Any tips for the first service?

Hi, my spider is coming up for its first service. I've done 8400 miles in 11 months, so it's a race as to whether the year is up before the 9000 service interval (which is rather short by modern standards I think).

Any tips on cost? I live near Derby now so Stoneacre look like my nearest Fiat main dealer.

Re: Any tips for the first service?

Thought I'd share my experience. Had my service done at Stoneacre, Derby and it was great! It was done at 9100 miles and 11months old. New oil and oil filter and the car idles more smoothly now interestingly.

Tyres are 6mm at the front, 5.5 at the rear. That implies the fronts will last another 18k miles if tyre wear is linear! I guess the car is light, so maybe tyre wear is a little less than on heavier cars? But I don't hand around in it, so I really thought I would have had less remaining.

Usual free wash and vac, but they did a very good job of that.
