comment Is 30k mile maintenance really required?
30K miles is a long way to go without having somebody check your vehicle, and it falls right in line with manufacturer recommended schedule of maintenance for the majority of all car manufacturers.

comment oil leaks when driving, not while parked
Agree. The engine could be burning it as it runs. Check the coolant for a milky color to it, and this is a tell that oil and coolant are coexisting and don't mix.

If you do decide to get DexCool flushed back in, ensure they drain your engine as well.

comment Which provides better engine flushing, traditional flushing oil or adding a flush additive to old oil?
@Mark Oh... It didn't even register that you were talking in £s. I apologize :) I do use it though, and it works well. I was sketchy at first, but a guy at work (We were both mechanics) had been using it for a while. He recommended it, and I have been happy since.
