No but you're best off getting a dealer to do it aren't you so that it keeps your warranty valid?

Hi welcome along,
I would also recommend having your dealer carry out service work whilst your car is in warranty. It will be void if you don't follow their correct procedures.

Garage
If you do get to change the oil yourself it is critical that you do not overfill the sump as the engine is tilted at 43 degrees and overfilled oil levels can cause serious damage
Maybe best left to the dealer

Wise choice I think. Everything else all still OK with it?
