Bristol Transmissions doing 8speed flushes £300 +VAT when I enquired. I'd rather support a member on here if and when the process is perfected.

Any news on 8sp flushing? If no mobile service is available, I'm willing to travel. I'm based in Bedfordshire.

Is that for a full flush, Tunny? Or just 'replace as much oil as we can' ?

Had mine (2012 D4 3.0 SDV6) flushed by JAS Land Rovers, Everingham, near York just last week. £305 inc Vat. Nice welcoming people, comfortable, clean reception with coffee and free Wi-Fi. Highly recommend Thumbs Up

How did you find the Disco after the flush? I have exactly same age, mileage vehicle and seriously considering getting JAS to do it.

Any feedback would be great. 😉

How long did it take because I’m hoping to do the same thing?

Not too bad at all then. Did you notice any difference in the car/transmission after the flush?

Well, this is just a dialysis-type 'replace as much a you can' rather than a full flush so the amount of oil required will be less (half maybe?).

The people I'm going to just do LRs, get good reports locally and and are trusted enough by JLR that they have access to update the online service history, so I have to trust that a) they're ethical and b) know what they're doing. Whistle

Been waiting for you to get the 'full Monty' flush sorted Geoff, but at 70k miles decided I couldn't wait any longer to get something done Very Happy

Yes it was smoother, it also gives you peace of mind that you are doing maintenance on your car that should improve the life of it.
JAS use Ravenol Oil which is manufactured in Germany and meets ZF specification so dont be put off by people who question the quality of the oil
