    Well some are Really fussy When it comes to car Maintenance , they are Way ahead of the rest of us , Take Frank for instance . Man Bestows Love on His car . and we all Admire him for Doing so . He puts the rest of us to Shame and others like Him might say change out spark plugs at say 60,000 miles

    Buddy I think that neither you or I should be high jacking this thread because of our opinions and as such I feel that it’s only right to agree to disagree however it’s you’re choice

The second service was a JAG Indy and I likewise didnít quiz him although he did change the plugs as well as the other A stuff. In truth I donít think he knew the difference between A and B but looks like very little from your post. So Iím now due a service and may well take it to him again.

    Weirdly there is not much of a breakdown of the items you mention in the service book. Also weirdly the service book is a generic book for several types of Jaguar (however the main thing for me is seeing that all is present and correct ie stamped).

    Plugs and belts might be more involved but could be within the abilities of many home mechanics.

    They are basically oil/filter changes + a bunch of inspections.
    The only difference between them is the 'B' service adds:
    - Check Battery water and replace pollen (cabin) air filter.
    Had my B service recently and they confirmed that the difference was the pollen filter being replaced. Main dealer price was £350, including video inspection of the underside of the car.
