Re: service cost bah :

I didnt put the car in garage after the oil change cos I noticed oil dripping.
A stain about 9 in wide developed on the ground.
The oil changer(trainee)took the filter off without draining the oil first.
Maybe thats the correct way,dunno.
A lot of oil went down the front onto a couple of sensors and their wiring and also collected in a wide groove in a metal crossmember.
In the end I had to clean it all off with paper towelling and a lot of arm bending/twisting.
I certainly needed more than Juan Sheet.It probably wouldnt do much harm, but I dont like grubby engines , oil and rubber(hoses got a few splashes) dont get on long term and if its left oil seems to pick up any dust thats going and form a nice cruddy coating.
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
