What are the service intervals for a Rover 75 diesel?

I have a 2001 Rover 75 diesel. What are the service intervals?

Here you go. The oil and filter change is 'flexible' and depends on driving style and journeys. There should be a warning telling you when it's due.

15,000 miles - Type A service: Oil & Filter change
30,000 miles - Type B service: Oil & Filter and inspection (air cleaner replacement, brake fluid swap etc)
45,000 miles - Type A service: Oil & Filter change
60,000 miles - Type C service: Oil & Filter change and inspection (cambelt, diesel fuel filter, coolant, auto gearbox oil etc)
Repeat.

As the car gets older, you find many owners shorten the oil and filter changes, preferring to do it twice as often every 7500 miles.

It's not uncommon for well-maintained examples of diesel Rover 75s to clock up 150k+

The service inspection sheet is downloadable from the MG Rover 75 and ZT club (the75andztclub.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=50560)

A fine looking car from all angles, until the 2004 facelift. Destined to become a 'classic'. 2.0 diesels proving to be good long life cars with excellent clubs and spares back-up. Up to 4 stars.
