    Not so in reallity, i've phoned 2 Audi garages here in Scotland & both quoted different prices for a 40k service, Ł50 a difference, when i phoned back the dearer one he dropped another Ł25, so, worth shopping about & haggling, bounce one garage against another to see who will drop the most, economic climate & all that

    I've had a service done at Chingford Audi a couple of years ago and paid whatever was quoted on Audi's (fixed priced servicing) website at the time.
    The price quoted on their website isn't for a full longlife service. If you want a longlife service that is when prices vary from dealer to dealer.

    When I was shopping around for my last service I called Chingford for a price but the woman I spoke to quoted about three different prices, one of them lower than their fixed price servicing cost (how !!?!?!) so I didn't believe anything she said anymore.

    In the end I went to a VAG specialist in North West London, just off of the North Circular at Staples Corner (about 30-40mins from Chingford) ------>> Audi & Volkswagen Independent Specialist Garage - Quality and Technology at Affordable Prices

    I paid Ł280 for a full Longlife service, including longlife oil, oil filter, pollen filter, fuel filter, spark plugs.

    Really good, professional service, and at reasonable prices. The guy that runs it is a former VAG mastertech for 20 odd years, and they only use Audi parts, etc.
    Basically they're an Audi dealer with hourly labour rates at 50% of what audi charge, with the added benefit of technicians who actually know what they are doing.

    I highly recommend them.

    Full longlife service at Stafford Audi is Ł170 so still Ł100 cheaper than your local specialist! Its almost worth a drive up to the midlands for the saving. I would, if only to get an Audi stamp + Ł60 at least in saving even if you cover your fule costs.

    Does that price include all filters etc though???
    The Ł175 is for a "Variable Service 1", but they also offer a "Variable Service 2" for Ł235.
    What's the difference between the two??
    Less done in the Variable 1, i'm guessing.

    I got the full works for Ł270, so not worth the petrol and the journey to save Ł35 for me. In fact it would've totalled more.
    The audi stamp would've been nice though.
