Re: Service Frequency

If you are on variable servicing intervals (ask supplying garage what they set) it depends on the use to which you put the car.

I have never found I have any trouble with P/X'ing any particular colour.

I think the 'I hate green cars' syndrome has all but disappeared. I only know one (now two) person who won't buy a green car and that is because his Mother didn't like green cars! Pathetic!
