    Default 2nd service on car should i pay dealer prices?

    Should i pay dealer prices for a 2nd service?

    I can take the car to an independent who will use genuine parts etc but will save a small fortune in the process as labor costs no where near dealership costs.

    What does everyone think? Is a proper dealer stamp that much of a deal come re-sell time?

    Personally would not bother me (it hasn't in the past) as long as the annual service has taken place.

    What's your thoughts guys... looking at a saving of 1,700.00 !!

    I know they cannot void warranty's anymore if you do take it to an indy... main dealer prices are just taking the pee.. nothing to do with if one can afford it or not just down to principle tbh.

    Maranello's for me - everytime

    Inbound quote means little - it's the final bill that matters
