    morning guys,

    my car is starting to feel a little sluggish at the min.
    it hasn't ever had an oil change i don't think and its an 06 on 61,000 miles.

    do you think its time to get one? will it make it more responsive?
    also its getting a remap on friday?

    what do you guys think?:unsure:

    No oil change in 60k miles?
    Your engine oil must be tar.

    Isn't the car telling you it needs a service everytime you turn it on?

    I think its past an oil change TBH..If you plan to keep it for any length of time it will need flushing. An oil change now with filter !! and in 3 months with filter again. Then every 12 months regardless of milage, oil and filter and thank what ever you worship it is still running now. You dont say what it is ??

    Audi seem to have given up on long life oil changes and about time to !! Please please please guys change your oil once a year !!!!!!!!!
