    Hmmmm.. 4th service (assuming 4 years)

    As well as oil & filters, they should be replacing brake fluid every 2 years, and it's probably due a cambelt change too. But I'd bet they haven't included those in the price...

    Is that at a dealer on an independent?

    Cam belt is recommended every 80k IIRC, but IMO you'd be mad to wait that long. General opinion seems to be 40k or 4 years, and replace waterpump while the engine's in bits.... and cambelt failure is a big issue, it's not worth putting off.

    I'd check whether they're including brake fluid change in that price - they should be, I can't think what else they'd be doing on a major service.
