    70-75000 miles i think mate

    always better to have it done sooner rather than later, so if i were you id start thinking about having it done within the next 5k

    Audi have a special offer on at the moment for £350

    Mention to them that Stafford Audi have it for £275 on their website and most Audi dealers will bring that down to £300

    Word of warning they don't change the hydraulic damper which is an £85 part or the waterpump (will do for an extra £80 for the pump and coolant)
