For servicing there is a sheet in the FAQ on here which shows you what needs doing when

I would go through what history you have against against that, then you can plan what needs doing when

Sorry what i was asking was if anyone has had an experience with sending their car in to cardiff honda for service work. Or if they would recommend a different honda(eg. Swansea) or a specialist.

also would like to get my car professional detailed rather than just cleaned by a man in a van

Try in pistonheads for detailing

Servicing you are better off taking the tasks in house (ie deciding what needs doing) and getting a specialist to do it than a Honda dealer imo. They don't see many S2s these days

Agree about Honda servicing. I'd go to a specialist. Although Honda Winchester did help me removed the security bolts from the ECU when I struggled which was fair play.

Hi,

Probably a bit of a trek for you being on the 'wrong' side of the bridge, but I take mine to Howards Honda in Weston-super-Mare. They've always been refreshingly honest with me and always done a decent job. As said above, its only worth going to a dealer if you value the Honda stamp in your book.

Hope this helps.

Or if you have an extended warranty (probably not in this case).

Having said that, my local dealer (nowhere near Wales) does a reasonable job at a reasonable price (MOT is included in servicing, for example). I get them to additional stuff to the oil change as required.
