Independent servicing

I have decided for the 100k service (which is the same as the 24k mile one) to go the independent route. The dealer list price is 940 they offered to do it for 775. For an oil, oil air pollen and diesel filter change that's a bit steep.
The garage I've used for years will do it for 420 using oem parts.
One question though he doesn't think he can reset the service indicator.. does anyone know what software or code reader this would need? Ta

Steve @ Falcon Engineering May be a able to help you. Great bunch of guys. Had my car serviced there as due to logistics while working in Denmark I couldn’t get it to Autoshield.
But I know they have done other Ghibli and mk5/6 QP’s.

In addition we also have a Mac tester running Launch software and Snapon, both read and reset service tokens.

Just make sure on a QPV and GT the date and time is set correctly or you will trash digital clock on the binnacle.

Which makes me wonder why maserati still fit the clock...

I can endorse this view.
I have used them (Falcon) for about 5 years now and they are truly excellent

Service all complete. Everything ok (touches wood!) except rear discs which are badly corroded, though are the originals so cant complain too much. They fitted the winters too whilst it was in
