Based on that advice, i'll restrict the optional changes to the idler pulleys now. Talked to dealer today and they were adamant that these pulleys cost Â£48 each, even though I could show them people selling genuine LR parts on t'internet for Â£20 and explained that there had been a history of pricing confusion on these parts
So Â£100 for the pair instead of Â£35-40. Adds another Â£60 to the Indy-Dealer gap.
Cancelled the service - going elsewhere now. The dealer was helpful enough but Land Rover soaring spares pricing policy/and pure pricing anomalies aren't helping their dealers compete with Indy's
Why anyone still goes to a dealer is beyond me (except TLO for parts/forum discount )
Â£450 for a 1st service, which is as simple as new oil and filter, and a pollen filter is daylight robbery, as is Â£100 for 2 idler pulleys MMP Land Rover - Land Rover Specialist

Oh I don't know, Â£450 doesn't seem that much when you think of how many checks they need to make for all the stuff that could have went wrong on a Land Rover by the time you reach the first service...........
Seriously though, the only reason we still go to dealers is because most of us will still instinctively value a car higher with 100% dealer service history higher than a mix of dealer/indy. Not saying its right but its what happens. In my case I have a 100% LR service up till now and initially it seemed like not too much extra to keep that 100% record. Wrong! On to Plan B!!!!
