12 mins!!!!!!

For a full oil and filter change and whilst it was draining i also swapped the chip!

Not a scrath on me or the car! didnt have to get underneath....what all this raving about the 16V being hard!

Bring you oil and filter, change whist you wait!


Right, off to go take some pics!

Ta Ra!

Its not that hard is it. Did mine last week and took no time at all.

1st time round was a different story though! lol!

Yup, I did mine in about 10 minutes. If you reach under the inlet manifold and feel around a bit its pretty easy to change the filter.

The last garage I got to do it said they had to remove the radiator! WTF!!?
