    I see you still have an attitude problem.
    Ł99, I would doubt very much if that is a long life service.
    Audi charge long life oil out @ Ł15 a litre, most engines require 4.5 - 5 litres.
    Erm....... for modern Audi engines there is no difference between longlife/fixed servicing oils. The spec is 504.00/507.00 and the price is the same regardless.

    no i wholeheartedly agree.

    i think it's retarded that they charge you more for the same item if you don't go to the parts department and collect it yourself.

    Staz - Hope you're well! I've used Camberley Audi (not too far from you) for the free MOT and there were no issues at all, it was free and there were no random issues highlighted. I've got it booked in again on Monday for another free MOT and a Ł99 service. I've confirmed that includes oil, filter, all fluids and a general check. While a tenner is a tenner I really can't be arsed with the hassle of getting parts etc seperately either especially when, in my view, your more likely to just annoy the dealer.

    Just rang Stockport Audi and Manchester Audi and both quote Ł149 for the oil service for a 2.0Tdi Sport! She said "it's go up a little", I said "50% is not a little...". If they stuck it at Ł99 then it is very appealing, yes the trade parts cost Ł30 for genuine filter and oil but to save doing it yourself and the AUDI stamp it's worth it at Ł99 IMO...but not so appealing at Ł149.

    An oil change must take about 30mins max at dealers, they will be paying much less for the oil and filter than Ł30, so say Ł20 at most, that's still Ł80 labour for 30mins at Ł99, now they want Ł120 just to open and close a sump bolt and top up the oil.

    I spoke to my local dealer about this today. They were honest and said the kick back they get from Audi UK for the offer was only just viable in terms of cost v profit. So the dealer network have 'negotiated' with Audi to up the pricing structure.

    Had an oil change on friday with the sum of only Ł63. Managed to get a discount as the old man deals with the garage but still Ł189 is definitely a major rip off!!! Aylesbury Audi for all that are near and want to see if they can do a good price.
