    Default Payday is service time!! am i missing anything?

    going to get car serviced next week, and it has done over 50K now

    Just want to know if i am missing anything?

    GM oil
    oil filter
    fuel filter
    have k&n so panel is fine
    will use some 10k boost once service is done

    anything else i should be looking for/doing?

    I am getting garage to do oil change and do filters for me, as i dont have ramps to do oil change, plus knowing me i would make a mess lol

    Planning on cam belt change at 60K also (from what i have read, VX recomment 100k)

    Any help would be much apreciated

    Pollen filter very important too.

    Check tyre pressures and spare wheel, check windscreen wash with correct winter mix.

    The sump plug has a washer on it, for the price of the washer it makes sense to stick a new one on.

    I think you're better off getting a new drain plug, not just the washer, or next year you'll be posting up one of those (very common) "Help, the oil drain plug has rounded off!" threads.
