I have never seen these used in Australia - they use a sticker on the
quarter window (or windscreen) and write in the date/milage of the
next lube/oil change etc - my MG guy uses one with a Union Jack flag
on it (so from outside the car you just see the Union Jack - and it
just looks like a cool sticker).
Maybe they did this before I owned a car?
