    She has just gone over 20K miles and its due. I have been quoted by Audi £55 inc VAT to have it done (just oil not filter as it is still quite new)..........is this reasonable as not done it before.

    Thats not bad-think mine was around £45-50. The prices differ so much between each dealer

    My car has just had its 4 year AVS service the haldex oil was not replaced because Audi have removed it from the service requirements. I had it done on the 2 year AVS service and the price was similar to what you have been quoted.

    So has the service schedule been amended, or if the dealers are short of time do they just make up some twaddle to fob you off?

    Had the Haldex oil and filter changed on mine as recommended.
    Its cheaper to replace the oil and filter than to replace the Haldex unit.

    Found out that the oil is to be changed every 20k and the filter every 40k, so its been booked for an oil change only and even the dealer said I do not need to bother about the filter due to having only done 21k
