    Default first service

    just picked car(2.2 direct sri) up from local stealer after the its first service £141 which didn't seem to bad.
    just noticed they used 10/40 shell helix plus the book say's 5/30 is it worth
    saying anything to them.
    The reason i took it to them was to build up a little history with the dealer
    as the car was a motorpoint speacial with 2.5k on the clock but no service book or bills etc etc etc.
    Also is the k&n panel filter worth fitting and does anyone know of a breakers as
    the dog chewed the rear door panel across the top and they are £250 quid!!!!.


    Cheers Guys

    Yes, they've used the wrong oil, request a rebooking to replace the oil
    Shouldn't be any need to replace the oil filter

    it's the wrong oil grade.. they have used cheap oil to gain a bigger profit.... if you do leave it in, it will only be any good for 8-10,000 miles..

    the 2.2 responds well to having the panel filter and airbox mod fitted.. gets rid of a flatspot around 2.5K RPM

    as for the interior..put the dog in to boot.. .. and it will have to be a dismantlers/breakers yard hunt..
