    Is this a good deal at an Audi dealership:

    Full Variable service (inc plugs etc), Haldex oil and filter change, brake fluid change and Beissbarth 4WA = £472 inc vat?

    First time getting the S3 serviced at a dealers. It needed a wash and a hoover so at least it got that too!

    don't know the answer to your question, but I would only trust my S3 with a specialist, and my specialist of choice is VAGTech. To each his own though.

    That seems a tad high to me.

    I had the 80k service/haldex/brake fluid changed for £250 all in via a specialist.

    The tracking shouldn't cost you more than £70.

    Yeah i think £250 would be the aim for that lot. But then i think going to audi is a ripoff.

    Sounds like you have already had it done? if not i would say get plenty of quotes. and tbh i recon a lot of places could be bartered with as surely most will be struggling?

    4 wheel alinment can cost up to £200 at a dealer, your price looks average for a dealer service tbh

    thats very reasonable from a stealer,allignment costs me £100 on its own at a specialist..haldex at my stealers was £130
    it seems they must realise they are going to have no work unless they cut prices.

    Audi are now doing a thing called club class, this entitles you to 25% discout. I bought my car privaate, needed a part so phoned the dealer and they signed me up free of charge. You also get a free MOT for the period you have the car. Its not a bad deal.

    My mate had his timing belt changed on his s3 and it only cost £300 ish which aint bad.

    Just thought i'd mention for those who weren't aware
