Country specific deviations may apply.
I won't quote the full War and Peace but, this part probably is key.

I have the service history for my car which includes service/inspection and oil change obviously. A couple of messages have recently appeared for those points, 1 year and approx 2500 miles after the last. As my warranty has expired I do not fancy getting reamed at the dealer, so I will change the oil elsewhere. Until now it had annual oil and filter changes, currently on 19000 miles. A little excessive maybe but I think original owner may have bought an oil change package?? (8KL Oelserviceint. 15.000km/12months)

Quick question, 20i oil capacity is 5 litres? Another titbit not mentioned in the manual.
Yup N20 non x drive engines are 5 litres :thumbsup:
Main dealer prices for the "value" service for cars over three years old are not that bad. You get what you negotiate remember, not what you deserve.... Ask them and get them to drop their price with an Indy quotes or two.
Current: 2013 35is, Melbourne Red, DCT, Nav, Comfort pack
Gone: 2007 2.5is, Montego Blue, Auto, Nav

Negotiate? At the dealer? :rofl:

Equivalent of 130 quid at BMW Japan, 80 at the local shop (Halfords on steroids). 40 if I do it myself, which I usually do ....when I have a dipstick. My price is for Castrol Edge 5-40

Here's a question, when you take the oil filter off, there is small peg with o ring on. Does that hole go all the way to the sump?
