    Disco S1 Servicing

    Hi There, I have a 1997 S1 Disco V8i Auto. It is now reaching 155k and is due a service(major I think). Last place I took it to was Graham Coopers (very good, but out the way), is there anyone else in Sydney (pref Norther Shore) that you would recommend. Also How much should I be looking to fork out on a major service. Car has no issues, drives well.

    Thanks

    There is nothing on a V8 disco you cant do yourself, if you are having no problems then just change fluids and filters etc.

    Thanks for the Info, The quote I was getting for a Major Service was around $1000 and since I now have a new born bub, I just don't have that kind of money to throw around. IS there anywhere I can get a decent checklist of things I should check and replace as part of the Services ??

    Cheers

    What were you actually going to get for your $1000 major service, seems excessive to me, Regards Frank.

    They said everything that Land Rover would do, so I would be expecting nothing much for my money !!!

    How technically challenged do you need to be to carry out your own servicing ? and are there any special tools I would require. The more money I can save the more mods the disco gets :-)
