    All of these could help:

    500 4k service
    1st service
    Costs?
    AGP for good measure

    Kent? Giving GH @ romford a shout would also tell you what a main Abarth dealer service would cost.

    I've just been quoted £272 for my 1st Service in June. My car has done 15,000

    That's:
    Filters (Pollen, oil and fuel)
    New sparkplugs
    Oil (Selenia)

    A tad expensive I think on the old labour as those parts are cheap to purchase seperately.

    Had mine done a few weeks ago, same mileage as yours and same parts/work but i paid closer to £400!  :o

    I've been talking to my local dealer about this - Research Abarth Nuneaton.

    I was told that the prices depend on the amount of miles the car has done, according to the Servicing Manager there is two levels of service.

    1. Low Mileage Service - This is for 10,000 miles or less and will cost £122.00 inc VAT

    2. Major Service - This is apparently done at 18,000 miles and will cost £279.05 inc VAT

    My car is due in a few days time so I am trying to get it booked in at the minute.

    If you are after and further details I can give you the contact details for the Service Mananger if you wish.  :thumb:

    I got a quote for service plans over 3 years from both Glyn Hopkin and Lipscomb.  Both were over £1000 for 3 years servicing, excluding parts an' that.

    I chose not to go for the plan in the end.  It just seems so expensive for what they're actually doing, and when I emailed Honest John (Daily Telegraph), he said he had no idea how they could justify that.

    I've just been quoted £100 + VAT for my first service at a Fiat Specialist in Birmingham.

    Think I'll be going there and saving myself £170.

    18000 miles but if you do less than 6000(500) or 10000(AGP) per year you will need oil and filter at 1 year. see service book for exact schedule
