Re: First Service

My Diesel GBT had its first 18,000 mile service this week. It included oil and filter (not part of normal service due to Euro 5 engine with oil degradation warning system). air filter and cabin pollen filter changes plus usual checks. total bill 207.
It is a small garage in Tutshill ear Chepstow (Fiat Dealer) and they do a thorough job.
Well happy.

Re: First Service

Watch out if you get to your 35,000 mile service.. before I traded my Sporting in at 34k, Fiat were quoting 560 for the service as it's a 'major' service

One of my reasons for trading it in!

Re: First Service

At 35K mine will no longer be under warranty so I will have no interest in buffering Fiats coffers and will have it serviced by a local garage who can do it for a fraction of the price.

Nice and thanks for feedback. Do you know if it is simply new lights or a revised/redesigned version ?

Hope you have not mist in your lights anymore

Re: First Service

The lights look new.No condensation at all in one light but I notice a tiny bit of misting in the other one!Very small but car is parked in sunlight.Unless it gets bigger I am hoping its all fixed.

Re: First Service

Nice ! Hope you'll never have mist anymore

I'll ask my mechanic at the first service if he know what to do to fix them, mine is sometimes a bit affected, too
