    My a3 is due a service and is due and DSG oil change.

    From what I have read the DSG oil and filter should be changed.

    I was thinking about getting the DSG change done at audi or VAG specialist as it really needs to be done correctly.

    Then I was looking at getting the service done independently. Is the filter that is changed with the DSG the same filter that would be changed on a service? My point being that obviously there is no point getting two new filters within the space of a week or so.

    When you ask for a full DSG service, it is wise to specify that you want both the oil and the filter changed at the same time. Some garages may short-change the customer by not changing the filter. Not a good idea. Insist that it is done properly and ask to see the old filter before you pay the bill. The filter fitted should be a genuine VAG part, but if you are worried, ask to see the packaging of the new filter so you can go check the part number.
