153,710 covered

Purchased by me at 142,500 last september

My Uncle services it every 5,000 - he says the older engines need it every 5,000 despite what the manufacturers say of 12,000

Servicing every 5k on a hdi? why?. Yes i understand regular servicing is a must but that seems far to soon to me. The oil i use is very high quality semi synthetic. And like i said i service mine every 10 to 12,000 miles.

Mines on 136K in an D8 exec with the 2.0L turbo petrol. Every fourth tank is BP ultimate, I find it helps, but then it might just be me... :|

What, your car did 113,000 miles in it's first year but you've only done 6,000 in it since?

1998 2,1 td - 217,000km + god knows what in the 2 years the speedo was on the fritz.
2004 2,0 HDi - 89,000km (I think)

1991 Yamaha TDM850 - fuel leaks galore!
2008 Toyota Recall4 2.0 VVTI ATM LHD JTMBH31V90D007261 - flimsy piece of crap.
