    main dealer service costs

    OK will be picking up new car soon (I hope as it will soon be a month since it left the factory!)

    I was going to take out the service plan , the 3 year is Ł25 a month , but the 5 year is Ł35 a month.
    I can't seem to find out the cost of servicing . I will do around 10k miles a year. Does anyone have an idea as I am wondering if this plan is expensive...

    I have just paid Ł171 for the first year oil change service (9000 miles or 12 months) for my S3 but not sure what the 2nd year costs will be (as this will be a full service) although I suspect it will be in the Ł250 to Ł300 range.

    So at Ł300 per year for the 3 year plan, and Ł420 per year for the 5 year plan.... already well worse off compared to the above Ł171 that would be spent in the first year with no service plan.
    As for years 2 and 3 (and 4 and 5 if applicable) you'd probably find you won't save anything at the end of the period if going for the service plan, or even spend more.

    Also wonder what extras they'd try and charge for, on top of what the service plan covers.

    Sorry if I'm being thick. I know that the 3 year plan covers 3 services, but I was wondering if it is actually 36 x Ł25 payments (Ł900) or whether the payment term is less?
    What I'm getting at is - I had a 3 year service plan on a Toyota but the direct debits only ran for the first 24 months.(not 36 months)

    What is the duration of monthly payments on the Audi plan?(How many Ł25 payments?) I can't find it on their website.

    Hope that makes sense...

    I've just been quoted 36 x Ł19.50 = Ł702 for fixed price 3 year service 36 x Ł35 = Ł1260 for fixed price 3 year service and maintenance and 36 x Ł57.50 = Ł2070 for fixed price 3 year service, maintenance and tyres. My last A3 from new had 2 services and 1 set of tyres but the quotes I got that time round were Ł190, Ł250 and Ł380. I went for the Ł250 option and was about evens on the cash front but this time I'm telling them to stick it, what a rip off. 2 x service say Ł400 plus tyres say Ł480 total Ł880 and there looking for Ł2071.44 for the same thing. I was told it was Audi that offered me the good deal last time round, now its VW finance. An increase of 400% Beware!!!!!!

    That's the sort of deal I was expecting this time as my 3 year deal last time was Ł250 but I had to drop it off and pick it up.

    Thanks guys, this is all very helpful. I assume the 5 year plan is more expensive as it includes some bigger services (like brakes,etc). It includes all fluids (oils, brakes, etc) and MOT's including up to Ł750 towards any MOT failure (assume this excludes wear items like tyres). Though Audi give MOT for free anyway .

    Doesn't sound like a great deal. (My daughter is getting 5 years on a A1 for a lump payment of Ł250 and that is a good deal), my only thought was that they have the same price for all A3's and as mine will be a Quattro did think this might include any haldex servicing.. will have to think aboy this as hope to pick the car up end of the week.

    We had 3 years servicing on on 2008 A3 which should have cost Ł125, dealer gave it to us! Audi seem to have stopped this. So on our new order we have negoitated a Free Service!

    Volkswagen are doing Sevicing Deals at the moment on cars over 3 years www.volkswagen.co.uk - I would have thought Audi might follow suit. I think it's Ł299 for 2 years and free MOT's or Ł129 for a service and Ł30 for an MOT outside the 2 year deal. Come on Audi if VW can do it surely you can!!
