Hi there. I've been inspired by @fezza68's helpful thread RE dealers in the NW.
I have a VW Service plan for next 2 services, and therefore am tied to a VW Dealer. I didn't have the best experience last time I popped in to JCT600, Sheffield, and therefore wondering about other options...
I'm having van booked into VW as the message came up on the display:
Oil Service 11800mi / 13 days
Inspection 19400mi / 378 days
Is this going to be a full service, interim service or an 'oil service'?
VW seem to say its an interim service.

I haven’t done 20,000 miles?

My 2017 150hp T6 Campervan was serviced on 24/5/18 at 5k miles before I bought it . It now has 7.5k miles on it and the service indicator shows it needing an inspection service in 33 days.
Am I interpreting that correctly ? I don’t want to invalidate the warranty...
Looking for service information on what gets serviced and when... Have seen the post that explains when you should get it serviced (mine is on the flexible system but will be doing it annually)
When I was looking into these vans the internet seemed to think the 4motion haldex should be done at...

Forgive me if im being dim here but im getting a notice come up on the dash saying 'inspection in x amount of days' its on a count down to round about the point i will have had the van about 18 months ish?
Its thrown me a bit by saying inspection?....of what??
Now I've changed engine oil & filter in plenty of cars, but it's usually very easy to spot the oil filter location.
Embarrassingly I'm struggling to find it(!).
I've read the maintenance document available for download, found a pic on here on another thread, but I'm still looking.
