    Service Plan

    Booked car in for its second service as indicator shows its due within 300 miles, car has done 19,100.
    Service receptionist advised getting it done prompt as to qualify for the second free service the car must not have done more than 20k.
    Missed this on the small print so thought I'd bring this to everyone's attention.

    Even better, service it properly at 9300 miles and 365 days and tell the dealer to stuff their stupid service intervals which are only designed to sell new cars and not look after the car.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    There does seem to be a conflict between the instructions in the Service Manual (for those whose cars are old enough to still have them) and the service reminder from the car itself! The Service Manual says the service is due after 10,000 miles, while the car is happily calculating in metric and saying it needs to be done after 15,000 kilometres (which is of course only 9,320.5 miles!

    I'd think the legal contract is the one quoting miles!
