  • 1ST SERVICE?

    just bought the car and its a week old but wondering when 1st service is normally due?
    Haven't read the manuals yet too busy playing with it for that

    Lol. I'm the same. I've my car about 10 months and still haven't had time to look at any of the manuals. I think the first service should probably be around 4-5k miles. I haven't even had an oil change on mine yet though Will have it fully serviced next month though when i get my Miltek fitted

      1 year or 20000 miles, whatever comes first.

          nope first oil change is at 1 yr or 20000 , but i did mine at 3000

          my first service due in may so will get another change by dealer then !!

          i think most of us are doing oil changes between 3 - 5000 which is probably where you got 4500 from adski :wink:

            1. Change lubricant oil
            2. Change Engine oil
            3. Measure Gearbox oil
            4. Lubricate locks and hinges

                      im changing the oil for the first time when it goes in for its first service.
                      not sure i see any benefits for doing it earlier.

                        i'm changing mine for a thicker 1 10/40's fully synthetic as recommended by courts they found that the thinner 1 was c**p for the turbo we use thats what caused the turbo on mine to leak as it did with jon's at courts

                          Is the turbo the standard one on stage 3 or an uprated unit to warrant the thicker oil. I only ask cos I have just bought four cans of the vauxhall fully synthetic, cheap though

                              yeh standard turbo mate just works better on the thicker oil mate but every turbo is different although still got the thin oil in the car now on the new turbo and no problems at all
