    Inspection service confusion

    Stafford Audi have just confused me (not hard TBF). Around June/July 2011 Stafford serviced my S4 completing just an oil service (to the best of my knowledge). This service was gratis as the car was initially set up with fixed servicing over the requested variable. On the 1st of March my car...

    The side road by work turns into an ice rink after rain falls and then freezes, and has been known to catch the unaware driver out. Its also known for being fun if you are aware of the situation ;) Anyway, i did the usual climb over the speed bumps and proceeded to accelerate away, the road...

    S4 servicing

    So the S4 is coming up to 12 months old and the DIS has said service in 3300 miles or 24 days. When i brought the car i was quoted approx 120 for the first oil service, however when trying to book in today i am being quoted 209. The VAT increase isnt to blame, anyone else noticed the same?
