    RS4 service interval help

    Hi All,

    Does any know what the service intervals are for an RS4 06 reg?

    So far the car that I'm interested in has only 1 service since new which was @ 19000 and expecting an service now @ 36000... This seems odd but can anyone confirm if this is correct?

    Also the car has had 6 owners since new and I would be the 7th, should be concerned about this or is this expected as this is a high performance car?



    Thx in advance


    Raj

    I can't help you with the servicing, but I think that amount of owners would set alarm bells ringing with me. Yes it is a high performance car, but it's a usable daily driver, not like buying a 2 seater impractical car. Six owners in three years is concerning.

    Check out the rs4 section of this forum or www.rs246.com or phone a dealer for sevicing schedules. I would suggest it's around the 10,000miles fixed servicing for the RS models though. As James said, that number of owners would warn me off also - what sort of price is it and is it an avant, saloon or cab?

    It depends if you are on fixed or variable servicing.

    Fixed is 10,000 miles or 1 year, whichever happens first.

    Variable starts at 20,000 miles or 2 years, whichever happens first, and reduces depending on driving style and conditions. I got 17,000 miles & 15 months to my first AVS and then 12,000 miles & 18 months to the second AVS - my daily commute changed from mostly A roads to most town driving.

    6 owners is VERY unusual for an RS4 - most people tend to keep them a lot longer than the 3 months average that suggests. Makes me wonder if the car is a "lemon"?
