    Just checking the service history on my new(sih) car.
    It had a dealer service at 42k miles but the ATF Multitronic oil box is not ticked- surely if this is a dealer service this should have been done?

    It absolutely should be done at 40K but not necessarily as part of the standard service. BTW it cost about £200 to get it changed :(

    Just because it has a tiptronic mode doesn't necessarily mean it isn't a multitronic. Both types of auto box have a tiptronic function. Is your car front-wheel drive or quattro?

    Then it's almost certainly a multitronic, and will need the gearbox oil changed every 40,000 miles, without fail.

    My local specialist Audi Garage Kent, Car Services, Car Repairs Kenthas quoted £90 my local audi £180.#
    My car has alredy done 45k- just wondering if Audi would cover any issues either way.
    Its already passed the 40k interval so they may well say it was not done on schedule.
    Any thoughts.

    £180 is double but it's cheaper than I paid (although they did replace the filter too by mistake which would have doubled the price although they had to do it for free :) ). if you maintain a dealer service history you are far more likely to get Audi goodwill after your warrantee has expired.

    for that i would go dealer
    then if it does go wrong down the link you have audis backing
    so for me it would be worth the extra
    BUT i would never own 1
