After getting a fright by what the Local Nissan dealers were wanting for an M3 service been thinking off doing a DIY service and looked around ebay at some off the various service kits available, comments re the following one for sale ??
 car is on around 28500 miles and would like to get this done soon. take it from the looks off things the only thing that would also be required would  be the oil itself ??

Interesting to see the Ebay description that fitting of their filters will not affect your warranty.  Any DIY servicing will violate the warranty T&Cs as the parts need to be fitted by 'qualified' mechanics.

Yes okay thanks should have said that car is now out off warranty and well to be honest as long as I know its being actually receiving its service am not particularly bothered that its not going to have a nissan stamp within the book.
 
to be honest from looking at the link I put up I think buying the bits and pieces seperatly could well prove a better buy, genuine nissan filters , ngk spark plugs etc, pollen filter - actually required ??!!
 
used to get a lot off parts for my old car- subaru impreza wrx from Importcarparts who sold genuine dealer  parts at a fraction off the dealer prices, will see if they can supply nissan parts.
 
oil - will do a search on here but staying within this thread, rough price off decent oil for the oil change in a 1.6 petrol ???

Agree the servicing is a bit on the steep side, got my 3 year service due in a couple of weeks now. I know I'll need 2 new front tyres ( after only 15K miles ) so it will be hefty! In all fairness though I've never had any issues in-between services, and have always been given a courtesy car without asking for it.

Servicing last year costs a total of £380 Shocked, I had to sit down as I turned pale, which is saying something as both my parents are from the Caribbean! LOL


Peace

My last QQ  1.6 petrol was on a fixed service agreement paid at purchase of car! from dealer.
1st service no problems. 2nd service no problems except for the "recommended pollen filter and brake fluid change " not being included and so began the list of exclusions.to upfront deal. i took the fluid change for safety reasons and not too dear ,left the filter whilst I researched into it or how to change it over. Got an upgrade QQ offer / deal a few months later. I bet they never did the pollen filter before selling that 1st QQ on.
 I am sure the left me with a litre of oil to top up as part of last service ,if i find it in shed I will put details on line for you later today  good luck!

Hi jono,   my car was serviced a uncle arnolds nissan dealership livingston. Looked for top up kit they put in car and now its even more confusing.Confused I had never opened it up -its a blue bag with a shell helix advert on outside - now inside it is a plastic bag with a cardboard funnel also marked shell helix oils, a paper towel and disposable gloves.
plus one litre of engine oil. engine oil is HAVOLINE brand! Questionextra 10w-40 part synthetic ,says on it suitable for standard and turbocharged petrol diesel and lpg.
Thing is shell is a Dutch company, Havoline is part of Chevron a US giant. dont know how that came about maybe someone switched it out or what. dont suppose I have been any help then ! Sorry friend nothing is straight forward these days. hope someone else can define the oil for you.

Had a quick look on internet and noted that Glyn Hopkins sells a kit with oil excluding spark plugs for around £37.00 and they are part of this forum I think. best of luck.

Thats what Westway call a "Level Service" I assume - the prices are the same...

Rang my dealer after getting those quotes from Westway Southampton (closest to me) and was told "yes sir, we do the Level Service" but its only applicable to Petrol cars"

Whats that all about??

Nige65, can you put a link up to that page please if poss - my dealer is really starting to p155 me off now!!

Edit
No need for link - the "Read More" was still live...

Sorry Jono, it was a private seller who bought the wrong ones for their car!
Must have been right place right time and no one else wanted them! Max bid £30 but got them £18.50 inc p&p.
As I have just put on another post, bargains to be had on ebay but just shop around!

As long as your vehicle is a petrol version the 10/40w semi synthetic is the correct oil for your vehicle. You could upgrade to the Nissan 5/30w DPF oil which is higher specification, but not necessary.

I hope this helps.
