    A3 8P Haldex - no oil change @ 20k miles???

    As the A3 is now at 20k, I had it booked in today for the Haldex oil change and brake fluid change.

    I went to pick the car up and I was told that the haldex oil no longer gets changed every 20k on the new A3. This was the first I had heard of this, and as I have a duplicate service book (doesn't show additional work at intervals) I had no way of saying anything otherwise.

    Is this the case with the 8P A3 quattro then?

    I do remember reading something about the newer haldex diffs being sealed for life, but I'm not 100% sure.
