1,200 mile service gone wrong???

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=265139

After reading this thread I went on to check my 1,200 mile service paper and these are the things they did.

Service Standard Scope

IBMW Vehicle Inspection

Engine Oil Service

Am I missing the filter(s) and differential oil change? I thought the differential oil change is only for cars making noise when turning and you have to request for it since it does no harm to the car? Am I wrong?

Are there no part numbers and quantities? The differential oil should have been changed.

Im sure they changed the DIff oil, but what usually winds up getting missed are the manual tranny oil changes. If it wasnt for this site I would have never even thought about it, but thankfully when I took my car in for 12oo mile service, I told the SA to make sure it got changed. I even printed out a post from here with the work order code. At first she said that it was not part of the service but after I gave her the code and she typed it into the CPU it clearly showed that it had to be done.
There is a post with all the work codes some where, just search for it and if it is not on your service invoice then bring the car back and have them change it.
Good luck
