Rare occasion I know, but decided to treat the car to a service at the hands of somebody else for a change.

Couple of reasons for it really,

1- I've done a lot to the car myself and I'm not an expert so always like to get things checked over from time to time
2- Jonny at Performance Autocare has been very helpful in the last year remotely with help/advice so would like to send some work his way
3- On top of the usual fluids/filters, I've asked Jonny to check the valve clearances for me, no particular reason other than to say it has been done. If adjustment is needed, it's much easier with a special Toyota tool (which I don't have) so it's as well to let Jonny take care of it

Decided to give MOT a miss and do it in Spring instead, it was a bit annoying doing it late in the year so will offset it a few months so it's done at the start of a season instead.

I'm building the job list for the Winter, so anything that gets highlighted can get tagged on. Happy days :thumbup:
