Official oil and filter and plugs cost less than 100, take them to a local garage and get them to service it and it should be under 200

I service my own car as its a pretty simple job to do.

If you leave it it goes out by itself after a few hundred miles, Ive always thought the service intervals are too far apart and tend to oil change at 10k-12k not the 18k my computer says.

A lot of people have this issue and the answer is easy but can be frightening first time

Undo all the pipes connecting  to the filter and unbolt it then it's a case of wiggling and pulling, it's connected to rubber mounts that clip in so you need a bit of force to get it off.

Be brave and it will pop off

Changed mine over (new discs and pads) all round at about 35k but I am a motorway drive, the rear discs where a nightmare to change and the calipers need a special tool to wind them down.

The fronts were a doddle.

Yup 3 litres of the abarth oil, some use the 5-50 but I use the 10 as it stands up better to all the motorway driving I do. the Oil filter is a bit fiddly but persevere and you will get it out.

I am so sorry bud that is terrible news, cant imagine how you are feeling right now,

I hope they find it and remove the hearts from the thieves while they are still alive.
