    Was it serviced at a VAG garage ? Did they reset the service interval ? How many miles have you done since May ?

    It might require a service in 1100 miles regradless of oil change !!

    I'm sure there's a way of delaying the reminder message for another x miles or days, did it on my previous A3. Have a look in the manual, it's something to do with pulling out the little plastic bits also used to adjust the clock etc.

    Thats normal mate. It will kick in again in a couple of hundred miles. Just keep checking it and you'll find it will eventually read a number of days/miles as it should do. Took mine somewhere between 100 and 200 miles to get its act together.

    Yeah don't worry Matt when I did it on mine it took a few hundred miles to come up with a figure. It says about 8000 miles now.
