Servicing Made Simple
Service intervals for the McLaren range are based on an annual service, diagnostics and inspections with additional items being recommended depending on the mileage. Vehicles driven on track will require additional maintenance and we can tailor your service plan to suit your car and driving requirements.
We are also able to offer 0% finance deals for a range of servicing, repairs and upgrades where required.

During servicing of Mclarens we only use genuine parts and the oil that is recommended or exceeds the Manufacturers standards. Like many of the high performance cars we work on the standard factory engine fill is Mobil 1 0w40 (We have 1,000 litre internal drums) and we also carry Castrol 10w-60 Supercar oil for modified engines or cars that see a lot of track time which offers both improved lubrication and protection in extreme use.
The dual clutch Graziano transmission uses Pentosin oil for its clutch assembly which we have been using on our other DCT high performance cars since 2009 and carry huge stock. We also carry the Pentosin Racing fluid for cars that are used regularly on track as this gives increased protection at high temperatures. The main gearbox fluid is also well known to us and is held in large quantities so this allows us to offer the very best pricing on the transmission fluids.
We use Motul's excellent DOT 5.1 brake fluid as our standard replacement fluid but for cars that see hard use on track we also carry Castrol SRF Brake fluid for the ultimate pedal feel and consistency.
Track Driving Inspections
For those customers enjoying their McLaren’s regularly on track days, we can tailor your servicing to include any extras you may need such as additional transmission fluid changes or a laser alignment. Give us a call to discuss your next pre or post track day checks and we will be happy to run through the options.
Litchfield Vehicle Health Checks (VHC)
Every car that is serviced at Litchfield receives a full vehicle health check. The service technician will spend time on each car and electronically logs any faults or areas or interest, with photos or video. The health check is then automatically uploaded to our cloud-based service database system and added to the vehicles record. Even if you are not on site, we can show you photos or video of any that may require attention.
As one of the UK's leading performance car specialists, we have considerable knowledge of the Mclaren range and can often spot minor issues before they turn into major problems. The health check builds on this knowledge with a specific version tailored for McLarens based on the factory checks. Once fully informed, customers can then choose to rectify any faults or plan for the future.
