    hi all

    my 2005 audi a3 v6 quattro face lift is due its haldex oil changing , its just hit 60000 miles , but when i went through the service

    history there is no record of having it done at all , so i was going to have the filter done at the same time.

    but on reading through the posts there is different types gen1 and a gen2 , which one would mine be, my husband will be doing this

    for me but a gen 2 does not have a fillter i think. i have brought a spanner but not shure if i now need it.


    thanks Donna

    Nope gen2 requires filter and oil change every 38k miles. It's an awkward job. Hope he's got the 'special' kinked spanner.
    I used an indy to do my Gen4 which just requires oil. All in it cost £38 incl vat.
