    Default Do your own diesel servicing??

    Anybody have a checklist for what gets done at the various services and is there any reason why I shouldn't service my own '03 2.2dti signum.

    On the subject of servicing, I had a call from Marshals the other day to tell me my car was due a service so I enquired about the price £240 +VAT came the reply 'OK what do you do for that? Oil, filter check this check that, change the SPARKPLUGS! at that point I said my goodbyes

    If the car is out of warranty I'd go to an independent, it will save about £120, find a good recommended local garage and check with them,
