Its only coz i thort if i get the oil,air,fuel and pollen filters and spark plugs changed im not paying excess amount because its the advised service because they charge differently dont they i.e first,sec an third service so they wont be getting to much money from me haha

Doing the air+oil filters and oil change yourself can be very cost effective; e.g

Focus Mk2.5 1.6Tdci 5yr interim service at a Ford dealer should have cost £177, but I did the oil+air filters and the oil change myself. The result was the service cost £83, which after factoring in what I paid for the bits meant I saved about £60.

N.B. I asked about the service cost before I let them know I'd done some of it myself. :rolleyes:

interim normally is every 1 and 2, then third is normally full service. perhaps as the ST is an untamed beast it needs the extra lovin'?

Isn't that the same pattern as what I just said? :lol:

I thought it was but your third year read as if they did a major and a minor together? where you said "an an interim service every year" :p

now either I am drunk (unlikely) or just too tired (much more realistic) that the way you said it, is not the way my eyes and brain interpreted it :p
