TIME FOR SERVICE has just appeared in the display, the car has got just over 65k on it. Is this a biggie? What exactly will this service include?
My rear pads and discs desperately need replacing , air con needs fixing and it needs tax and MOTing next month :eek: . Other than that its fine:roll: . I know its unavoidable on any car but Im a bit P'd off at the moment . Id rather spend that money on modding it;) . Thanks for any info Baz

I want to get mine looking like this one day..nice and understated
