I’d assume the things that are marked as ‘not done’ weren’t required on that interval. Surely no one is so dumb as to highlight the stuff the should have done but didn’t!

Ok so in 10 years and 80k miles the front brakes and rear brakes have only been 'serviced' once (and 1k miles apart). Pads or discs or both. On my 370 I used to have to dismantle the calipers i.e. remove the pins and pads and free things up and lubricate with Copperslip

I can only assume that this is a list of parts used not inspection/servicing/lubrication etc.

There is something named 'Vehicle Check' and that was done once at 75k miles. What can that be body for rot or electronic diagnostics or ?

Antifreeze changed?

Air-filter one mention

Something called a 'micro-filter' gets a lot of attention I assume that's cabin or could it be fuel?

These service records that people put so much faith in don't really tell you much. I like to see the 'tick-list' that the engineer completed.

This guys experience bears no relation to the car in question:

Guys do these semi-auto cars use a clutch and flywheel?

On this car and the previous one I saw at auction they have a reference to the Clutch and Flywheel work or inspection - I assume it was a recall.

Edit: done a bit of research - SMG.

I have just asked my son, and they do have a fly wheel, and with twin clutch plates. Apparently it is a manual box but it has features of an automatic.

If you want anymore information, I will send you my son's phone number as he is an enthusiast of them and he would certainly buy one of his own if he could get insured, so at the moment the only way he drives them is through the garage.

Best way I reckon - looney car with a F1 engine inside.

Like a McLaren F1 but take your grannie to the shops and seaside.

I don't think it is the actual engine they used in the F1 car Sean.

Pretty sure you're right John but a V10 configuration belies F1 tendencies....come to think of it, a lot of the Le Mans engines are V10s too.

I think it’s a safe place to put your money.

It’s a little more interesting than the Audi versions.

I’ve always had a thing for the Passat r36 estates. Very very rare though.
