Difference between MOT and minor service
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
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
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?
