    You can get oil and filter change done from National Tyres for £35. They are using 5w-30 i believe.
    Unless you are good with DIY .. then you can order oil and filter from HH and do it yourself.

    yeah I think since you included engine flush too, hence they charging £50. I think its a very good price.

    I have never, ever flushed an engine in 36 years of DIY. In fact I wouldn't, as I worry about removing beneficial deposits. Modern oils are loaded with detergent cleaners. When I took my engine apart last year it was spotless in the sump and other areas, even after 155k miles.

    Exactly as @Zebster says. Never had need to flush an engine and modern engines as long as oil has been routinely changed will keep the engine clean.

    Cancel the flush and save some money.

    By distance selling regulations you have the right to cancel this online purchase.
    You might have to cancel the complete purchase, then re-book without the flush.
    If they tell you that you cannot cancel, insist that you want to, do not let anyone tell you that you cannot cancel an online purchase (I think you have up to 14 days to cancel).

    I would have had the engine flush.

    Could you ring them and ask to have it done?

    Why do you think an engine flush is a good idea?
