    Quick question, just looking at my invoice for my 1st AVS service. It has an item on there:

    VAG 1K2819653A FILTERELEM £17.55

    Is this the Pollen Filter?

    Not necessarily. The pollen filter is due every 20k. If you're on variable and you're in at 15k the dealer will probably change it early. It's not really due for a change but saves you going in again or leaving the filter for another 15k.
