seriously, though... ordinary servicing on a 110 is easy enough. If it's
anything like the disco, then the oil will spray all over the track rod when
draining it. I solve this with a piece of corrugated cardboard from a box
standing in the drain pan and intercepting the oil.
All manner of filters will fit. Champion C145 is I think the correct one,
but C102 or C150 will also fit - or will on the disco, anyway.
The advantage of DIY is that you know that it's been done, also what hasn't
some time back, a chap I know had a renault clio, from new. Serviced by the
garage he bought it form every time. at about 65000 miles, it started to
misbehave, lacking power, and eventually it wouldn't pull more'n about 50. I
said "diesel filter" - which it turned out to be. Garage had never changed
it, despite it being on the list of service items every 15K miles.

my opinions are just that
Soon shall thy arm, unconquered steam! afar Drag the slow barge, or
drive the rapid car; Or on wide-waving wings expanded bear the
flying chariot through the field of air.- Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802)
