    audi servicing costs how f****** much

    Just wanted to know the cost of a full service from audi (they say i needed a haldex filter etc) £658 :O am i wrong in thinking thats horrendously expensive. Or should i expect it from Audi??

    They also quoted me 550 for a new cluster and 100 for hour labour.

    mmmm

    Sounds about normal.....

    Think my local Audi charges around £120 per hour once the VAT has been added!

    Not that I have or will ever pay that!

    Never!!! go audi for any work! only parts....

    Go to an independent garage if you dont feel like doing the job yourself

    I think a minor service is about £300 standard lol

    Take about being caught with your pants down...

    Are you on about fixing the dead pixels in the cluster?

    If so then I found a place in London that would fit and supply the part whilst you wait. Think I paid around £120 with a 2 year warranty but I have read that there are cheaper places if you travel further.
