Bentley Arnage Service Schedule

In order to keep the Bentley Arnage running in top shape, it is important to adhere to the factory’s recommended service schedule. My 2004 Bentley Arnage T will be due for its 60k mile service soon. I will document that service on the YouTube channel. Please note that I have compiled this schedule specifically for my model and trim.

This information was compiled using the Bentley Arnage Service Schedules and Record Book, the advice of my mechanic, and the twin turbo 6.75 liter Bentley Arnage T, Arnage R, & Arnage RL 2002-2006 Service Kits available on The kits are also for the Bentley Azure and Bentley Brooklands. To verify if this service schedule applies to your vehicle, check your owner manual, service record book, specialist or dealer.

Schedule Service Type
10000 miles or 1 year A
20000 miles or 2 years A & B
30000 miles or 3 years A & C

    Excellent !! Great information, as I just purchased a 2002 Bentley Azure with 24K miles with a clean CarFax etc. I did in fact research this specific vehicle and am familiar with several pitfalls that “may” or may not occur. For me I always admired The Bentley line-up.

    This Bentley was meticulously maintained 110% by the previous 1 owner. I am really looking forward to driving this beautiful Bentley during this up and coming Summer here in Colorado.

    If anyone can recommend a good trustworthy repair shop within Colorado please forward me that information. I am located 100 miles West of Denver.

    Best Wishes,

    Todd, Congrats on your Bentley purchase! It sounds like you’ve found a good one. At some point, I’d like to post a Bentley repair shop guide, so if you do find a good shop in your area, be sure to let me know about it.

    There is one listed in Denver however listed as RR Ferrari Bentley. Did email them a week ago with no response. I’m sure they will be ok, however pricey…plus my home base is Vail and Grand Lake CO. Really not interested in a 2 hour drive over a couple 12,000 ft passes for minor servicing.

    Do have AAA, and have used them religiously as my 1974 Jaguar Series III OTS V-12 goes to Denver almost on an annual basis, however I do most of the straight forward maintenance on “The Cat” myself. Spend many of hours on the beast. My wife is jealous. Calls it “the other women”.

    Hoping to become familiar enough with my Azure to do the minor maintenance. Time will tell.

    Currently at our Winter residence for 6 months located in La Punta Manzanillo Mexico. Purchased the Azure online from a dealer in W. Palm Beach Fl. 1 owner. 1st time I’m excited about returning to Colorado in April, just so I can cruise around in my new ride.

    Until then…..Warm Regards, Todd

    The 60k service is the most expensive service. If you do it yourself, you can purchase a 60k Service Kit from Flying Spares for around $1200. If you have a local Bentley specialist in your area, it will probably be around $5000.
