    You need VCDS to do a full reset.

    And a vat registered garage to stamp the service book !

    Find someone with VCDS, i see Nallys point but its your car so you can do what you want, any buyer will want to see a Audi stamped service book so the service reminder is of no consequence except to you.

    Get real Crunchie....Fact is if he knows what he is doing he will almost definitely do a better job than any Audi main dealer. If you were a full trained washing machine bloke would you call out another one from down the road to fix your washing machine.

    Yes mate VCDS is Vag com. takes 30 seconds to reset your service light, A MOT tester and main dealer service master tech that dosnt know how to reset a service light eh

    I have a snap on tester and when you reset the service data on it the tester the car doesn't recognise it, when speaking to snap on they said Audi have to do it that's why I ask, now I need to find some one with vag com. Cheers
