on a oil and spark plug change + some basic service stuff....which ended up in a big pile of work for them

    The only good thing is though that the car ran much better after servicing!
