    Quattro Transmission Fluid

    HI all.

    Can anyone let me know how regularly and how soon in the cars life this quattro fluid should be changed. I have done 18K already had its first service but have now had a flyer from Audi garage telling me I need it doing. Just spoke to them and they weren't too convincing in telling me its not due a change yet. I remember back to my S3 days and I had it done but if I remember I was quite surprised it was so soon.

    Many thanks

    Phil

    The A3/S3 uses a haldex differential to control 4wd(it's not permanently 4wd, only when needed)and require a fluid change, whereas the A4 is a permanent 4wd drive system with a torsen differential. These torsen differentials are pretty maintenance free, I've never heard of a torsen diff requiring a fluid change.
