    Trouble with dealer b/f changes how much of the old fluid do they expel and do they bleed all four wheels?
    Get it done by all means for the stamp etc then DIY after!

    I had mine done by the stealers a few weeks ago and the brakes have felt shite since. Asked to have them rechecked and they said they would have to charge me. They can stick their service stamp up their arse. Local Indy Specialist for me from now on.

    If the service history was from an independent specialist and was backed up by receipts for genuine parts it wouldn’t put me off buying one.
    Mines booked into my local Indy for an MOT and oil service tomorrow. He’s let me supply my own oil which has saved me £100 and is going to check the brakes f.o.c.

    My mate works for sycamore
    I don’t let anyone else touch it.
    Last time it went in the foreman tried putting an apprentice on it. F that!!! If I was paying apprentice prices maybe I would let them do something basic.

    Not as important as my brakes!!

    Mate text me and advises what was happening so I popped in garage and had a chat advising them that I’m not paying apprentice prices :)
