    Cost is about £10k for the Premium Programme which replaces many parts that are known to fail over time but are not part of scheduled servicing. But if you do this you can get the Classiche Certification for £1k instead of £6k.
    The risk I see is if the main dealer insist that many other parts are changed upping the overall cost.
    If it was Ďjustí(!) £10k then it sounds good, you would get a more dependable car plus possibly add some value to the car.
    Having said all that there may be a much more cost effective alternative to this scheme, one which Iím in conversation with at the moment.
    By the way not sure when my local dealer (Solihull) will get accreditation to the Classiche Scheme but itís likely to be in 2021 at some point.

    £6k for classiche You need to shop around; they are taking the piss with you. But then there is poetry there for driving so far during lockdown.

    This is what they would change on the Starter Kit, system 1 of 4 systems to be updated with fresh components....

    Makes more sense if thatís what it is.

    I already get this service from Stratstone as they always advise me if there is an upgraded part available for either car. As with other posters I have upgraded parts like hill engineering ball joints, tie rods etc. That will be staying on. Definitely a step in the right direction given the increasing legacy fleet mileage.

    £6k is only if you don’t do the premium programme. If you do then the Classiche accreditation is £1k.
