Overdue service?

Started the 2018 570s Spider today, which I took delivery around this time last year. It said 3 days overdue on service. I’m only little over 2500, should I be worried? If I remember right they would like to do the first service after a year or 5000 what ever first right?

Check the warranty, but typically there is some leeway (I'm guessing two weeks). I'd book it now though.

My understanding is that the service is an annual event unless you drive a lot of miles. My second year service came due with only 400 miles driven since first year service. You did the right thing by scheduling the service. Good luck and enjoy the car!

I think it also depends on relationship with service advisor obviously if your car's been in storage all winter and it passes a service date they're going to be a little bit flexible on it i would hope as long as you arent going like 6 months past date etc.

I checked the ESC, which I would expect to have similar terms to the original warranty - it allows 4 weeks and 500 miles either way.

Oil change is required every 10,000 miles of 1 year, whichever comes first. The year has come first for you. Since you have driven it very little, you can just call and ask the service center whether it is required.
