    you'll need to check/replace Air filter, Pollen Filter, Oil filter, Oil, new oil sump plug washer, Spark Plugs (if petrol), Brake pads, If you want to go OTT you could change your coolant. Check all levels and tyre pressure and condition.

    Vehicle : VXR Estate

    Trim : VXR

    You will also need to replace the Fuel Filter(petrol) if required.
    All depends on mileage/age last service was done, but personally if youve
    not long had the car do it all for peace of mind you know its all been done then.
    Have you got the tools required, cos this list could then get awkward.
    45 TORX for sump plug etc

    Would be a good idea to also get a new sump plug, just incase..
