    £60? Audi quoted me a fair bit more than that...A cheaper well known independent quoted £115...

    Why won't they change the filter? I thought that would be standard procedure just like when they do an oil change.

    hi, changing your haldex oil and filter is a straight forward job. if you purchase the parts from audi they give you a new drain plug so you can see which one you need to remove. the filter is a bit fiddly to remove... just be paitent. the new oil usally comes in a tube that fits in a sealer gun because you have to fill the box back up through the drain plug. i managed to do mine in half an hour on the drive. hope this helps

    are the parts the same as the 8L S3? I'm looking to do this on my friends 8P S3 at the weekend.

    managed to undo my filter with a socket and small breaker bar but it would be easier with the proper wrench
