Hi Guys and Gals,

Just thought I'd tell you something that happened to me today...

Exhaust Back box came loose yesterday...so took it to Kwik-Fit on way home to get it done...needed to be replaced which I knew.

Now i currently have a 1.4 Peugeot 206 Quiksilver, so the exhaust has this little chrome bit on it, which obviously bumps price up a touch.

Kwik-Fit quoted £91 to have it done....So I said yes and guy ordered part which they would deliver and fit within an hour...

On the off chance I rang up my regular garage (Titan in Stoke) and they rang me back and quoted £60 all in.....

So I went back in to cancel it and the manager asked me how much cheaper and where from...I told him and though he was surprised about the price, he offered to do the same job for the same price PLUS the Kwik-Fit 3 yr Guarantee.....



So I saved £31 by making a 2 minute phone call...over a third off the original price WITH the guarantee PLUS I didn't have to use £5/£10 petrol getting to Stoke and back



I know most know you can get a bit off there anyway but thought I'd share this with you guys to show how much you can get off just by making a quick call...



Its worth a try if you can get up to a third off IMHO


If I thought he would have price matched I would of said £50!!!

Is that the Kwik-fit on the island on the edge of town? I've been there before and they seem okay :thumbsup:
