Hi guys, went into my local vx dealer after some oil. Had a service only 10,000 ago but was thinking it can't hurt to change the oil again as its starting to turn a dirty colour.

Anyway, for 05w30 super syn...they wanted £45 for 5L with a trade dscount:eek:

Does that seem the right price?

Cheers, Chris

Did this include them putting the oil in for you. Or include a filter and fitting? If not and it was just the oil you were after then you should just go buy better quality stuff from somewhere else not halfrauds though lol

That sounds reaaaaaaally expensive.. For £20 I got:

- 5L 5w30 GM Oil
- Oil Filter
- O-Ring

Obviously with trade discount... On the invoice, the oil worked out about £16, but the RRP was about £39. I'd try somewhere else first, doesn't seem like they're giving you the discount!!
