2012 A3 TDI 170- First Service / Oil Change


Registered User
Hi All,

My 2012 A3 2.0 TDI 170 has flashed up saying it is due its first Oil change (19k Miles) and now it has just flashed up saying it needs its first service (19.5k Miles). Are these two things one in the same for the car?

The car isn't 2 years old yet.. another 6 months to go in that respect?

Just wondering what I'm booking it into Audi for (if its an Interim Service) or if I am going to get stung for an Oil change plus some form of Service (as the dash is saying two different things)?

Any help would be gratefully received.

They are 2 different types of service. Call Audi and get a price. Oil service is about £120-£150 I think

Just in case anyone else wondered... and to put an end to this thread.

I needed;

1st Service (Inspection Service)
Oil Service (Long Life Oil)
Pollen Filter

All in total : £262
