Indie or Dealer

Going up for an annual service and MOT.

Been quoted 160 from a local Alfa indie but been quoted 140 from the local dealership.

Just wondering what your opinions on this are? Should I pay the extra for the indie in the hope that he wont do unnecessary extra work, or just go with the cheaper dealership quote?

Thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Decide on one and stick with them. And I'd say indie..........

find out what work they both undertake in the course of a normal service, I think you'll find the indie will do alot more than rushing your car through to achieve his bonus

Servicing a modern car is hardly rocket science though... (unless you want to read the fault codes!!)
