3000 service last Friday, requested dealer for oil change and new filter (mistake number 1)....
Charged for it, today oil light comes on, car beeps and shuts down, check oil, just a little oil on stick... and no sign of leaks.
Go to local garage (mistake number 2) and they overfill it by 15mm on stick (took over 2 litres), but give me oil all over the engine & new intake and big dirty hand prints in the middle of my bonnet.
Phoned dealer... couldn't be us, we use a digital gun, we reset it to zero you know, bloody fabulous thing... (waste of time).
How much damage has this/could this cause? (drove 120km).
Do I drain some out? Do I make local garage drain some out? Do I go back to dealer.
