Sounds reasonable, 10-15 for the oil, 5 for the filter, 10-15 for labour.

Re: price for oil change

Haha, ok well I'm liking this a lot less now.
It'd take me less than an hour to do an oil and filter change and I'm an amateur, 50 an hour is ridiculous labour charges.

Edit: Adding 20 extra to change the airfilter is ridiculous when it can be done in less time than it takes for the oil to drain out of the engine.

Re: price for oil change

I'd happily change the oil on a car out side in the rain for 30+vat in labor 😂😂

Re: price for oil change

How about the HR costs and the showroom/workshop mortgage ?
Dealers and mechanics also have children needing butter on the toasts ;-) If we count everything, the final result is about the same if you DIY or bring the car in a garage ...
