    Default Servicing

    hi all i bought my car when it had 32,000 on it and its previous service was at 27,500 , i have now got 38,200 on it, should i considering getting it serviced or is there a fair bit to go before i need to ? if so i was considering buying a k&n air filter (the standard type a direct replacement for the old one) I have the 1.8 will this increase performance as k&n state. thanks.

    You can't expect a leap in performance with the 1.8 (same as mine). I fitted a ITG foam replacement panel filter, along with the lower airbox mod. I noticed an improvement with this, seem to help sort the flat spot. You soon notice the difference when you put the standard filter back later on.

    I'm suprised it was left until 27,500 to be serviced. Was it an in between service?

    It's done 10k since, you cant be sure what they used or did in that sevice, piece of mind get it done, best way if you are out of warrenty is to get an indy to fit all new filters all round, Vx will hit you £130 for an oil change and a pollen filter, buy Vx parts and have the lot done, then you will know where the state of things is.
