    Have you not got the original service book? I would've thought it would let you know what's been done when.

    If not (like me) and you have a duplicate, if it's all main dealer you can phone the service department for that dealership and find out what was done on the service.

    My '07 S3 is on 23.5k and i've just had the following done:
    Cambelt/tensioners + Waterpump
    Haldex oil/filter
    Engine oil/filter
    pollen filter

    Not sure when the spark plugs are due but I can do them myself. Air filter may well get swapped with an ITG or similar so i've left that for now but again could do myself easily if I don't get the ITG.

    It's over 5 years old ?? And when I say cheaply put through it came across wrong it's just never had had belts , haldex and gearbox oils changed, I ve got an extended warranty so am questing this would be voided if I ever needed to claim . And just want to get every done in one go or peace of mind and then don't have to worry about it for a while

    Why not the unit is expensive vs the cost of the change more so when you're getting a big service anyway

    I thought the Haldex oil / filter should be changed every 20k?

    According to my manual for my 2011 A3 TDi

    "Changing oil in haldex coupling (all models) 38,000 miles/4years"

    I also noticed over the page that the book says:

    "Replacing the Toothed belt 133,000 miles"

    By "toothed belt" I assume they mean the cambelt? Every 133,000 miles?? Really?

    There's some weird service scheduling going on in this thread

    Why would you choose to do brake fluid based on mileage rather than time...?

    Why sucha variation in when people choose to have Haldex done. When I called Southampton Audi service desk they told me that Haldex is every 40k, the book says 38k so that tallies.

    How come you're doing your cambelt based on age not mileage? (I do agree the book stating 133k seems a bit risky mind you!).

    I'm struggling to understand what logic you're all applying lol.

    i tend to get more done in a service than most with oil flushes changes etc but tbh the haldex oil i pulled out of mine wasnt that dirty expensive going back in though!

    Audi say 5 years or what ever mileage it is , which ever come first. Although my cars only done 35k ATM it won't be far off 40k by the time I get it serviced. As long I keep iit in with what Audi recommend then the extent ended warranty I have can be used.

    Im no fool and know what you mean , cause I would ent expect a belt too go on a car that only done 35k but it's better be safe than risk it
    land there's nothing wrong with looking after ya little pride and joy
