First of all, amazing site. I've been wanting to post this for a while now, but every time I search I keep getting distracted reading other posts, so hopefully this is not a common query! Long story short time, 58 plate 1.6 TDCi DPF focus, purchased it with 17k on the clock almost a year ago, about to do 27k. It's about to have it's third service (looks like it wasn't used for the first six months, first service mid-2010, which accounts for it's low mileage), and I can see from ETIS that third service is meant to be a full one. Now from what I can see, the major difference between the interim and full service is the topping up of the EOLYS fluid, which surely is dependant on mileage, not age?
So, I would appreciate advice on the following please:
Based on car age and mileage, do I go for an interim or full service?
What should I expect to pay for each of the services?
I understand going to an indy might be a better option? Any suggestions for the north-west (Rochdale)?
Will going to an indy compromise the "service history"?
Hope these questions aren't too stupid. Love my Focus, and just want to make sure I take good care of her! Thanks in advance.
