    Default 3rd Service yesterday

    Morning, all.
    I took my Siggy in for it's 3 year/30,000 service yesterday. Total cost was £155 (I get 10% loyalty discount at my dealers). I'm just a bit bemused by the cost of the oil filter -it actually cost more than the oil. £30? what's it made of, diamond-studded platinum?
    Otherwise, all's well. And, on the train back from Luton to Flitwick to pick it up, I got to see a fantastic sunset!

    I take it yours is the 3.0v6 diesel too? Its because its an Izuzu engine and not a vx one, I think saab garages do them cheaper as they also use this engine
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    that is the correct price for the filter, it's such a rip-off.

    reason for it as above

    When the warranty's ended (in April) I'll be looking elsewhere, to see who's cheapest.
    I know I'm old, but I remember when an oil filter was a fiver!

    I did not realise it was 30,000 miles in three years for a diesel, I’m sure mine is 60,000. I would be struggling stay within that limit over 3 years (I would need to get her serviced at least twice a year)

    Isn't it a 2 year / 30K miles service interval?

    My car was new on 01 June 2005 and due its first service on 31 May 2007 or 30K miles
    Ironically, the service indicator is showing the first service is due at 35K miles!
    I'm coming up on 20K miles and am going to book it in for an additional oil and filter change

    I'm on a 3 year / 120K mile maintenance contract, and have already been advised that my car will receive two services this year (30K and 60K miles), the remaining two years will each have one service
