Thread: Cost Of 'Genuine' Land Rover Parts

    Cost Of 'Genuine' Land Rover Parts

    I got a bit of a shock today when calling Stratstone in Edinburgh to get a price for parts for a service on my Defender 300 TDI.

    I asked the guy what the cost would be for the fuel, oil and air filters and a sump plug washer. He came back and said that including the engine oil 134. I asked for a price without the oil as I can get it elsewhere, and he said 57!!!!

    It takes a max of 7 litres!!! 77 for oil from Land Rover!!!

    I contacted Partco in Edinburgh who will supply all the bits for about 20 plus 12 for a 5litre bottle of oil, so from them the oil works out at under 18 for my motor.

    Do people still just walk into a garage and simply pay the prices being asked? I assume that is what they rely on.

    My father-in-law was told once by a Land Rover mechanic after picking up his Discovery from servicing, that a customer bringing a Range Rover in is charged an extra 10 an hour in labour costs over the Discovery / Freelander owner. Same mechanics, same tools, same floor space...

    Having problems with my disco. Had to replace the fuel filter at the side of the tank, Picked up a landrover one in ayr 45 for one filter, ouch. Mind you the power difference is phenominal and quietened down the pump. need an ACE filter next, another 47 notes unless I can source one on line, Jim

    Stratstone Swansea charged me 870 on the last service for service and new rear pads on a range rover sport, the only reason I use them is to keep the warranty valid.

    I have gone back to a Land Rover because of the price of Japanese parts. The last big one was for a power steering pump for an 04' plate L200 I had since it was a year old. Cannot remember the exact figure but it was around the 300 mark plus fitting. They also wanted my old one in the deal for re-conditioning.

    A previous Isuzu Trooper needed a new fuel pump part (not the whole thing) 900!!!

    They may need more work on them but would still rather pick up the spares costs on a 300 series Landy than a Japanese motor any day.

    I am not trying to it!!!

    Warranty not still valid on Land Rovers with servicing carried out else where?

    Jamross, You have far too much money. Stratstone????? I get most of my parts for Defender and Freelander from either Craddocks or Paddocks or Bearmach. These companies will supply you with quality parts, sometimes free delivery and will be on your doorstep within a couple of days (often sooner). My mentor in all things Landrover is a guy who works at a local garage. He has been the Scottish Landrover Owners Club overall winner for several years and what he does not know about Defenders is just not worth knowing. He swears blind that Landrover parts are superior to after market stuff.

    Had the ABS modulator go on a TD5 110 a few years back Land Rover wanted 1800.00 + VAT + the old part in exchange what a rip off.
    Got one second hand for 180.00.

    Now use Craddock or Paddocks.
