It's definitely worth negotiating on price, usually they'll move a little if it means they get your money/business.

If your having the MOT done at the same time, make sure your not being charged full price for this. Most dealers do it for £27-30 when done at the same time as a service. Full price is around £54 if I remember correctly.

The 4th service is classed as a major service and will also involve changing things that so far, probably won't have been changed* unless your a high miles driver.

-Oil + oil filter
-Engine air filter*
-Cabin air filter
-Spark plugs x4*
-Brake fluid (they recommend every couple of years)
-Key fob battery
-Usual checks

You'll probably get all that done a lot cheaper at a good local independant garage. Just depends how important it is to you to have your service book main dealer stamped.

OP has the 1 litre 3 cylinder. Didn't think before I posted that you'd only need 3 sparks instead of 4.

Everything except the brake fluid change is incredibly easy to do yourself by the way... I had to do my sparks and coil pack about 6 months ago as it crapped itself.
Brakes may well be easy to do... I haven't looked!

Ended up buying the parts myself all genuine and about half vx prices and got my local garage who i know too fit them.
parts cost me about £80 and guy charged me £50 inc vat too fit them so £130 all in.

Im well capable of doing it myself and usually do but wanted the service stamp while the cars still quite new so £50 i feel was worth it.
