  • had my first service today

    ive been busy today, service and lowering lol.

    was a bit peed off that i had to give vaux 125 quid for some kid to do an oil change on my car but i suppose its worth it for the warranty.

    anyway....

    checked the milage before and after, and nothing, no test pilots or nothing. they did the service, cleaned it and give it back in perfect working order. quite pleased with the service tbh.

    but another question... when the service light is on does the ecu prevent full power because i can swear my car is faster now the service light is turned off :?

          i dont think i told anyone about when i test drove a vxr, and the sales bloke (who was younger than me, and im 21) drove from round the back in it, and said, "so...is this the 1.6?"

          my reply was...."move over" as i screeched away from the forecourt.

          haha

              thats all good and well but no stamp, no warranty lol.

              im a mechanic/engineer so im pretty competant at doing an oil change but this is vauxs way of pulling down your pants and shafting over 100 quid out of you.

              unfortunatly, it had to be paid. not a lot i can do about it if i want my warranty.

                i know what your saying about warranty ,but the car is only7mth old and has at present got 4000 on the clock !!

                when its a yr old i will take it to a vaux dealer for service to avoid any warranty issues !

                but like i said i used genuine vaux parts so its not like vauxwill be taking a halfords filter off when they service it :wink:

                    Had my oil done yesterday at my local vaux for 45 quid inc parts and labour! Slightly off the subject, but you can request the car is not test driven. On an oil change it shouldnt need to be driven. Not with my astra but my corsa they had to replace the throttle body and i told them no test drives and they obided by it! Its your car at the end of the day, so as far as i am concerned its my say so who drives it!

                          magnatech is the worst oil anyone can ever put in an engine.

                          ive been around engine builders for a couple of years, working on tuned turbos and the like and its a known fact that magnatech is the worst oil ever.

                            Anyone living around the leeds area, if you go to A.S.K in Kippax they are selling Vauxhall 5w 30 fully synthetic for £17 or £18 cant remember which, I think thats about trade club price, plus they have tonnes of other stuff too
