    the car is telling you it's 1,000 miles from needing a service...thats all...

    Use good quality 5W30 Fully synthetic longlife oil ( avaliable from VX or your local motor factors).. don't be tempted by using anything else...

    the oil level is indicated in atotally different way, so rest assured it's just the service reminder.

    i will check to oil anyway, but very strange though as the car was last serviced by the ex owner last august on 60000 and now has only done 63000.
    very strange unless the garage has made up the service history. i will check the oil to be safe as well lol. many thanks

    best bet is to service it now , so you KNOW it's been done, reset the light and away you go in confidence..
