    Hi,

    I have an Audi S3 2001 [225] it is currently on the AVS Longlife service plan but I want to switch it to the fixed service plan. How can i do this? I have access to VAG-COM too.

    Many Thanks

    If it's like the A4, when you reset it yourself using the trip buttons, it reverts to fixed.

    Can't remember exactly, but it is in the manual. Obviously you only want to do it when it is next serviced.

    IIRC on the A4, you press and hold one of the buttons - think it's the spanner one - while you switch the ignition on, then press the trip reset button. But I am sure it will be different on the A3.

    I always thought that this is an option that can only be altered by a dealer. Don't think that VAG-COM is going to be any help here.

    That is for CAN-BUS cars (2005+).

    For older cars, you can change the service intervals with VAG-COM in:

    17 Instruments
    10 Adaptation

    Channel 05 should be the distance until the next Oil Service.
    It is in thousands of kilometers. Let's say you want the Oil
    Service light to come on in 5000 miles. That would be 8000 km.
    Put the value 8 into channel 05.

    The "standard value" used by the US
    dealers would be 12 (7500 miles).

    Channel 06 should be the distance until the next In-1 Service.
    Same units as above. Standard value would be 24 (15,000 miles).

    Channel 07 should be the time until the next In-1.
    (In-1 lights up based on time or distance, whichever comes first.)
    This is in 10's of days. Standard value would be 36 for 360 days.

    Channel 08 would be time until the next In-2.
    In-2 is based strictly on time.
    Standard value is 72 for 720 days (about two years).

    Hope this helps mate.
