    Car Service (Help needed)

    Hi all,

    It’s time already for my A3 to get it’s first service since i bought the car 43400 miles now on the clock. The car was purchased from Arnold Clark as I wasn’t prepared to pay an extra Ł1500 for the same model from Audi (03 TDI). I purchased a two year car plan for servicing and mot, and I was wondering if I should just forget this and take it to Audi or a VAG garage for a service.

    Does anyone know what the quality of service is like from AC. Will they cover all the areas that audi would cover for servicing. How much will they know about VAG. Should I ask for any specific checks to be made?

    My knowledge of servicing is somewhat limited and would appreciate your views.

    Thanks for your help.

    Murph

    Find a decent independent VAG specialist. Do not take it to Audi and definately not AC. They are just a massive lease company, so won't be really have any experience in cars over 3 years old, let alone Audi's.

    Yeah, I'll second that. Have a search in the servicing & ownership section in the forum to find a specialist close to you.

    I just looked for it but couldn't find it, where abouts is the Servicing & Ownership section?

    Oops, sorry, my fault - it's the Audi Ownership & Aftercare section
