Don't know what year your car is, but mine only goes up to 150 and thats a major one.

so the 160 one will be a 'standard' service

The report should tell you. Who's doing the service for you?

Yeah, man, should've done it yourself - way cheaper.

Canberra's almost got enough members to have a decent-sized cruise now. Feckin' awesome!

Interested in getting your car tinted, Brentos? I wanna see if i can get a group discount in Fyshwick. Trust me, it'll look awesome and they aren't too expensive.

with the age of the car, i wouldn't worry about the service book says.

a good inspection of the car will show you what it needs.

diff and gear oil need changing if dirty.
coolent and brake fluid need changing every 2 years, regardless ok KM done.
brakes need doing if worn
if you can't remember the last time the front wheel bearings were cleaned and greased, they'll need doing.
same goes for your fuel filter- if you can't remember, change it
adjust anything that is adjustable and clean anything that is cleanable.
