Hey guys I was parked next to a VR in the mall over the weekend and it had an Oil Stop service reminder in the window. First one I have seen on an R. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> Does anyone here go to OS or some version of it or are you guys all DIY people?

So? It's a volvo, we don't drive Ferrari's. Some people with the R are not enthusiasts at all and could careless where the car gets serviced as long as the oil is changed.

I've known the manager at my local Oil Can Henry's...He's a car enthusiast and makes sure my car gets treated well. <p>if I don't take it for service and get the oil changed at IPD..Then I get my own Mobile 1 and go to Oil can Henry. <p>It's mostly a time issue for me.

I bet I can change the oil on an R quicker than you driving to Oil can Henry getting it changed there and returning home. <p>I think I was under 15 minutes the last time I changed the oil in my R. That's from before even jacking the car up to start up.

And most of the folks I talk to here change their own oil, so when I saw a V70R getting the oil changed at a chain it struck me funny is all.

Re: (VOGZ)

I have only performed ONE oil change between the two Rs I have owned. I am more than capable, I just like getting them officially documented.

I used to go to jiffy lube until one of their teenage techs started my car after draining the old oil out and before putting the new oil in. This was 2 cars ago.
