    what I meant was major service on the website it says this:

    [h=2]Interim and major service inclusions:[/h]Both the interim and major services include the following (items in bold are not applicable for an interim service):
    • Electrics: All lights, warning lamps and horn function check
    • Vehicle exterior: Bodywork check for damage; windscreen; windscreen wash/wipe system; wiper blade condition and park position; headlight washer system; mirrors visual inspection/check heating if applicable; top up of screen wash; door locks and bonnet catch check & grease
    • Under bonnet: Oil and filter change, check auxiliary drive belts condition and tension, battery check, Coolant level check, clutch & hydraulics fluid level check, power steering fluid check, Air filter clean or replacement (if necessary), Fuel filter (diesel only) or Spark plugs (petrol only) replacement

    What should happen, is that the garage should inspect the wiper blades as part of the service. If the inspection reveals that the a wiper blade needs replacing (either because it is worn or broken), then the garage should inform the owner, and obtain authority to change the blade. The cost of the new blade will be extra to any fixed price agreed for the service. I stress, that is what should happpen.

    Do you seriously think Audi are going to give away as much as a set of wiper blades ?:)

    They will call you and advise they need changing and its up to you to make the decision. To be fair though, they charge you the same price that you will pay for them in their parts department.
