    morning all

    had my a4 2.0 tdi for 2 years now and the service light has come up. My cars done bang on annual 10k miles a year so now its 2 years old with 20k on the clock and due its first service. I've spoken to a few audi dealers and the information they're giving me is varying greatly. I've been quoted from £170 - £334 ranging from an interim service to a major service. Im totally confused as to what is the recommended schedule for my car and what i should be going with.

    Please help.

    depends on whether you are bothered if you get an audi stamp in the book.A major service is basically a change of oil/brake fluid (after two years) and filters, with visual checks of other componants.

    Sorry to hijack the thread,

    Johnny I am in the same position right now car done 40000 miles, the major service is for £359 & normal is £159

    In major service they are changing fuel filter which is £86.99 do I really need this now ?

    Also can I change air filter, pollen & dust filet myself ? I really don’t want pay Audi extra £100 for these 2 filters if I can do it myself.

    Thank you for your help :salute:

    Id def do the small service at audi, and then get the fuel filter done locally.The air and pollen filter you can do yourself saving a significant amount, and get the dealer stamp

    everything is charged by labour rates, and at 120 squid an hour plus it mounts up pretty sharpish.

    This morning when I went to drop my car off the service guy was pushing me to go for FULL service & pay over £400

    I asked him, how much for fuel filter ? he said £28.00 inc VAT, I said how can you justify £89.00 for fuel filter & he gone all quite :haha:
