24000 service

Been quoted 160 for this, seems a bit cheap to me, is this not a major service? Also what pressures should I run 215x45x17 tyres on?

Thanks in advance Phil

What model do you have? I've been quoted 193 for the 24k on my 1.6 Active with aircon.

Will check the pressures when I get home as haven't got my manual handy.

I recently paid 160 for my 24,000 mile service on my 1.6 dynamic with Air Con so that seems ok to me.
The manual says 33ps1 for that size tyre which I also have

Hope this helps

mines being serviced today, got two quotes, 160 not including brake fluid and 180 including brake fluid renewal. Thats with ol Uncle arnold.
On a side note they found an anti roll bar track rod (I think thats what they said) needed replaced and they told me it aint even covered under warrenty!
Bit peed with that, so just told them only having a car 10 months and to be told stuff aint under warrenty, aint exactly right is it

I wish, blimey down sarf I've been quoted between 230-275 for a 24k service on a 1.6 dynamic with AC.

I'm having it done at an Independent Alfa dealers instead - top tuners and racers by all accounts and they wanted 185.

Thanks for reply guys, Its a 1.6 Dynamic(the faster blue colour) with air con. Its through Reg Vardy(not ideal but still better than Arnold) Should be 05180 but get 0520 off for being a loyal customer !!!!!.(yes stupidly bought 2 cars from them). Its in on Tuesday so will let you know about final bill although they were true to their word with 12000 mile which came in at 0598.

thanks again Phil.

Which one is Pam? The chunky blonde, or the skinny blonde that looks like she needs good bone?

She's the skinny blonde
Tammy is el chunko
Cara is the young skinny dark haired girl with too much eye liner on! (bright pink is a bit hard to miss)
Hmm, is it showing that we've been there a few times ? [:0]
