Hi,

Here some statistics and metrics after our first service at 31400 incl. Oil analysis (first oil change):
Average fuel consumption: 7,7 l/100km
Average AddBlue consumption: 1,3 l/1000km
Oil dilution: 5,8%

Histogram of travel length:
0-10km 26,6%
10-30km 19,4%
30-70km 42,4%
70-200km 10,7%
200-500km 1,0%

Service counter:

It is interresting that at the time where the Service counter has not counted down we used the pre-heater before every trip. Maybe a helpfull info.

Oil check result: (sorry it’s german)

That’s interesting with the pre - heater , I’m guessing that’s upping the engine temp so that regeneration is working correctly almost straight from standstill , no cold journeys. . But then I’m thinking that pre- heater is just on till the engine is hot , so why does it make such a big difference over so many miles in a row. It’s almost like saying if the engine is never cold we don’t get oil dilution ??
Mmmm...

2017 Discovery Sport SE Tech. Bought November 2018, 10,500 miles, dealer serviced for 2 year 21,000 miles. Covered 8,400 miles, service indicator came on! Dealer response “It could be the filter (which one?) or oil viscosity problem (WTF does that mean 🙈)! May or may not be covered under warranty! Can I book it in for check, courtesy car not available to end of November, yet their forecourt littered with ex demonstrators.......time to p/x for a bike 🤬
Your car is pretty "average" according to the service poll and an audit of 98 user accounts about premature oil changes (8,306 miles) further up the thread. Depending on the status of N289 your estimated oil dilution is either 6% (not installed) or 10% (N289 installed). You need an oil and filter change either way,

The car has a systemic fault that can't be fixed and therefore, by rights, JLR should stump up, especially if you came into this believing that you would get 21K / 2 years between services. But what they are going to tell you - in all likelihood - is that you have used the wrong driving style and on that basis ask you to pay for the oil change. It is bollox of course but, hey, we are rich enough to drive Land Rovers, welcome to JLR.

Its happened thousands of times already and will keep happening until the cows come home. Thats you and me, btw, JLR's "cash cows". :D

Yep and everything he said is true, now with the new ved rates from April 2020 buying a JLR just doesn't make any sense at all :lol: as somebody has posted they are to little to late and rushing to catch up they make mistakes.

Anyone care top summarise the 2020 changes in VED for the various DS models / engines as a result of changing to WLTP from NEDC emissions figures?

I've Googled around but have failed miserably! All the LR and dealer sites say 'avoid by buying before April', but not what I'd be saving.

TBH I was hoping for a bit more than 'it's going up to £960'. What was the emissions, old vs new, what was the old tax rate, isn't it a band lower as the DS is now RDE2 compliant so isn't penalised, etc.

Apparently the 'up to £960' means tax is going up by a figure of 'up to' an additional £960, not that the tax is 'up to' a flat £960. Lovely phrasing there.

So had 2nd biennial service last September at 43700 miles. Have now turned 48k and service required on dash. Will this be down to dilution? Also how likely is my main dealer (Carr’s) to cover it?
