You're obviously not aware of the Jersey factor, where we pay more than the mainland UK for everything.

The Peugeot independent I used to use for my 107 said they would do an oil and filter change for circa £ 70 but I am sure it would be just an oil and filter change and nothing else.

We don't have 20% VAT but a 5% GST. A lot of places here charge the same price for things as you would in the UK despite it only being 5% GST. Price is the same but only 5% GST and definitely not collecting any tax for the UK government.

Basically you are trying to justify getting done...

So it's your fault the government doesn't have enough money so they have to make cuts to the NHS

Hey guys, when you think about it there are many owners here that give their cars to Main Dealers.
It gives them security.
They can afford it.
They are not capable of doing the service work.
No doubt there are many other reasons.
