    I'm due an AVS service so I've begun ringing round to get prices. First Audi dealer I've tried mentioned that brake fluid should be changed every 2 years and coolant every 3 years.

    The car is nearly 5 years old, but I can't tell from my service book whether these have ever been done (I've just got stamps for each AVS and I've only had the car 18 months) - do I need to worry about them? Is there anyway to tell what condition the brake fluid and coolant is in?

    I suppose as it looks like the car has always been serviced at Audi I should assume that these were done at the right times... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Brake fluid change isnt a service item, so even with full service history it may not of been done

    I've just been quoted £300 for an 80k service + haldex filter change + brake fluid change from an Audi specilist.

    Same was just over £500 for a dealer.

    Up untill now my car has FSH from Audi.

    I know a full Audi history looks better when selling my car in future as opposed to just FSH, but my car is now 6 years old and i don't expect it will affect the sale value that much, if at all.
