Thanks for the response and link.
I don’t mind taking it to a Seat dealer but thought it was a bit premature expecting an oil change after only 10 months.
It used to be necessary after the first 5,000 miles or so. Down to the inaccuracies in machining technology. Hence the breaking in period to prevent damaging your engine as bits and pieces rubbed more than they perhaps should. You’d change the oil to get all the metal filings out of the oil to save it clogging up your filters and stuff.

No I understand. But if you consider that in 41 days it will actually be less than 3 weeks early. Just get it done in 41 days or there abouts.

Just booked mine in for it's first service. Will be a year but only 4.5k miles. As 'Daily Meme' says it'll be oil/filter change but the tech (who I know is pretty switched on) will give it a good check over..... (I have promised him a run out in my TVR when allowed 😉)....

Cheers again guys, I’ve read about the fixed service schedules vs long life service.
I have no idea which my car was set at the factory but presume the former based on that service message.

Looking online it appears the oil service fixed price is £189, pretty steep if it’s literally just an oil and filter change.

In a similar situation a couple of months ago, my year-old '69' plate Golf being due it's first service at little over 4K miles.
Local VW dealer would have charged a fixed price of £184, so I found a nearer independent VAG outfit who quoted £48
less for the same service, using VW parts/approved oil and they uploaded the details to Volkswagen's service history
database, (supplying a print-out to confirm this had been done.)

A Griffith is my dream car but unfortunately, I don’t have a garage. I did a trackday in a Tuscan S some years ago - great and it blew away a Gallardo until it came to the corners where his stability control and 4wd helped him.
