    Engine oil and filter, not a lot more than that depending on mileage. May also include air filter, pollen filter etc. Its all detailed in your service book.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    There are quite a lot of 'inspect and replace if necessary' items as well though.

    "Inspections" - just another word for drawing up a list of work they want to charge you for.

    Halfords will do you an Interim service for £119 (more if you want synthetic oil) - lot of money for an oil change and filter - takes half an hour and £30 in parts to do it yourself

    Agree - but dont not inspect the car too.. Take the time to give her a good look over and make sure nothing is amiss.

    Shout if you want any help.

    I fully agree - I would have thought that most diy owners who do their own maintainence carry out these checks / inspections on a weekly basis as a matter of course - no need to wait for an annual service
