RIP OFF prices again

Had a service yesterday
Been quoted
i need 2 new tyres as they are 3.4 mm(not yet i dont) 66.64 per tyre
brake fluid change 47.99
new coil spring snapped 200.14 yes 200 to replace 1 coil spring
its no wonder people are scrapping perfectly good cars with these prices
got another quote
I already have 4 springs new (bought a couple of years ago in readines for the broken coil spring ) to do all corners
My local independant garage 120 to fit including an MOT
So take in to consideration including price for the 4 coil springs and fitting doesnt even go over 200 quoted by main dealer for a single coil spring fitted!!!!!

It's not's a Punto POP
but it is probably the most improved pop in the uk
