    probably only the same as any major service:
    oil & filter, plugs, air & fuel filter, and brake fluid.

    Certainly better than mine.

    My 150 goes in for its 40k or 2 yr service whichever comes first, in my case the 2yrs on 1st December at the stealers in Worcester.
    Its the first date they can loan me a courtesy car, their price for a 2 years service is £239 :-(
    Bearing in mind they charged about £140 quid for its 20k, what extra do they do on this 2 year service to justify the extra dosh.

    Phone the dealer who sold the car to the first owner and ask if they serviced it - if you can piece together some evidence of past servicing it'll help come resale time - if it looks like your car didn't have an oil change for 45000 miles, that's bad news.

    40k and no oil change?, that aint good! I would have had 4 oil changes by then! surely it would have had at least 1 or 2?
    just had my 2nd annual service on my 06 1.8 and it was 175 quid. mind you I have to go back to get them to put the right oil in tomorrow!a major ( not interim ) service should be all the filters & brake fluid & plugs changed, and brakes discs/pads/shoeschecked and coolant checked, as well as the so called inspection .......if they bother........
    Surely your brakes must be shot by now if youve done 40k on the same pads?
