i going to book me car in for a service as i got the little spanner flashing and the change oil message i just done over 15000 miles mine is not supposed to go till 18000 but debate over that issue.

so i phone up my local rennault dealer give her my reg etc she says it will cost £265 for my first service so they can kiss that.
so now i got ktec racing to do mine £135 plus vat and they going to fit me boost gauge as well at the same time.

but renaults price was just stupid, why all renault dealers prices differ from other renault dealers so much.

Craig, there should be no difference in prices for services - they have a standard charge / rate from Renault UK for 225's ?

Servicing rates aren't standard for any Renault. There is a basic cost price for the parts that are used in the service, however, there is the labour rate to go on top of that and that varies according to the dealership.

The last garage I worked at was £50 per hour and the current one I work at is £80 per hour. Depending on which service you get done, you can be charged upto 4 hours labour for this so it can make a big difference.

Ktec's price is awesome though!

I had my first service couple of weekends ago @ london west.

I cant state exactly what i paid as i get a staff rate but it was deffo more than ktech and RSTuning. Full price came out at about £240ish......worked to about 2 hours labour + parts + Vat.

The change oil light came on at 17k ead and i knew through my sources that this isnt a major issue so i left it till its service. I had it serviced at like 18030 miles.

On a slightly different note about the servicing milage......there has bee huge debait about what the actual mileage should be for the reset of the counters. After speaking to technical at Head Office in short its whatever it says in your handbook. The Euro4 cars have to be services very 12k miles and the pre Euro4 cars like every 18k.

To be honest i probably would have sold the car by its next service anyways :p.... liiking to sell it when its 2.5-3 years old which is about this time next year.

Craigy i had mine done at K-tec, but they didn't fit a pollen filter!
said they forgot to order it!
so check up on that!
Also they put 10W40 oil in it aswell
Probably why its cheaper don't get me wrong if 10W40 is good enogh for a scooby its good for te megane.
I've got two spare filters anyway so i change it every 6k and get the service done at 18K as per schedule

my main dealer wanted car for 2 hours they said so there labour must be pretty high
It took my technician 2 hours to do the service.....that was at a Renault Minute centre.

Runs fine m8, but if renno say use 5W40 thats what should be in it i guess
so i'm gonna swop it, the filters the same as the clio 1.8 16V and williams etc so easy to get hold off (my mate had some renno ones he gave me)

I unfortunately didn't notice until i saw the job printout a few months after
might still have a winge tho'

The 5 and the 10 relates to a certain viscosity at that temperature i think
so the 5 becomes thinner quicker than the 10 i think, suppose the 5 protects the engine bit better, but thats what warranties are for!
something like that anyway
