Just had my first service done after covering 20k, reading in the book, apart from the oil change there is very little to do. But, on convertible models it states 'Maintain and care for convertible top'

Is this just to oil the hinges, or should it have been to re-wax coat the roof?

This is an almost entirely "non-inavasive" procedure.

Just an alignment check, operation check, hydraulic reservoir levels visual check, and seal cleaning/hinge lubrication (where necessary).

It is much like the other vehicle inspection procedures, there is no specific "preventative" or replacement servicing.

The roll-over protection system should be checked every two years too.

There is no fabric top re-sealing/waxing involved.

Thanks Paul, that's sort of what I thought it may be, but just wanted to check.

So, service done, I then pay for their £150 valet... Don't ask, I know I should have had it done elsewhere, but it was convenient..

Would you expect it to be recoated at this point?

.....or they are using the 50 year anniversary water, specially imported from the mountains of Germany?

It all makes sense now.

Joe Ratzinger stepped-down to oversee the 50th Anni water blessings (he gets 12.5% of the gross)
