Completely crazy, they won’t win any BEV fans with those service intervals
Apart from Tesla, all manufacturers seem to be about the same though. That said, it is a crazy price considering most of it is just inspecting.

Mercedes are similar in their approach to servicing, Every 12 months or 16k miles, completely archaic v the competition and makes them expensive to own

I don’t believe on a 70K pounds car 250 quid for the service will stop buyers.

Don't forget the new wiper blades & the screenwash refill.

Small amounts of tax benefit influences a lot of purchases

90% of the labour is the wash & vac... 😀
They must be using premium grit in the sponge to offer additional scouring of the paintwork :eek:

I wonder if they still do the little puddle of oil on the undertray that drips onto your drive for the next month?

Circa £250 +/- £30.
A first service on my 2.0 XE was just under £400, so that's not bad really.
Bear in mind they don't even change the brake fluid or air filter on mine at 2 years, struggling to understand why it's that much to be honest.

Maybe the nice video of my own car and question about why my brakes were in such good condition were £100 each.

It looks to me as if they're scratching around to actually find anything that needs doing... £250 for replacing the brake fluid & a pollen filter is robbery.

The first proper service is at 105K.

kind of tempted too.
really depends on how I can be reimbursed for home charging.
Don't want to have to park up for a hr at a charging bay, just so I can stick it on my Co card
I think you can claim 4p a mile to charge at home.

Only cost me £399 for 3 services on the Volvo
I suppose the only real advantage I have is that on 2 yearly servicing I only have to pay out once on a 4 year PCH.
