    Default new car

    i have just bought a 08 1.9cdti 150 15000 miles vectra from bsm,when i went to put my k&n filter in the air box was full of crap (tab butt, leaves,flies ect) and the air filter was dirty,now i thought that the filter would have been replaced in the service before i picked the car up, i rang bsm and they said the filter only needs changing every 40000 miles,but i am worried that the oil and filter might not have been done,should i get them to reservice the car

    thanks

    It's worth changing the oil and filter as many garages don't use the correct grade (5w30), they use 10w instead simply because a lot of other cars use it and it's what they have in stock.

    If the air filter was that bad then i would have thought it be worth taking it back & ask them for the equivilent in money for the filter, plus your time to swap it!!

    What do these guys do for a service?? 20k is when the car should be serviced, the air & oil/oil filter incl each time!!

    Look at the dipstick, new oil will be golden in colour. Old oil will be black.
