    Hello everyone :-)

    I currently have a 2012 Leon FR 1.4 tsi and its on a long life service plan. It is due a major service shortly and I am not sure to take it to a Seat dealer or somewhere else cheaper. Am i right in thinking it needs a major service every 2 years/20000 miles when its on long life plan? I have had the car 18 months and it was on long life when i bought it. I average about 12000 miles a year. I was tempted to get national to just do a oil change for 42 as the dealer major service is 279 :-( Thanks

    Its at 44000 miles so i would need to change the spark plugs maybe and never have done it before. I am capable of changing filters. Would I also need a computer to plug in to the car to reset service. Thanks for your comment

    If you want your timing chains to last, double up on your oil change interval.
    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.
