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.

I booked in for my service next week. Major service £257. Was told they usually do a major service every 2 years and a minor the years between. The service history log I have from previous owner would suggest this has been the case from new.

Well my R is in for service today, Major service including pollen charcoal filters, spark plugs and brake fluid changed...
Must be gold plated cos its £386 from my usual Pug dealer. Plus it's getting it's first MOT but that's not included in that price it's £37.50 extra.
Asked for a three year service schedule / payment plan like TiaNorth but they are wanting £684 or £23.56 for 29 payments. This will get me 1 major service as above plus two intermediate services without plugs ( Chris I know they are need replacing each year, but they said cos I only do approx 5k miles year, get plugs every second year ? ) So, that's like £150 per minor service and then £384 for the major ? what's the thoughts on the forum?
Cheers. :beer:

Why don't you service the car yourself and save a bucket load of cash .

Firstly Stu8, it is still under manufacturers warranty, and secondly since it is the R and I want to retain as much value in it as I can, I want it to have the Peugeot service stamps. I will do general maintenance jobs, but servicing will be left to Peugeot.

I'm not as confident as taking a car engine apart as I am of splitting a motorbike engine, I think it has something to do with the fact I can get to both sides of a bike and manage to lower the engine easily, but take a look in any modern car engine bay and it's pretty mind blowing. Plus if I knacker anything up on the Z it's mega bucks.

But the main reason is retail value on resale without the service history.

Cheers !! :beer:

I've serviced my RCZ and done the gearbox oil.
It got the lot when I first got it last May, and had an oil and filter in January, gearbox oil in Feb some time.
