Hi all,

Wondered what any of you fellow R owners have been charged for a service. Message on my dash to say 8weeks notice. Guessing this will be oil and spark plugs done.

Thanks in advance

I service my cars every year regardless of mileage.
I got my RCZ last may and did a service myself (plugs, air filter, cabin filter)barring the oil and filter. Which was £50. I've just had it done again last week after 9k.
I'll probably get it done in another 9/10k.
If it was a diesel I wouldn't worry so much, but given how the thp will break if you look at it funny I'd rather prevent a problem than fix one.
I'm also going to change the gearbox oil next week, if it stops raining.

Spark plugs on the RCZ-R are every year and you can only get them as oem.

If you PM me your Vin number and email address I will have a look at the peugeot service website and email you a pdf of when and what requires changing and also correct grade of oil for your engine.

I got a 5 year service plan within the first year (I paid in full) and only paid £13.99 per month equivalent.
That covers everything on a scheduled service, so not cost me a penny more from a main dealer.

I just had a major service, brake fluid change and air con regas and it came to just under £300.

The Major service on its own was £195.

This is incorrect. The RCZ R has an interval of max 20.000 km between oil changes. And I recommend to shorten it down to 15.000 km. The turbo on the R runs very, very hot thus putting additional pressure and stress on the engine oil.
RCZ R in red. driven daily. and driven hard.

I'm sure my car says 20,000 miles or 12 months.

Not that it matters too much, its had 4 services in 4 years anyway and its done 43k miles.
