    1 st service on monday, oil + filter, polin filter, and wipers, audi belfast (just to keep the book stamped) have serviced it twice, so far in 11,000 miles, myself, at a cost to me of £34.00. how much ? from audi £290.00 oil they say is long life( "NOT" ) does any one out there think it lasts longer than any other type of oil ? at £55.00 a gallon it must be 18 carrot, wiper blades ( part of the service) say £46, polin filter £15.00, oil filter £6.00. = £122.00 for parts, labour £168.00. for half an hours work ?. thats works out at £336.00 an hour labour ? ANY JOBS GOING THERE? did **** turpin were a mask.

    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.
