Hopefully i can help..


Fiat 500 with 1.2 engine as per your reg number - Is every 72,000miles or 48mnths which ever come first..


Astra H 1.8 engine - is roughly every 60,000miles or 6years which ever comes first for a non VVT 1.8 engine - If its a VVT 1.8 then its every 100,000miles or 10years which ever comes first - ideally it would be best to stick to 60,000miles or 6 years for both engines..


I do hope this helps..
