Just been told need

Two new tyres

One going bald (it wont wear a wig )
One had a piece of metal in it. I think I know what that was from!
New brake discs - nearly on minmum
Change of Anti-freeze, Fuel filter (?) Brake fluid and oil changed

How much do you think for all this, including the service?

Re: Car Service

You using a main dealer or an independent?

And will you be supplying your own tyres for them to fit?

Right depends on what size tyre, I replaced my fronts on Tuesday, Toyo TI-R's 195/45 R15 cost me 67.21 all in for each wheel.

Brake discs? you mean pads yeah? Shouldn't set you back alot, but will be cheaper buying them from someone other than directly from Fiat.

Change of fluids etc. cheap and get most of that from places like Halfords.

Re: Car Service

I laughed at Kwikfit when they quoted 112 for mine Even told them where I could get them for price that I did fork out for, still refused to budge. Laughed again then hungup.
