    You can just open up fill plugs and put a finger in to check the level and also the viscosity I am doubtful that it's bad unless bashed hard off road or reversed kms or parked up to the doors in water for a good time....

    I was also burned rather badly when an asshole lit a rag in my pocket. I made sure he got fired. Later, when I had my own workshop, I maintained a strict policy against pranks of any kind- you prank someone in any way, you are fired on the spot before you can hurt someone or damage something. Pranksters should be taken outside and shot- survivors to be shot again.

    My honest advice. It’s a nice car @Gaurav and no disrespect intended. I’ve never bought into the whole service history thing, I buy on condition and I’ve got a lot of fantastic cars and saved a lot of money doing it. Sure, you sell it again for less, but you already paid less for it so it all balances out. I understand that it’s a Range Rover and we all know can be as fickle as a 40 dhs crack addicted diera hooker and hold you to ransom or just plain rob you for fun. Once you get into the FRRSH trap, it’s difficult to get out of. It’s hard to go elsewhere to get work done because you’re scared of losing your investment. But, time V Kms is a real thing. Look at it this way. If you got an awesome deal on a 20 year old Corolla with only 20k on the clocks, the first thing you’re going to do is change the oil and filter along with the timing belt. The timing belt doesn’t need changed for another 40k but it’s a 20 year old piece of rubber and could snap at any time. Smaller financial scale but same problem. Same with oil. The heat here is intense. Oil breaks down a lot faster than colder countries. I would rather change it for a few dirhams than run the risk of problems down the line. Warranty issues don’t come into it anymore, as per a thread I posted a few days ago, the UAE government made it legal to service your car anywhere as long as you stick to the manufacturer recommended service schedule and your warranty will still be valid. But investing in FRRSH is a slippery slope and I’m sad to see you caught in it. If you’re going to keep the car for a while, get it done on the cheap. I’ll even do the work for you myself if you buy the parts. If you’re going to stick to the dealer, work out all the parts and labour costs and add them into the final resale value and see if it’s actually worth it. FRRSH might make the car easier to sell again, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get your money back at resale time.

    Back home someone asked me if I could fill his tyres with nitrogen. His tyres kept going down. I didn’t have nitrogen so I told him I could give him 78% nitrogen mix for free, it’s a bit less stable but works perfectly, people have been using it for years. Most people know that air is 78% nitrogen, this guy didn’t, so I gave him ordinary air for his tyres, charged him for 4 new valve stems and he was so happy about it, proudly told all his friends he was running 78% nitrogen.

    So you were proven spoiled mechanic if you knew all these pranks to the AH level. Good, you haven't started your workshop.
