    Not so in reallity, i've phoned 2 Audi garages here in Scotland & both quoted different prices for a 40k service, £50 a difference, when i phoned back the dearer one he dropped another £25, so, worth shopping about & haggling, bounce one garage against another to see who will drop the most, economic climate & all that :thumbsup:

    I've had a service done at Chingford Audi a couple of years ago and paid whatever was quoted on Audi's (fixed priced servicing) website at the time.
    The price quoted on their website isn't for a full longlife service. If you want a longlife service that is when prices vary from dealer to dealer.

    When I was shopping around for my last service I called Chingford for a price but the woman I spoke to quoted about three different prices, one of them lower than their fixed price servicing cost (how !!?!?!) so I didn't believe anything she said anymore.

    In the end I went to a VAG specialist in North West London, just off of the North Circular at Staples Corner (about 30-40mins from Chingford) ------>> Audi & Volkswagen Independent Specialist Garage - Quality and Technology at Affordable Prices

    I paid £280 for a full Longlife service, including longlife oil, oil filter, pollen filter, fuel filter, spark plugs.

    Really good, professional service, and at reasonable prices. The guy that runs it is a former VAG mastertech for 20 odd years, and they only use Audi parts, etc.
    Basically they're an Audi dealer with hourly labour rates at 50% of what audi charge, with the added benefit of technicians who actually know what they are doing.

    I highly recommend them. :thumbsup:

    Full longlife service at Stafford Audi is £170 so still £100 cheaper than your local specialist! Its almost worth a drive up to the midlands for the saving. I would, if only to get an Audi stamp + £60 at least in saving even if you cover your fule costs.

    Does that price include all filters etc though???
    The £175 is for a "Variable Service 1", but they also offer a "Variable Service 2" for £235.
    What's the difference between the two??
    Less done in the Variable 1, i'm guessing.

    I got the full works for £270, so not worth the petrol and the journey to save £35 for me. In fact it would've totalled more.
    The audi stamp would've been nice though.
