    Help with servicing advice 2.0TDi 140bhp

    Ok guys picked up our A3 2.0 TDi sportback today and its superb except I note its asking for a service which I completely missed. Guess I got carried away with shiny car syndrome. Looking at the history its on longlife and the previous owner had it serviced every two years on the dot with about 17,000mls between each service. Its almost to the day two years ago that it was last serviced and has covered just under 17k since then. I guess just an oil & filter change will be ok within the next few days ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Help with servicing advice 2.0TDi 140bhp

    Sounds about right with 17k between services. Not a fan of long life myself and would rather drop the oil once a year.

    Enjoy the car

    I get my A3 done annually as I'm not convinced that 20k miles on the same oil is sensible, despite the whole 'longlife' thing. My VAG indy recommends this to.

    But yes, oil and filter.
