    Oil change, how often

    look at it this way, oil and filters are cheap, engine internals such as timing chains etc are not. Make what you want of it, There really isn't a right or wrong answer. I'm just boring so like to play it as safe as i can.

    Oil change, how often

    Do remember oil does also tend to degrade and start to lose it's lubricating properties over time. My 2010 k12 does less than 2000 miles a year as i have other cars, however i still give it a oil and filter service every 12 months to keep it mint.

    Hi David, No my usb has not played up yet, you could try giving the port a blast with electrical contact cleaner or wet a cotton bud with isopropyl alcohol and insert it into the USB port to clean out dust and any sticky mess. Wipe all around the inside of the port, including on the contacts
