So, my 2015 GTS has not seen the inside of a Vespa shop since it's first service. I've done the basic maintenance procedures (and a few unexpected ones such as the water pump) on my own. It's been running well, no concerns.

Question is, then, am I missing anything by not plugging it in for a diagnostic check? I think I've also read of updates, etc. that people have had done.

Do I need to think of having a "wellness check", or happily scoot on without?

If you don't have a check engine warning light on your dash then there's very little reason to plug it in.

Mine had never been back to a dealership since new, so I decided this year to have a P.A.D.S test done on my 2013 GTS 'just to check' if there were any outstanding updates and it came back there were none, so it was a waste of £90.00. As steelbytes suggests, if your CEL is not showing, just keep on riding.

What I expected (or hoped for).

Thanks for your input.
