Re: Bronze,Silver & Gold Care

these care packages are just services. you'd be bonkers to buy any of those care packages, they are all covered in your annual service and MOT. if a care package replaced your annual service then its not as bad, but why call it care when its just a service? to be honest every good owner should be doing the vast majority of those things regularly anyway.

remember 'check' only means look for something wrong so they can charge extra for fixing it.
