    Just got in and eldest daughter has left her car at Kwik fit for a puncture repair. The spotty yoof on deception has told her to leave it there as they are busy. She asked how much to repair a puncture and 'Bamber Gascoine' said £30! a new tyre is only £45 and there is plenty of tread,the car is a Citroen C3.
    What do you think?

    He's having a laff however dependent on where the actual hole is but it should not be more than a Fiver surely..I'd have to have a word..aC3 so it'll be on 155 sr13 (or fairly closer) no thats a joke that price..

    You can't get thicker than a kwick fit fitter.


    No doubt he will tell her she needs new discs and pads all round when she goes back to collect :RollEyes:

    Stripe up,no more than £15 worst way.I will never use them again after i ordered tyres online and when they fitted i realised they fitted cheaper tyres.They did change then after 2 weeks when they had a call from trading standards.I always use National tyres now.

    To jack the car up take the wheel off take the tyre off repair the hole put it back on the rim re balance it and put it back on the car you mean?

    At least £10 or they'll go out of business

    Well she has come back with a new tyre £60,must be tyre salesman of the year!
    I asked her if she had seen the old tyre-I think I must have been speaking Swahili!

    Thanks for the tips and prices.

    Please do not go anywhere near this rip off firm, I worked (slaved) for them for 6 months, that was 5 3/4 months too long. I could tell you stories that would make your hair curl, (or reappear), give them a very wide berth, and do your wallet a favour. :thumbdown:
