Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and I'm currently in the market for an Audi A3. The issue I have is, I've found a car at a cracking deal however it is quite a distance away from me so I contacted the seller to ensure a couple of details and a few issues he raised was that the service light keeps coming back on every say three months or so. He assures me the car has a full audi service history and he bought it brand new from the dealer himself so no previous owners either. Surely the service light shouldn't be coming back on a few months after a service ?
Also he mentioned he's only got one documented service which I'm assuming he's referring to number of stamps in the service book. In regards to service records in the past when my mums had her car serviced from our local dealer and she's forgotten the service book, they were able to pull up our vehicle records on their system and back date the stamps in the service book. However can this be done from any dealer or would they each have individual systems ? In other words would it have to be back dated at the dealership the service was carried out at ?
Finally the seller only has 1 key but he says he's contacted the dealer and they told him for vehicles less than 5 years old they charge a standard rate of £70 for a replacement spare key. Is this true ? and have any of your guys had to order a replacement key?
Thanks in advance guys look forward to hearing from you all !
