    All depends on the service you pay for mate

    at 4 years I would be looking at additional brake fluid change and also coolant change.

    Id also want the plugs changed and ALL filters.

    Yes

    So to be clear if a car came to me at that mileage and I would be looking at doing:

    Oil
    Oil Filter
    Air Filter
    Cabin Filter
    Fuel Filter
    Plugs
    Coolant flush and change
    Brake Fluid Change
    Wheels off inspection
    Grease points
    Computer Diagnostics

    .... and go from there...

    Depends on if your car is still under warranty (Network Q, third party, etc)

    Next whether OE or generic (VX offer their MasterFit service) service

    As for items, see the front of the Service Book
    As above, the minimum should be :
    oil and oil filter
    pollen filter
    air filter
    fuel filter
    spark plugs
    optional - Brake Fluid (see last interval, maximum 2 years)

    Coolant interval does not appear on VX service schedule any more (for the Vectra C) but it may have to be replaced on higher mileages as other component parts get replaced (such as the water pump)

    Coolant change doesn't need doing yet - if it's still got the long life stuff in. Min of 5 years.

    Also plugs might not yet need changing. Not sure of the 1.8, but in the case of my 2.2 Direct, they don't need changing for 8 years or 80,000 miles (whichever is sooner)
