Popped in to Ford dealer today to book a service. Gave reg number, asked difference between the 99 service and the quoted 195 interim. No answer other than "more checks are done"
Then I asked what the difference is between the 195 interim service and the 175 interim service advertised on their website. Answer "Er, well we'll honour the website price."

So I picked the 99 service which includes an oil and filter, and air filter change. I asked what it'd cost to add a change of spark plugs and pollen filter. The plugs cost 61! And the pollen filter 21. I agreed to it.

The really scary bit was when the service advisor said my car would also need a refill of the diesel particulate filter, which she quoted for. I was surprised at that given the cars a petrol!

Am I letting myself in for disaster, we'll find out next week!

2005 Focus C-Max 1.8 Petrol Ghia + Sony 6 disc, 2007 tail lights, Led bulbs all over and HID front fogs.
