Difference between MOT and minor service

Hi all.

The GS just had it's MOT done last week and need a minor service in the next 2 to 3 months.
I've been looking at the Motrio service for 99 at a main dealer but TBH, all the checks were done at MOT and I can re-do the checks myself for stuff like lights, wipers and tyres etc. All I need is an oil and filter change which National Tyres will do for 26 ish (Castrol Magnatec) and I can fit an air filter (which isn't included in the 99 service) for less than 10 from EuroCarParts. The Scenic does about 8k miles per year. It had it's full service (with diesel fuel filter) last year and I will do this again for next year.

I know it may affect the service history as garages don't usually stamp oil changes but if I'm keeping it for another 3 years at least, the car will be 7 years old and probably worth no more than 2k.

What do you all think?
