My S3 is at 7k miles now, and according to the DIS, it is still a year and many more miles to go before the first service. Since new it has never needed any top-up as well. I feel rather uncomfortable leaving it till then, and plan to do my first service at 15k kilometers (about 9-10k miles), would it be a problem? What sort of mileage are S3 owners at during first service? Local dealer suggests that I change back to a fixed interval service. Any vw tech care to chime in on the effects of this? Suppose I dont have to worry about temperature problem here...it's consistently warm whole year round, and even in the wee morning you'd be lucky to see anything less than 20'c.
