Put it this way castrol edge £35 4ltrs oil filter £14.00 takes 1/2 hour lower cover about ten screws work it out.

And I would wait bit longer unless your doing motorway mileage up to you

I'd say that with that low a mileage you should be on fixed interval servicing, not Long Life, so get it done now, and certainly don't wait another year. It's not much of an investment against the cost of the car, and that price is a typical indie price for oil and filter.

I'm in west Yorkshire I got a full service on my sportback air filter. Oil filter fuel filter and oil im talking oem parts at an indie £130 inc vat it's not about being tight with the cash...ive just done my own rear shocks. Front discs and pads now I'm technically minded but its pays to shop around.

What does the mmi say? If you are under 10k miles a year you should be on a fixed 12 month service. If you don't service when the mmi says to and something happens you void the warranty.

This is baffling to me.
Your car is 1 year old from new and done 3500 miles. Variable servicing is IIRC 19000 miles/2 years, but your car should be on fixed annual servicing like mine where first one is an oil change then second one is oil change plus inspection.

There is only 2 options - fixed at 9000/1 year and variable at 19000/2 years.
Fixed is for low mileage cars doing lots of short journeys, and variable is for higher mileage cars generally doing longer motorway journeys.
It is originally set either at the factory or during the PDI, but can be changed by a dealer at your request.

If I were you I'd just contact either the main dealership or indy and tell them the age of the car and mileage, get the 1st service done and have them reset the mmi to a yearly/set schedule. Once the 1st service has been done, the mmi will then be reset to show 12 month to the next service and inspection.

This was mine last year a few months before the 2nd service was due.

Once the second service had been done in late October it showed oil - 12 months, inspection 24 months.

As of today it shows:
140 days for the oil which is October 28th 2020 (this will then be reset to show it needs doing in 12 months time)
505 days for the inspection which is 28 October 2021

Because of my low miles he has said this years service will be oil/filter/pollen filter/mot £273 (that's indy price not main dealership).
