Highly unlikely to be nicked but there is a reasonable possibility you will be stopped and asked the reason for your journey and, if the officer deems it not appropriate, can turn you around.
Expect questions around why you require to cross the border for a vehicle service.
Pretty simple: VW garage where I have a contract is 20 miles away. Nearest English VW dealer is 60 miles away.
I understand that. Depending upon any Officer you meet they way, and I emphasise may, see things differently.
I have heard of others being turned around and directed to Supermarkets, as one example, much further from their intended one simply because it sat on the English side of the border.
