    servicing

    bought my car when it had 98500 miles on it and the blokey told me that it didnt need servicing for a while(115k or dec 07) which is exactly what it says in the service book, but it has now done 102k and the service button says that servicing is needed in 4100 miles,when looking through all the receipts it got converted to long life servicing when the cam belt was fitted at 78k so would the service light been converted to 20k intervals or will that still be on12k? is there any way of changing to 20k, and do i deffo need to sevice it when the sevice light comes on?

    just thinking, to be honest, i would change the oil every 10k anyway. 20k is a long time to not change oil, especially on a 100k plus engine.
