Will home servicing affect my warranty?

My car is due in for warranty work.  When booking it in the woman asked if it had been serviced.   Obviously I have had it serviced, but not at the main dealers. I have a friend who is a mechanic who I trust. He serviced it for me for a fraction of the dealer cost, using genuine parts.  

Unfortunately, because he serviced it at my house rather than at the garage where he works he hasn't stamped my service book. Is this likely to affect my warranty? I have the receipts for the original parts used but no stamp!

Any help would be appreciated.

Where will I get my Jaguar serviced?

Hi guys,

I'm looking at buying a 2001 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 petrol with very low mileage on the clock. Is there anything I should be aware of in terms of getting it serviced? I don't plan on driving it too much but if something did go wrong is it going to cost me an arm and a leg to fix?

Thanks for your help.

Do I have to use specific anti-freeze in my BMW X5?

Hi, my 2005 BMW X5 3.0d is taking its time to start these mornings. It's due a service shortly (1,000 miles). Should I put anti-freeze in it now or wait? Also, will any anti-freeze do or does it have to be specific type as the manual says or is this scaremongering so I get it done by BMW?

How can I stop exhaust fumes?

How much would it cost to change a timing belt in my 2000 Hyundai Coupe?

Also, there is a smell of exhaust fumes while driving the same car. The smell is always there while driving, but only can smell with the windows open and is strongest on the driver's side.

Any ideas or help would be great.

Not much money to go to mechanic!
