Does anyone have any advice on what maintenance the car might need in view of the situation over the last year? Last service was in March 2019 and drove ~2 thousand miles. In 2020 drove around 300 miles; short trips just long enough to warm everything up and I'm planning to take it to Europe when allowed. A main dealer is very keen to get the car in, but I'm wondering if this is really necessary. Thoughts appreciated.

I’d get it serviced, it might be costly but you’ll pay the price when you move the car on if the service record isn’t complete. Not sure how old your car is but I’d be looking at possibly an indi if the car is out of warranty!

In that case I’d just get the oil changed!

I would be tempted to get it in and run a minor service, it will give you peace of mind and avoids extended gaps in the service history.

For that, I think an oil and filter change would be all you need. Maybe check the battery as well (load test), and condition of tyres and wiper blades (i.e. rubber bits that dont like being sat unused). Does the A/C run ok? Might be worth doing a service and disinfectant.

A quick scan of the internet suggests 9000 miles between services.

Surely oil can cope with more than 2300 miles ??

Thanks for all the replies. That's the main question I guess; is it time or mileage.

Not knowing an independent near me Lamborghini Tun Wells did a minor service and health check for about half the price of a normal one.

Cheers

Yes, spent 4k at Lambo Chelmsford (Grange group) earlier this year - I wont be using them again for multiple reasons but there initial price was something silly like £5,250 and they acted like they were doing me a big favour cutting it down to 4k.
H.R Owen and Sytner both quoted 3.9k straight off the bat.
My car was already sitting in chelmsford having other work done, and I wont be using them again.
