Does Range Rover have an oil service interval alert on the instrument panel? Mercedes Benz warns you of upcoming oil changes beforehand. I was wondering if Land Rover does too? I've logged 6500 miles and i know that i'm supposed to change oil at 7500 miles.

Thanks.

Yes, its rather cryptic, but the manual explains it. If you have a <2010 its 7.5K, if its a 2010 you'll have to wait a bit longer.

Yes, but the Service Interval Indicator - aka SII, check the owner's manual - is market dependent (your dealer could deactivate it if they wanted to) and if you blink you'll miss it... On MY2006-2009s the word "Service" followed by how many miles and/or days are left before you are due for your oil change will pop up in the right-hand LCD within your instrument cluster when the predetermined values are reached (e.g.: 500 miles or 30 days to the next service.) The indicator will stay on for only a few seconds each time you start the car, then it will extinguish. If the mileage or days are preceded by a minus sign, it means you have overshot the service by that many miles/days. Remember that on MY06-09s the interval is 7500 miles OR 6 months, whichever occurs first.

Both intervals are unbelievable given the fact it isn't synthetic.
AFAIK, the oil is synthetic on the new 2010 5-liter petrol engines (both normally aspirated and supercharged.)

Why would you want to extend the oil service intervall?
Mechanical components thrive in fresh oil, the oil degrades the more they are used.
Check the oil on the dipstick, is it nice and clean? If it is, fair enough.

Are you guys just using the dealership for oil changes or can I trust my neighborhood quick lube place to get an oil change?

Don't do that...Jiffy Lube will screw it up for you...at least take it to an independent LR shop or a British Car shop.

Alternatively...it's quite an easy job for a DIY'er if you're so inclined...

If you still want to go to Jiffy Lube, just make sure you drive it in straight.

AFAIK? Ok, Umbertob, now you're just provoking him. You know UK is not down with the whole brief verbose thing.
