We have been servicing Mclarens for many years now, we own our own 12c Spider for the last 5 years so we understand these cars very well, what we have found that whilst the Mclaren service sheets are very good they are not aimed as what the car actually needs.

The Mclaren official service sheets give us two lists of parts; one list compromising of parts and what mileage they need replacing at and one with parts to replace depending on age, it is very rare we see a car that actually ‘needs’ these parts replacing or has got to the mileage that they require replacing so we undertake a condition based servicing where we replace only those items that need to be replaced.

As a result we have created a service schedule which is determined by what the car needs both determined by age and usage, there are no ‘major’ or ‘minor’ services – these are terms created by less experienced operations in an attempt to keep it simple, what we prefer is to be more transparent and detail exactly what is included and what is needed at the respective correct times. This ensures your car is serviced both within accordance with Mclarens requirements (and thus ensures warranty compliance) but also means absolute peace of mind that you are looking after the car properly.

So, all of our services are split into an ‘Annual Service’ and then the items you will need to replace depending on mileage or age (whichever comes first). If you are unsure just give us a call, we will happily walk you through it.

ANNUAL SERVICE

This consists of a full vehicle heath check. A Bumper to bumper check of the entire vehicle. Throughout this check we note and photograph all issues and report back to the customer. All fluid levels are checked/topped up. This includes a full engine oil and filter replacement – we only use genuine Mclaren filters and Mclaren specification Mobil 1 oil.
Once the work is complete the car is test driven and fluid levels then re-checked. Time in workshop – 4 hours.

Our Annual Service costs £499.00

Brake fluid change

Mclaren recommended every 2/3 years which is a little vague, we advise more frequent replacement for cars going on track or before or after long Euro tours. We also recommend more frequent replacement for cars that are sat for long periods, brake fluid is hydroscopic (it absorbs water from the atmosphere) so long period of  storage mean the effectiveness can be affected. We only use high quality Motorsport spec DOT 5.1 fluid from AP Racing or Motul.

£134.99

Clutch oil & Filter

Recommended to be done every 20000 miles. We use the Mclaren spec FFL-4 Clutch oil, Nearly 10L of it!

Recommend to be done every 40000 miles.

£318.99
