Would this be something of a concern or just me being picky?
    Right to be picky but that's a little OTT IMHO - an annual service every year regardless of mileage is what you're aiming for.
    That was my point. It didn't have a service in 2014 so didn't have the yearly service. It went 2 years between servicing. I didn't know if that would have been a concern or not

    Check the service dates/mileage, it could have been serviced December 2013 and January 2015 !

    I wouldn't enter into a panic over this as long as the PPI is good.

    check whether its on variable servicing, most were, so technically it wouldn't be classed as "missing' a service

    Probably not, he's a busy man. But if you buy an R8 he's the man for your servicing and any other issues that you might have.
