Hey all,

 

For context the car is at about 138,000km

 

Looking for a rough guide that people are using of when things should/will need replacement or checked.

 

Just trying to get an idea for myself. I'm in the works of creating a spreadsheet for myself so moving forward I can watch things closely.

Just follow the standard servicing procedure... it covers basically all you need for a stock car... if you want to check more stuff, then just check more stuff.

Thanks will look at that. I'm planning to push the car to 300kw, is there anything that might be more common to worry about after pushing power at that level?

Gauges are what you need for that... keep an eye on oil pressure and temperature, maybe even gearbox oil temperature instead of engine oil...  for the gearbox oil temperature can make a difference, but gearboxes do let you know in other ways if they start letting go.

Just so you know, oil usually does look that colour weather it’s done 1000ks or 10,000ks. It may have been due for a service for sure but that oil definitely didn’t look unusual. Some cars and particularly diesels, the oil turns completely black as soon as you put it in there and run it for a couple seconds.
