    Hi!
    My S3 is aproaching 44.000 miles and it's time for next service.
    Anyone knows what should i replaced and what should i be carefull about?

    Motor oil 5w30 castrol
    Which gearbox oil and how much?
    Haldex oil was replaced 9.000 miles ago,should i do it again?
    Timing belt and Water pump? Can i get them on ebay?

    If i forgot something please write down bellow.
    I will also replace coils,spark plugs and cam follower!

    The car will be serviced in privat garage because i really dont trust the stealers.
    Is there any place for oem parts on the web,so i could buy them online?

    Thank you.
    Cheers
    J.

    Wouldn't worry with cam belt and water pump until 60k myself.

    I'm not sure on gearbox oil or litres, if you use Opie oils site you may be able to find details there.

    Cam follower and plugs well worth doing, may as well buy the bits from stealers as prices for these parts are comparative. Wouldn't bother with Haldex oil again.

    Pollen filter, and then might be worth doing fuel filter (?).

    At 40,000 I had a 4 wheel Beissbarth alignment as the car has done a lot of bedding in!

    Absolutely worth doing so, neglect brings some bloody big bills later on!
