Afternoon Chaps and Chapettes!

Just been handed £100 in Halfords vouchers for a competiton I won at work :D

So... I'm gonna service my car tonight.

Having a mind blank at the mo but heres what I've got on my list for a thorough service, and I'm getting the stuff tonight.

  • Oil
  • Oil Filter
  • Air Filter
  • Fuel Filter
  • Spark Plugs
  • HT Leads
  • Brake Fluid
  • Power Steering Fluid
  • Coolant


Anyone think of anything i'm missing...? scratch

Most of the stuff doesn't need doing, as the previous owner did it before I bought it back in March. I'm kinda doing it for peace of mind as it's the first time I've serviced this car, and it's better to cover everything, so I know it's done, and he hasn't scrimped and saved.

Oh and It's a 1996 Auto 2.0 8v Mk3 Golf.

Cheers guys! :D

I got those... Weird thing to have free with oil -- you'd expect a free filter or something!? Smile
