    Default 1st service

    I have an 07 1.9CDTi (crappy 120) and recently its come up with "INSP 1000".
    Read the book and apparently its due an oil service as they allegedly have variable oil servicing now (didn't know that).
    Thing is, there are about 60 of these on the company fleet, guess whose car has come up for service first.........at only 11,000 miles! One lad has 18K on his and nothing.
    Kinda shows the grief mine gets.

    Anyone else had theirs come up with INSP any sooner?

    nah, now I just have to make it hit second service in LESS than 12K

    TBH I have told them its a bag of poo since it arrived, the only things I like are the colour and the space. If they had ordered what I asked for it wouldn't have been abused so much.

    got me thinking. My Cooper S had variable servicing, I drag raced, track day'd and generally mullered that car everywhere, and it didn't need a 12K oil service......(it did have 2 in between but the computer didn't know) waited until 18K before sending me to the dealer

    Each time you did a service, without resetting the service interval, the EMS will have noticed the cleaner oil
    As a result the service interval will have become extended as a result
    However, even with clean oil eventually the EMS will have counted down to the time interval rather than the mileage interval... or it should have!

    After my Vectra is next serviced I have a voucher for "free" oil and filter change, which I am going to use at about 10K miles after that service
    It will be interesting to see how this affects it!

    being totally honest I'm happy its due a service sooner rather than later. I HATE cars going more than 10K between oil changes (no real choice as its a company car) as you should see the state of the stuff when its changed at 20K!
    My old classic mini woudl run clear golden oil when I changed it every 4k from new. The car never went wrong and sounded sweet as a nut. Look after a car it'll look after you.
