    Hi

    When I got my A6 it had been serviced by main dealer and read 20,000 miles to next service & around 600 days from memory. Since then when ever it gets serviced it sets to 9500 miles and 365 days.

    How do i reset to longlife service mode. Since I am paying for expensive oil I would like to put back on long life mode.:tocktock:

    I have VAG Com hoever think need to do more than than the reset of Channel 2 within adaptation instruments module which resets service, but does not switch back to long life service.

    Use the SRI reset function on vagcom, you can choose which service interval you want.

    if you plan to keep the car id get it off long life servicing and put some proper oil in it. its a total gimic. the expencive oil you pay for is soooo full of detergents they forgot about the lubrication............... save your cams now before its too late!!

    not on your model of audi/engine as yet.
    but cams, rockers, tappets on 1.9 tdis, old 2.5 tdi a4s, audi tt cam bearings, old 2.8 30v a6 a4 cam bearings. oil pick up strainers blocked with carbon deposits on various audis/vw/seats.

    its hard to pin it down as long life oil causing these faults with cars ive worked on/fixed/seen 1st hand. but its all in common (lubrication). ive got a tenner says, if the cars id seen had normal oil in and changed every 8-10k they wouldnt have had the problems.
    whats a simple normal lube service cost? £80 £100?

    20oddk on the same oil?.... id worry, put it that way.
