a cheap way to service a car yourself is to:- after an MOT, which you gotta have anyway, go to a kwik fit/tyre place and get an oil and filter change-it costs about 30, they get dirty and dispose of the oil for you, time you buy oil and a filter its gonna be nearly 20 anyway, then buy plugs and air filter and replace them yourself-only take you about 30 mins. And as it had an MOT, the car was fully checked over like on a service with the bonus of 12 months ticket.
some garages will stamp your service book with an oil service stamp and you can staple the receipts for plugs and filter to it, maintaining its history.

It would be wise to remove the wheels and check the brakes too as this isn't done as part of an MOT.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
