    Car was going to the dealer up to 230.000KM, so is there a way to check it or better be safe than sorry and just do it?

    This seems rather complex to do so take it to my dreaded NL dealer?
    What would the price be kinda for this so I don't get ripped off
    Hi, some dealers have a fixed price for these sort of jobs on cars over 3 years old, might be worth asking. Phil

    Get the bare minimum done for the stamp and do the rest yourself. No reason you could not take it to an independent an have them stamp it. Not sure what that will do to the resale value vs what you save?

    Thee weeks ago I paid $340 (about 160 GB pounds) to have all four rotors renewed, all four sets of pads renewed, the brake fluid drained and renewed, and an engine oil & filter change.
    Admittedly I supplied all the parts fluid and oil, this was labour only, but again the moral of the story is that a good independent can do the job just as well as a dealer for a fraction of the labour cost. I shudder to think what my local stealership would have charged for this labour, well over $1,000 AU in my guestimation.

    HOW MUCH!?

    For brake fluid change and rear pads??

    I hope they're gold plated pads and unicorn tears for fluid.

    Honestly you've been proper had there! I'd expect any other garage to do that for about 100 Max and that's for the xfr pads.

    Air con seems on the expensive side too presuming it's just a leak test and recharge. Again that's normally about 30-40 quid.

    Welcome Mikeyp.

    Yes, around here we are also signed on to the "replace your transmission fluid at 60k mile intervals" mantra. I simply do not understand why Jaguar or LR don't put it into the service schedules. "Sealed for life" = a short life.

    Mind you - Jaguar have form - the transfer boxes on AWD X types were the same.

    Transmission should be serviced much earlier than 10 years.
    check this blog out, it explains it well!!!

    Did anyone let a dealer do the gearbox oil change (no 19), and what did you pay for it in that case?

    There you go, thought the cost was a bit steep. The extras explain the rest.

    What Work did they do besides as a B service should only be about 300

    I changed item 19 on purpose. I'll correct item 11. Thanks for the feedback.

    Yes gourmetsaint, it is correct except for item 11 which should be A service only. Jaguar say to do the transmission fluid every ten years but wise owners should do it much earlier. The 5 years depends on the mileage really.

    Hmm... why is there such a difference in item 19 in the two posts above? 10 years / 150k miles or 5 years / 120k km?
