Hi Simon

Depends on whether the Cambelt has been changed in any previous services ?? A Major Service is required at 45K miles which includes the Cambelt and all fluids filters etc.

That will be classed as the 60k service i think... the 60k official service is a big one and normally costs in the region of 500 from a scoob dealer.

Would be cheaper if you went else where but i guess its dependant on any warrenty you have?

Let us know how it goes on

Excellent news Si - then you are only needing the interim service - IIRC oil and air filter change I believe ?? Shouldn't be much more than 100ish ??

Well the 3 brands of oil generally used are -

Motul 300V 15W/50
Mobil 1Motorsport 15W/50
Castrol RS 10W/60

I personally use the Motul stuff - as it is the best (for me) for quietening down the engine. Others that I have used are Silkolene and MIllers both being 10W/60. All of these oils are fully synthetic.

Hope this helps ?

Gareth,

that 60K service that cost a pretty penny is also a mojor service.
there are 2 different major services on the car, 30K intervals which are all fluids (diff, gearbox, the works) and the 45K intervals which is the belt interval.
As a result, the 90K service is well expensive as it is both a 30k and a 45k interval :shock:

save yourself a ton of money..

buy the parts outright and do 'most' of the service yourself.
have the dealership do only what you cannot sort at home

saves tons. most of what they do is simple enough to sort in your own garage with minimal tools..


ahhh and i run the Castrol 10/60 as well

cheers
Jamie

Agree with Jamie - I also do a lot of the servicing of my Scoob myself. Save lots of s this way and I can rest safe in the knowledge that I am using the recommended oil, plugs, fitler etc etc.

The more advanced stuff I leave alone (cambelt for example) but I have a friend who does this at a very reasonable price. I keep all receipts and history of what I do and when

It isn't as difficult as the dealers will have you believe
