Oil and Filter Change
Approx. £70.00 + VAT
The most important aspect of vehicle servicing is to ensure that the engine oil and oil filter is renewed regularly. Oil becomes contaminated and degrades over time, reducing the efficiency of the engine, and the properties of the oil can change causing wear to the engine.
(Note: there are a huge variety of oil specifications available today, we ensure only the correct oil will be used for your car; on occasion this can result slightly higher costs.)
