Or just get your main dealer to price match with independents or similar. If they wont budge try another dealer...
Very true, but it's far simpler if you have a warranty claim by not giving the main Stealers an excuse to decline the work and then you having to prove your supplied parts where of an equivalent quality.
Not even genuine parts but parts of at least OE quality.
My #1 comment was deleted by mods because I called main dealers robbing B*"*^*#. I didn't know comments could be deleted for telling the truth and I did not use the full profanity so hopefully the above is now acceptable :D It's about time more people started using the independent garages for non warranty repairs and all servicing, just had mine done after Frauds quoted me £240 for a first year service my local garage done it for £60 labour because I supplied the genuine oem oil & Filter (cost £35) total cost £95 vs £240 dealership price. It's also worth noting you DO NOT need to have your car serviced by a main stealer to maintain the vehicles warranty the local garage just have to use genuine manufacturers parts and provide you with an official VAT receipt.
Buy Mitsubishi, my 10 y/o car has cost me £9.65 in repair bills so far, oh; plus the "l" fell off one of the "Classic" stickers on the drivers door. All dealers are con artists though. Had Toyota try and charge my sister £88 for new wiper blades that cost £12.
