    To follow up on my previous post, this afternoon I contacted Vindis Audi in Huntingdon and am booked in for my first AVS on October 14th. Service costs £234.85 and because my Sportback will be nearly two years old, I need the brake fluid change at £78.73. Total cost will be £313.58 all inclusive of VAT.

    Huntingdon seem to have received some decent reviews here (notably from David Robinson), so I'll let everyone know how I get on!

    Well, took the car up to Huntingdon today for the service and have to say, it was an excellent experience. Arrived early and they got started on the car at 8am on the dot, while I waited around in the showroom (watching TV and reading all the RS4 and TT brochures ). I was also shown how the MMI system works in an A8 display model, which featured the digital TV option.

    They also cleaned my car inside and out (including using glass cleaner which really made a difference), and for some reason the final bill came to 301.89 which was a touch cheaper than quoted.

    The staff were excellent too - I was never without a drink and after the service a guy came in to talk me through what they'd done and asked if I wanted the valet. I was there about 2.5 hours - quite a while although I had chosen to stay on-site so not Vindis' fault - but drove home happy in a clean car.

    One final thing: had the brake fluid changed because the car is nearly two years old, and it really has sharpened up the brake assistance. Initially I thought this was an unnecessary service expense but clearly it's important, so don't skimp on it if the dealer asks you for a fluid change.

    Got 3 quotes last week for 1st AVS service on my 2.0TDi Sportback.

    Warrington £241.93
    Bolton £293.02
    Manchester £285.00

    All inclusive of parts, VAT etc.

    Bolton wouldn't match Warringtons price this time so I took it to Warrington on Saturday morning.
    Came back from the shops with the misses to collect the car and they knoced off some money and gave me a winter pack (de-icer, scraper and demister cloth)

    Total bill £229-04 inc VAT

    Just had my first A3 service at 18.5k by Norwich Audi, they quoted me 220 in advance, the first invoice they printed up was 240, so I asked what extras had been done, they checked the bill and it came out as 187!!!

    The car was cleaned thoroughly in and out (it was absolutely minging) and I'm chuffed as nuts. Considering my wife's Modus was 195 for it's first service at 12k, I think I got good value.

    You forget thou Mike that for the £200 you get nothing more than £40s worth of oil. Throwing in a £10 car wash still does not smack me of value.

    Just dropped off my car for it's first AVS service and was quoted £180 all in! Seems reasonable compared to other quotes on here so hope that won't change when I go to collect it!

    Just had my first service done at 18k at Huntingdon Audi, excellent service, beautifully washed & cleaned and they replaced the glove box cover as the damper had gone, even rang me to say they were running 15 minutes late! 244. They also repainted front and rear bumpers due to lacquer peeling and slight paint mismatch recently..all under warranty, no questions. first class service unlike my previous BMW experiences where they try to convince you to be grateful that they are doing anything.

    A few weeks ago 4L of the recommended Castrol Edge 5w-30 oil for the Audi AVS service cost me 42.99 at normal retail prices at my local Halfords.

    For my 1st AVS service in September 2005 Huntingdon Audi charged me 24.99 for the oil.

    Just had my 1st AVS service at Bolton Audi for my A3 2.0TDi S-line, excellent service £228.44 inc VAT and that included a £10 charge to remove the £1000 excess from the insurance for the courtesy car they leant me. Car was vacuumed and washed.

    Best quote in my area

    Bolton £218
    Warrington £225
    Preston £281

    I'm just glad I don't live in the south given the prices you guys are expected to pay for exactly the same job!!

    A guy further up the page got quoted 293.02 by Bolton in Nov, weird how yours was 218! How does the 10 charge work , sounds lke a racket to me!

    Can't understand either why Migzy's dealer charges him 322 for his 3.2 and Tobes gets charged 260 by the same dealer when they both have A3 3.2s???????

    The £10 fee was to remove the £1000 excess from the courtesy car, if I hadn't paid it and had an accident in their car it'd of cost me £1000!!! Might seem like a con but I made sure I used £10 worth of diesel whist I had the car for the day!

    Just had my first AVS service done today, the DIS has been urging a Service for a couple of weeks now.

    Total cost was 218, which seems to not be too bad really.

    Mines due in a couple of hundred miles so I'm ringing round.

    I've asked how much for a first variable service for my A3. No model specified.

    Peter Gilder Audi, Sheffield (most local to me)

    No vehicle details taken. 'About 220'. 'About?'. 'It will be 220'.

    Doncaster Audi

    Reg no asked for. 193.69

    Huddersfield Audi

    Reg no asked for. 223.09

    Wakefield Audi

    Reg no asked for. 290 'That seems a bit steep' 'OK, we can do it for 230'

    The whole experience has left me with a feeling of impending doom

    Just took my 16mth old 7500 mile 3.2 for its first service and made the mistake of not phoning round first.

    When they gave me the bill for 280 (Including 101 for oil!!! ) I thought I'd gone into a Ferrari dealership not Audi.

    I don't know if it's been mentioned before but I may be able to shed some light on why dealers around me are either quoting around 185-195 or 220-230. The higher priced quotes seem to include the dust and pollen filter change. According to the service book it's due every 20k which is a damn silly time if you're on variable like me. So mine will get changed at 14k rather than me having to re-book at 20k or waiting until my second variable service which could be 32k.

    This doesn't include Wakefield obviously. They just think of a number.

    My rear wash wipe stopped working, took it to Hitchin Audi (about 2 mins drive from me), the hose and jet were just blocked and needed cleaning, apparently so did my wallet - 67!

    Quotes:

    July 06 2.0TFSi quattro
    4000miles

    Although its only 4000miles I do a lot of town driving so wanted the 12month service.


    Edinburgh Audi 290
    Glasgow Audi 290

    I queried both these quotes obviously and they wouldnt reduce them. They said labour was 90/hour.


    So I thought a bit and decided to get it serviced when I visit my Mum in Devon in two weeks time:

    Exeter Audi 170 plus possible pollen filter.

    Seriously, it's not 120 more expensive per service to run a dealership in Edinburgh....

    Derby Audi - Service
    A3 2.0 Tdi Sportback. Just had 1st service (a month short of 2 years)Can't really fault them, gave me a lift to work, rang to get my approval of 'extra' work (wiper blades) cleaned / hoovered / tyre wall blacked car. Only thing I feel shafted on is the price of oil 60+ !! Also did brake fluid change. Put me a Litre of oil in boot for topping up (charged of course) Total Cost 257 + VAT. Does that sound OK ?
    Geriatric love god.......!

    Just had the first long-life AVS service for my A3 2.0Tdi (170bhp) at 20,000miles. Got 3 quotes in the greater Thames area:

    Amersham Audi = £320 inc VAT
    Camberly Audi = £295 inc VAT
    Slough Audi = "about £400 I think". (?!)

    The guy on the phone at Slough couldn't have been more unhelpful (or expensive!). In the end I went to Amersham because they got my car booked in within a week, as opposed to 3 weeks at Camberly.
