Personally I like to save my money and learn something new and do it myself especially the 50k service that is coming soon which is only a oil and filter change. i rang VW for the parts which come to ?33.04, not to bad... then i randomly asked how much it will be for them to do the oil change, they quoted me ?100 labour! im going to buy some drive up ramps and the oil filter ratchet removal tool, should only cost ?40 for the both of them, then i have all the necessary to do the oil changes every 5k miles. my car isn?t under warranty so i would prefer to do all the servicing myself, does any one else do this? i no i wont get a nice VW stamp in the service history, but I just think of all the money i could save and spend on other mods etc. obviously some things that I don?t have the bulls to do myself I will leave to a well known garage? but not VW!!
