    I bought my Audi A3 sportback on Audi finance and when the V5 comes I want to put my private reg which is on retention onto the car. Question is once I change it over and put the plates on the car, do I need to tell Audi finance?

    Yes I think they charge a £50 'admin fee' for it

    Never thought to tell mine tbh, it will probably be in the t&c's so maybe I should tell them.
    But £50, they're having a laugh!

    When ever I have changed it over with the car insurance company it's been free so don't know how they can justify a £50 admin charge

    Some do - I went thro a broker and I've never been charged admin fees for anything. Change of reg / nominated drivers etc. And it was cheaper than on-line! Result all round then.

    However, the barstewards in the finance house I used hit me for £50 when I put my private plate on - and yes, it's in the T&C's.

    Still waiting on the paperwork back from dvla. Have contacted Audi through the Audi finance website to see if there will be an admin charge.

    Plates are now on the car and I contacted Audi finance through their website and there's no charge for swapping to a cherished plate so I'm happy. Going to spend the money I thought I'd have to spend on the admin fee and buy some S3 pedals :-D
