    Service done

    Forum Key Rings
    Well, the weather was good out, so I decided to crack on with the service before proper winter kicks in. Why do garages not bother changing a chewed up sump plug and that filter looks a bit sorry for itself?? Also, this is the reason I like K&N filters. Just give it a few whacks to get all the crud out till I next give it a decent oil wash. You can tell it works from the difference between the two sides. Anyways, all happy again

    Nice, it feels good to get it out the way and knowing that the job's been done how it should rather than hoping . Tomorrow I will be swapping the 20s to the 18s so I can give them a thorough wash and wax and probably the car a once over too, definitely needs one

    Yeah, pretty similar everywhere in the next few days. Will need to get as much done tomorrow as were meant to go to Alton Towers on Saturday but the weather isn't looking great

    Mine had a wash, didn't need a wax as the Fusso is still doing it's job. I didn't bother drying it, as it will be bucketing down tonight. Luckily the coat keeps it clean after a wash even if it rains so all good

    Cheers mate, I normally just let the garage do it but you really could save quite a bit of money doing it yourself. Plus I have given up on garages some time ago, just struggle to trust them nowadays. Small problem but as an example that sump plug I mentioned could have been replaced to avoid the headache of trying to remove it if had it rounded off completely. It's not too difficult to do, all you need is the right tools, correct service parts and knowledge of quantities etc. plus the friendly knowledgeable people on here as always for support. Basically, I saved almost 100 and I service it twice a year. Give it a go sometime, you might surprise yourself and feel good after doing it. I would borderline say I even enjoy it
