    Hi

    Im an owner of a new audi s3 51 plate with 100k on the clock - i was wondering when should i service my car and how often?

    it was recently done 3 months ago but how much would you guys recommend to keep the engine running pristine?

    the cambelt was done at 99k and has been really well looked after

    Welcome bud! I change the oil and oil filter every 6-8k, use good quality oil and a genuine oil filter, the plugs are ok depending on what you have, the platinum plugs last a while so change them as and when required, if it has a oem air filter then change that every oil change, if you have an after market filter (k&n, green, bmc, piper cross, itg etc) then that would just need a quick look every now and then. I think thats about it really, main thing is oil and oil filter and it should run pretty sweet!

    Haldex every 20/40k (I do filter and oil every 20k).
    Oil every ~5k with proper oil (I like the motul stuff myself) filter
    Pollen / Air filter every 10k (or when it looks ****)
    Plugs more often than needed if mapped.
    Cambelt every 60k or 4 years.

    That's pretty much what I've been doing, along with new short engine and new head depending on which month / year we're in :lmfao:
