What's Included

We won’t carry out any extra work without your approval

Formula One Autocentres offer a Full Service and an Interim Service to meet the various needs of motorists.

We recommend that the Full Service is completed every 12,000 miles or every 12 months and the Interim Service is completed every 6,000 miles or every 6 months.

Most car owners service their car every 12 months or 12,000 miles - whichever comes sooner. Servicing proactively maintains your car, reducing the risk of a breakdown. Even if it is irregular, servicing can help maintain your car's value.

All Formula One Autocentres' servicing is carried out by fully trained technicians using only parts that match the quality of the manufacturer's original equipment. We'll Stamp your service logbook too, to ensure that your vehicle's service history is maintained.
