    I'm picking up a used A3 tonight and just wanted some advice when checking the service history. What's the service schedule when on variable servicing and is there a way to bring up on the dash when the next service is due?

    I think it depends on the model year. My 07 car, you need to, switch the ignition on, press the button on the bottom of the indicator stalk until you see the menu with the words "set, check, menu off", select "check", select "service" and you will see when the service is due.

    If the service is due soon it is displayed when the ignition is switched on.

    Hope this helps

    Chris.

    I've just spoken to Audi customer services. They were very helpful and gave me details of when they have serviced the car.

    you don't have to go through all the menu system to get this up tho - you pull one of the knobs i think its the right one but not sure - and it brings next distance/time to next service up
