    Brake fluid change, coolant change. If you want to be really thorough gearbox oil change.

    Check the power steering fluid level. Has yours had a timing belt? 6 years or 60k for the 1.8, which ever comes first. Go easy on the fuel filter as it has those silly little push in clips, a small screwdriver can be used or the specific tool is available off ebay for a few quid. Brake fluid is only required if the have not been done within the last 2 years. Coolant change is not part of any service schedule and as long as it passes below -28c it is fine, although the orange/red OAT antifreeze is felt to have a minimum service life of 5 years. Gear box oil is not part of a service and has no change interval either.

    LoL. Thermostat is dead easy and you'll need about 3.5lt of antifreeze to do the change/flush. I never did the water pump when I did mine, will do it next time, if I still have the car.
    Did you get a new rubber gasket ring for the sump plug? 26p from VX I believe.
