about a tenner for each wheel to change with balancing, and about £20 for wqhel alignment so all in all about £60

Re: Kwik Fit Prices?

they'll charge roughly double that a good place will charge, and they'll tell you lies to get more business, such as

"sir i think you should know that your front wheel bearings desperately need to be changed, and your calipers are seized so badly i'm surprised you've survived this long. we cant legally let the car go back on the road until you've paid us £499.50+VAT"

Yup they've told me that legally crap before, i told them to F off and call the police and see how that looked in the local paper and the national news. Needless to say my brakes were fine and all i'd popped in for a a puncture repair on a sunday when everywhere else was closed.
