    Hey folks,

    Had a look through the AVS thread but couldnt find what I was looking for so here goes. DIS told me I required an oil change back in Septemeber. I booked it into the dealers and they changed the oil and in doing so, the filters and sump plug as well.

    3k miles later and the DIS is now telling me first full service is due which I was expecting so booked it back into the dealers. Now the surprise, the dealer tells me that with its first service it will get another oil and filter change and well seeing that it is "long life" oil I said no chance. This was follwed by a discusion and the dealer saying it is the way things are done.

    I paid £175 for the oil change and they are now requesting £275 for the 1st service so in total £450.

    For your information the car has covered 18k miles and will be 2yrs old in April, 2.0tfsi 2wd.

    Am I the only one who thinks this is strange?

    You should be changing your oil nice and regularly anyway.

    AVS takes the piss and is completely pointless.

    Mine gets changed every 5k.

    WWWOOOOOOOOOOAAAAHHHHHHHHH! Your dealer is wrong. You are on AVS so the Service is an inspection service. The oil change is your oil change.
