£170 for spark plugs!!! are they hand made, lol. If you take the £34 from the aircon service, at £466 it is not that bad in this current climate of price rises.Hey all,
Owned my RS 10 years today
And it's this time of year it goes into Ford for its annual service - it has had a full Ford service history in my time with timing belt done by mountune in 2019 when getting the car forged.
I take it to a TrustFord centre just outside Belfast - the main reason I take it there as I am friends with one of the techs and I knew it was in good hands and he got me friends and family discount on the work carried out.
My friend has since left but I still take the car there as I've never had any issues with them servicing it...until now.
I rang up this week to book it in, was told it's a major service as spark plugs required and I also went for the aircon refresh as it make the car smell new again at £34.
So oil, filter, pollen filter, spark plugs and aircon refresh....£670
Asked if that was correct and was told yes, I then asked what it was without the spark plugs....£500
Surely this can't be right? I know inflation is high but surely a standard service isn't £500 these days for our cars?
Any replies/experiences from others appreciated.
But £170 for plugs, they definitely took your pants down and gave you a slap on the ass.
