Looking to service the 172 and wanna do it myself rather then the garage but im stuck on a few things to get oem parts? Or premium parts eg. oil ect. So could you recommend me.

Oil filter
Spark plugs
Air filter ( think im gonna go with pipercross panel filter though)
And anything else id need
Oil - Any decent fully synthetic 5w40 Opie Oils are usually a good one to go with

Oil Filter - Wests Renault, Dealer on here

Spark Plugs - NGK-R PFR6E-10 only use these usually found on ebay etc but again ask Wests Renualt.

Cabin Filter - West Renault can also supply these

Air Filter - Pipercross is a good panel filter entirely upto you as the standard one isnt bad.

All prices from Wests Renault can be found here:-***FREQUENTLY-ASKED-PRICES-UPDATED-FOR-2012

Tbh though with the fixed price servicing its a good idea to take it into account as you keep the stamps in the book going then. Which is always a good selling point.

Dont forget Cambelt is every 5years/72K whichever comes first.

Auxbelt is every 3years/36k i beileve.

Service book stamps are over-rated I think. I've got a <5 year old 197 and I'm self servicing.

Apart from major stuff like the cambelt, I'll be doing it myself. The amount of money i'll 'lose' when I come to sell it will be far less than the amount i've saved not paying someone else to do soemthing I am more than capable of doing myself.
