Changed oil today at 13278 miles (had car 2 months) as I didn't fancy waiting for the 2yr/21k recommended period. Went to my local guys who do the things that I don't fancy tackling. Hardest part was taking off the Air Deflector under shield - getting all those bolts (18), screws (4) and studs (2) out, apart from that it was dead easy but it would be a pain attempting it just on axle stands. Oil was typically black coming out. The filter housing (just under top cover) was nice and clean inside and replacing filter a doddle. The original sump plug was strongly magnetic and had a fair bit of metal 'fluff' on it - replaced with a new 1. Also noticed the sump has a nice fluffy jacket. Engine takes 7 litres oil with filter change - put back 6.5 litres with dipstick showing oil half way between mid and max. Pictures below.

Cost: Castrol Oil at £15/litre, Filter (JLR) £16, plug (JLR) £6. Labour £30 :eek:.

That should keep the warranty happy. Might give the vacuum method a go next time.

Yes David, even JLR stealers do it. Looks easy compared to fiddling with all those bolts/screws. But wanted to do it via the sump for the 1st go - also gave me opportunity to get a look underneath.

Is the new sump plug you installed magnetic? Doesn't look like it has the extension like the original.
No, it's not. This is the plug JLR sold me. I would've reinserted the old one as it was obviously doing its job but as car is still under warranty I thought it best to use the new plug - just in case.

I thought they just pulled off and be swapped over onto the new one.
Obviously not Phil, more's the shame. Makes you wonder if the magnetic plug is just for new engines and not needed after 1st oil change - assuming they don't use top extraction method.
