    Bloody garages !

    Got my S3 serviced this week (monday), they collected it & brought it back, came back clean so I thought looks like they've done a good job.
    I usually check the oil when I get it back though this time I did not till 400 miles later today I checked the oil [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] about 10mm's worth covering the bottom of the dipstick, had to stick a litre's worth in the correct it, stating to think they must not have filled it up the cars done 77K in just over two years, its never gulped oil like that in such a short space of time.

    What surprised me is that the low oil warning light never come on I would have thought it would ? or does it only do when below bottom of dipstick.

    I'll phone them monday & ask them to explain, checked for oil underneath though looked bone dry no leaks on the drive - I just think they did not fill it properly

    Yup, sounds like they filled it but didn't check the correct level.

    probably checked it before starting the engine and it hadnt filled the oil filter.
