Ooooh Matron. I quite like a good hard service now and then - but mainly after 12,000 miles or more. Don't get me wrong, I don't like the cost, that bit makes me want to cry, but servicing the car does allow for a short blast into work - 3 miles and then the repeat blast back after work. Tonight I really caned it. I decided to see what I had in the tank - and I liked what I found. In fact, I was quicker both ways than I've been before. I quite like pounding through busy city roads. Dodging in and out of the pedestrian traffic. Racing the cars along the busier roads and generally giving it a bit of a burn up. And after all that the drive home was pretty relaxed, the traffic surprisingly light. Good training.
