Servicing - High Mileage/Low Mileage

Hi - I recently moved closer to my work and so my mileage has dropped considerably, hence I am a couple of thousand miles off the 24,000 mile service but it was a year since the 12,000 mile one.

Does anyone know if I should get the 24,000 mile one done now or can I wait 'till 24,000 comes round in a couple of months - The manual says it is based on mileage not time but the dealer says otherwise (quelle surprise!)

Also, has anyone got tips on authorised service centres in Heathrow(ish) area.

The services always WERE based on time OR mileage.
i.e. either every 12 months OR every 12000 miles whichever came first. So, if you were a low mileage driver, your car would be serviced at least once a year.

Not sure if its still the case these days. Try ringing a different dealer and see what they reckon.

It should be mileage, or equivalent time passed (counting one year as 12,000 miles) whichever comes first.

Ahh I have a similar problem to you my car has had the servicing done up to 48000 and the car has only done 35000 miles.
I asked them to do it last week and was told if they do it now I will lose my warranty I've got to wait until September, I may just change the oil filter myself and not say anything to them, they won't know the car is going elsewhere from now on for servicing.

Have phoned round three dealers now and they all say it needs doing now (ie 12 months/12,000 miles whichever sooner).

Would still be grateful for any suggestions of good service centres - my fovorite based on phone calls today was an 'Alfa Specialist' and 2/3 of the cost (unfortunately not an authorised service centre though).

Thanks again.
