    Had an intermediate service done today after 18k miles. My indie said the Oil was like sludge and advised to have another oil change in 10k miles as in their opinion 18k miles is too long to wait for an oil change. They also mentioned Sol-X helps with keeping the DPF clean & lumpy idlling- so I...

    How much is a major service (not the 66,000 one) likely to cost at an indie? I know this will vary, but is there a ball park figure? I'm either going to an indie in Sheffield or Leicester. I'm guessing around £200. I've a Saab main dealer which is very handy, though I'd expect prices there to...

    Found my way yesterday to this Saab Indie specialist (see below) and had a good chat with co-owner Steve. Very personable Scottish guy, and the set-up as a whole inspired confidence.
