I've always based the first service from taking delivery of a new car from either the first xx kms/miles or yy months according to the service booklet.
What just occured to me is if one does low kms/miles obviously it'll be based on the latter. So, for the first service, would you count it from the day one you delivery of the vehicle or the build/compliance plate? When you take delivery of the vehicle and there isn't any stock problem, it could have been sitting in their car yard for a month or even more!

You should "start the clock" on the day you purchased the vehicle/put it into service. For these cars, it is pretty easy as most of the maintenance is on 5,000 mile intervals and not really time-based.

Was there a specific service you had a question on? I took my CT into the dealer at 1000 miles and they told me there was no 1000 mile service scheduled for these cars, but they did a routine check on it and washed it all free of charge for me.

It's 15,000kms or 12 months whichever comes first..
As i
I'm not likely to do the kms so would be basing it on the 12 months. So it'll be based then from the time I took delivery rather than from the time the car left the factory? What would be acceptable as the oil do deteriorate over time?

Yes, you should base it starting from the day you took delivery. The oil should be fine for a 12 month period, so if you are not hitting the kms interval, then you should change it at the 12 month interval.
