    130K Servicing of an S3

    Arvo, need a service on the S3.

    Currently done 130k miles, new engine fitted at 93k so on a 2nd AVS service.

    Also need new front pads, haldex etc. Anyone recommend somewhere in the Oxon/Berks area or has anyone got any pricing?

    Been to Newbury Audi:

    484.77 for service
    150.00 for Haldex service
    216.54 for front brakes inc fitting
    99.00 for re gas
    Total: 950.31

    Jesus is the operative word!

    Got back from AMD

    Oil Change and Service: £150 + VAT
    Haldex Oil & Filter: £100 + VAT
    Brake Pads inc Fluid change: £248+ VAT

    Got back from Basingstoke Audi

    AVS Service: £409.25
    Haldex Oil & Filter: £141.00

    Haven't got the tools, jack, time or patience admittedly. Though Fontain said if I take the pads to them they can fit em. But what pads?

    Also on the brake discs they can do Brembo ones anyone got these on?

    I think the OEM Discs are Brembo anyway, if i remember correctly all you need is a torx screwdriver and your done in 5 mins for the pads - honestly dont understand how you can be gettin quoted £248 for pads to be changed, its not even all 4 wheels

    Try APS in Brackley if that is not too far from you. Set up by Ed and co ex of AMD. Excellent (and I mean excellent) service and cheap as chips. Website is http://www.autops.co.uk/
