    Oil & Filter Change At Audi

    Hi Guys,

    This will be my first time using Audi directly for a service. I've done 6k since I got my car, and the oil lights on, so phoned Audi and they're wanting Ł265 for an oil & filter change on an S3, is that price correct?

    That's more like a full service price.

    You can do an interum service for Ł99 which is just a filter and oil change.

    If your oil light came on, did you not check the levels yourself? You might just have been low on oil so you should've just topped up.

    I've just had oil and filter done by my local VW Audi specialist Ł65 all in Audi charge top bucks your better off finding a remittable local specialist. Ask other forum members or go on edition 38 and ask people to recommend one.

    I agree that the price quoted sounds like a "full service". Audi have very reasonable fixed service prices atm; Ł99 for oil and filter change "up to 2.0" - so should include the S3.

    Affordable servicing < Servicing with Audi < Owners area < Audi UK

    I knew the oil was low, the light came on and I've topped it up with 1 litre as I wanted it properly changed, and not just topped up.

    On 2 occasions I have spoken to Glasgow Audi, 2 different people and have been quoted that price. I won't lie ands say it's the first time their incompetence has caused me to go elsewhere, but I wanted to keep the service booked with genuine stamps.

    I am now pretty angry as 2 members of staff have given me wrong information, and when I was actually in the garage I got a girl Yvonne who I had spoken to earlier on the phone and basically lied to my face saying she had not been answering the phones all day.

    Who do I goto to get some genuine advice in the garage itself, as I feel now their staff are not fulfilling their duties correctly?
