    Ad my C180 serviced (A3 + service) only 1600 miles ago, I believe my service intervals are supposed to be 1 year 15,000 miles. Anyway Assyst is now showing next service (B1) due in 7400 miles.... What gives? Did they set it up wrong or is the car throwing a wobbly?

    Probably Assyst was set up wrongly at last service.

    When reset, they should have specified the type of oil used: 229.5 has the longer (circa 15k miles) interval, 229.3 has the shorter (circa 8k miles) interval.

    Best to check what oil was used with whoever serviced it.

    to be honest il prob do exactly the mileage it says give or take before the next service. Is it worth me chasing them up and a a trip for them to sort it again. Or should I just ignore it if and when it flashes up?

    Not worth worrying about then, just remember to discuss it with them next time.

    I don't think there's downside to running a bit over, you will have the service records to show actual mileage and service dates.

    Pre 2007, Assyst used a 2 year time interval, not 1 year as now, but the same mileage values.
