    At 43k miles, had the Haldex oil changed on my 2009 Quattro. Apparently it does not require a filter change because it's a different set up to the older Haldex systems.
    Total cost £43 incl VAT..of which £20ish was for the oil.

    That's handy to know. Mines never been done but it's only done 30k miles. I guess mine would need a filter being the older system...

    Same here, mine had missed its 40k so just had it done at 63k and was £40, my old 1.8T had a filter but it seems not on the new ones!

    Might be worth checking service book to see if they specify intervals. If Haldex goes wrong it can be horribly expensive.

    Just better safe than sorry with Haldex, oil changes don't cost anything compared to a new Haldex... I'm not taking any chances, serviced by the book :happy:
