Hello there - I've picked up my brand new A3 2.0TDi DSG today and so far am very impressed. It's both my first new car (an innate dislike of losing £££ from the showroom - but new was only 2K less than 1yr old) and my first diesel (need the economy). I've traded in my Lexus IS300 so I'll miss the luxury but not the fuel costs, I'll also miss the owners club but it looks like you've got a thriving forum here. Anyway I plan to keep the car 2 yrs and will do 36K miles in that time. My question is this - is it worth considering a dealer service plan? The figures quoted are £16.94 pm (£406.56 in total) for service only or £39.61 pm (£950.64) for service, maintenance & tyres. Many thanks in advance for your replies.
