Will all depend on the Thrashing She gets. :chuckle:
My car had 21500 odd miles on the clock when I did the 36 month recently at Litchfields. Everything was done of course, why would I try to save a few hundred quid when this may come back to bite me either in the form of reduced resale value potentially, or that the car does not perform as planned in some area? If the difference was phenomenal I can see your point especially if you are doing 2k miles per year - however I sold several cars over the last 2-3 years because I wasn't using them enough - I wouldn't bother owning a car that I didn't use regardless of maintenance cost....Indeed! That is partly the reason for the thread to gauge this sort of opinion. There seems to be a healthy split on the issue.
However, the cost of the "full" 36000 mile service (I'll be on about 18000 miles by the time it comes around) is substantial. I wonder how many will do everything on the list?
It's a problem for me as I don't do a lot of miles due to work , Company car and an adictive motorbike . I'm tempted to go for annual services but resale / residuals come into play , even though I've no intention of selling....My big concern with switching to yearly is resale value, I know when I was looking recently as a newbie to GT-R's I was put off by cars which had missed services even at low mileage.
It does seem daft though, given that the new cars are on a 12mth schedule
