So you have bought all the stuff at trade but you want someone else to fit them?
I don't work in the motor trade, but if I did I wouldn;t fit someone elses parts.
Regardless of the profit to be made, I could fit your parts and you later find out something was wrong and blame me for having not told you they were wrong.
If a mechanic goes to his suplier and asks for parts for a 159 1.9JTDm and gets given the wrong oil/filter then ultimatly he has some comeback with his supplier, I doubt you would offer him any kind of warranty or indemnity.
Oil filter/oil/air filter in a 159 1.9 isnt a hard job (it can be a pita to get the undertray off) and if you have gone to the trouble of getting parts trade then why expect someone else to fit them?
Also I've never heard of a mobile mechanic stamping a service book, and if one did exactly how much would that be worth? it'd probably devalue the car.
Much better to not have a stamp in the book, but have a reciept for parts and a date/mileage log of work done.
