    It should all be in your service book, but the key things outside of the usual oil & filters are:
    Every 20k is a haldex oil change
    Every 40k is a haldex oil and filter change
    Every 2 years is brake fluid
    Every 4 - 5 years and/or every 40 - 60k (depending who you talk to) is timing belt, tensioners and water pump.

    So on that basis, there is a big bill somewhere between the 40 - 60k mark, and another one in the general 80 - 120k mark.

    Thanks for that jcs356,

    The reason that i am asking is because i want to know what to look for when buying a s3 i would prefer to get one after the big service like timing belt, tensioners and water pump has been done so i do not have to fork out extra money as i am on a budget already...
