Just wondering if anyone has had a 1st Yr service on the Cupra yet? As i'm just phoning around, and the cheapest price i've been given is £180!:cry: to me that sounds very expensive for a 1st yr as they don't really change much so i can't see if taking very long.

Pickd up a a 59 plate Exeo 143 TDi yesterday. It has only done 5k miles, but the dealer advice is at odds with the service diplay regarding service interval, long term vs fixed.
