    Hi all,

    Well I picked up my 2004 Avus silver A3 3.2 Quattro yesterday and ive been loving it all weekend!

    Its got 59k on the clock. It had a long life service @ 56k + brake fluid.

    Will the service book show if the DSG oil has been changed - should it have been done at 40k - how can I check this?

    What oil do they use in the long life service, and where is the best place to get it? GSF?

    I don't think the Haldex oil has been changed - should I get this done - how much at a dealer for this?

    Are there any other things I should check? I have scanned the car using vag-com, and there are no faults - so thats good!

    Just enjoying the car now!

    Thanks again,:greyrs4:

    pcd is 5x112.

    Not sure on induction but I myself have stuck to K&N...

    THE Carbonio CAI seems to be pretty good but it sits low which makes it prone to water from puddles...
