    I have now done 3800 miles and my service indicator is saying a service is due in 7300 miles. I thought this would have gone up by now but it keeps going down /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif.

    What's everyone else's 2.0Ts saying?

    Are you doing LOTS of short journeys, especially from cold ?.

    Not excessive amounts. My routine hasn't changed and in my old 1.8TQ I used to get an 18k service interval.

    Click the button under the right indicator stalk (assuming you have DIS) and then go to CHECK and then click SERVICE

    Cheers for that - will have a look tonight.

    I had a courtesy car without DIS the other day. It felt v odd - like the car had stopped talking to me... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Or easier still, just pull the right hand knob in the instrument cluster. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    Steve,
    If most of your journeys are short and from cold what MPG are you getting?

    Ah, short trips but empty roads for me. Lots of roundabouts but I try not to let them slow me down tho.

    Mine is 2.0 FSI, done 1000 miles, mostly short journeys to work of about 5 miles. Shows about 520 days or 14300 miles to service. What does yours show in days?
