Hi all,
I have just got a2012 NC. It’s a one owner car with only 11k km and it lives in Spain. I won’t be adding many more Kms as I’m only there for 90 days a year. It’s had three dealer services in its ten years and has lived in a garage all it’s life. I’m wondering if I should change the gearbox and axle oils and any other maintenance. I’ll fit a battery isolator too. It’s got a Tom Tom sat nav which will need maps updates or should I just you my phone.
Any suggestions for things I should do?

thanks Mark

Definitely drop and change all the lubes.
If it's only had 3 services, (has it had any interim services?) In it's ten years it could have been looked after a bit better. Engine oil in particular can become corrosive due to combustion products settling out when sitting still.
It does sound like a nice low miler but please, even when it's laid up, service it based on time, not miles.

Hi.... 👋

As Steve rightly says always change the lubes due to contamination (my garage owning mate always says)....'Use less...Service more!'...
