    Is the Haldex service based only on mileage (20K) or is it 2 years max also, the same as brake fluid? Just wondered as engine oil is based on a time and mileage schedule so i'm thinking the Haldex oil is the same ?

    I'm asking incase the requirement has changed since the service book for my car was printed as seem to recall people mentioning it has changed ?

    cheers in advance.

    My car is from march 06 and the service manual states that haldex oil change is due at 40k miles.

    Cheers, the main reason for not searching is to get up to date info as some of the search results are a bit long in the tooth. Will have a look tho.

    40K blimey, seem to recall the previous A3 8L was 20k oil 40k filter IIRC.

    cheers :)
