Servicing Question/

I have not had my 147 for long. It came ith a full dealer service history. The car has done 56k but has been stamped up to 60k, obviously time came round before the mileage had been done!
The Cam belt has also been changed 2k ago.

I have very confident in doing my own servicing, so do you reckon I should just bosh on and do it myself and dis regard getting the book stamped, as long as I keep my receipts? As when I sell the car, if I do, its doubtfull that anyone will be fussed on a FSH for the price they will pay taking into account depreciation and the fact that I will prob only sell for around 2k if I am lucky in a few years.

Also, why is the car not warning me about a service? As when I go throught the menus in the dash it says 0 miles to service. But I never get a warning when starting the beast up?!?!

Re: Servicing Question/

Some people are touchy on FSH....personally with some dealers I'd rather they didn't touch it! When the cambelt was changed I hope they changed the tensioners as well! Next belt change due in 34K miles.....if you still have the car then you will need specialist tools to change it.....tho they are readily available...

As you say if you keep it a few years dealer service would probably cost you more than you might potentially lose on future sale value - so really you pays your money (or not) and take your choice!

No idea on the dash service indicator......
