    I think audi (Isaac agnew) charge 80+vat labour. Robbers!!!! You are better going to Biggerstaff on the dublin road, he will stamp the book. I just do mine myself and keep all receipts..

    Agnews Volkswagen will service your car. I got quoted 270 from audi and 170 from VW. both are Isaac Agnew..

    While I agree that Dealer servicing is expensive - Mostly down to high labour costs (over 100 an hour here) If you have a basic knowledge and can do a oil & filter change then go for it!

    But with the money you've saved yourself , why skimp on parts and more importantly the oil its self? Comma Oils do a longlife VW503 00 spec oil that's cheaper than Castrol SLX LongLife II.

    It's expensive because it's designed to go all the way to 2 yrs or 22k + Miles.
