    Phoned up the Local Stealers today to book the car for its service.
    Its comin upto 35k now so Is the haldex oil supposed to be changed at this mileage.
    What is the cost of the average haldex oil change I thought it was about £28-30.
    But the Guy at the Stealers said It needed a haldex change with the filter which cost £120. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked2.gif
    Is this right?

    ZAF, my service book says Haldex Oil needs changing every 30k kms (18,641 miles so I'd say 20k miles) and the filter needs to be changed every 60k kms (37,282 or just 40k miles /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif) I just recently had my oil and filter changed and even supplying the "parts" it cost me almost €100 for labor /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    It's not cheap, but I figure it's actually better in the long run /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Unfortunately sounds about right to me. Had this done and a regular avs service recently and it came to £400 (inc vat)
