    audi servicing

    morning all

    had my a4 2.0 tdi for 2 years now and the service light has come up. My cars done bang on annual 10k miles a year so now its 2 years old with 20k on the clock and due its first service. I've spoken to a few audi dealers and the information they're giving me is varying greatly. I've been quoted from £170 - £334 ranging from an interim service to a major service. Im totally confused as to what is the recommended schedule for my car and what i should be going with.

    Please help.

    depends on whether you are bothered if you get an audi stamp in the book.A major service is basically a change of oil/brake fluid (after two years) and filters, with visual checks of other componants.

    Sorry to hijack the thread,

    Well only thing i want is Audi stamp otherwise i wont even bother going to dealer.

    Id def do the small service at audi, and then get the fuel filter done locally.The air and pollen filter you can do yourself saving a significant amount, and get the dealer stamp

    everything is charged by labour rates, and at 120 squid an hour plus it mounts up pretty sharpish.

    This morning when I went to drop my car off the service guy was pushing me to go for FULL service & pay over £400

    I asked him, how much for fuel filter ? he said £28.00 inc VAT, I said how can you justify £89.00 for fuel filter & he gone all quite
