    Servicing.

    I have just remembered that I cancelled my last service, I was going to book it back in but it slipped my mind, as things do.

    in fact the little warning comes up to tell me but I didn't even notice it until this morning, it comes on when you start the car. The last service was 28 March 2011 and it was a full one. It says in my book that it could be 2 years between next service. I have done 22000 miles since then. I am now past the two years but if I get it done now, will I still be able to say it has a full service history? I may need to sell her soon as getting another car and didn't know if this would affect it.

    Sounds like a plan. If I book it in for a long life service next week it should keep it as FSH?

    Cheers, I will find some money and book it in for a major service at my local Audi dealer. Or should I go to my local Bosch garage? Would look better when selling to have Audi service I think.

    personaly id go to an indi
    i dont look on a audi stamp to be better when buying a car.
    iv used the same garage for years for my repairs services etc.
    and never had a problem when selling cars sometimes the buyer has called the garage to confirm its had the services tho.

    Is your indi a specialist or just a standard garage?

    It breaks my heart to take my car to an Audi dealer just cos iv had so much bad work done by them, but I will try to keep the service Audi till the car is about 4years old.

    I think by your posts StateOfPlay you thinking of selling?
    With this in mind as you have Audi Servicing up till now it may be worth keeping it FASH
    Price up the two garages before making your mind up

    Yes, it is Audi service up until now. Would it make any difference to selling price to have FASH v FSH?

    I really don't get the question, if you have done 50k miles between services over 5 years, and you have a record of this, it's still FSH, how can it not be? OK, the car maybe classed as not looked after(I'm not saying yours isn't looked after), but it IS still FSH! As for the whole dealer service history thing, I don't think it matters much once the warranty goes out the window or if the car is high mileage, say a 20k+ mile car, so long as it's been serviced. In my opinion of course.

    The reason I asked JoJo was that it was last serviced in March 2011, which is now over 2 years, and it has done 22000 since. The Audi service book says it must be serviced within 2 years. So I was just wondering if I had screwed up and was not able to claim it had FSH when I come to sell it.

    Personally, I'd say you're ok. I think most people recognise the practicalities and accept there will be the odd occasion when a service is late.

    My service warning has just come on - I'm on fixed annual intervals - and it says it's due on 22 April. But my MOT runs until 11 May. I've booked it in for 7 May - at an indie, not Audi - as that rolls me over into another credit card month.
