So car is in for first oil change, £350 ***! If that wasn't bad enough when I got there they still have it down as my old RS3 in for 3 year service! Also advised me of a software update and when I enquired "for what" it turned out to be a RS3 update ...

I'll let you know how they break it down. £150 oil then £200 labour at a guess!

Obviously you're gonna want/need that stamp too. Daylight Robbery. Yeah I'll be keen to see the labour costs. But more, how much oil it takes

Jeez. Couldn’t you have supplied your own oil? Or just couldn’t be bothered?

Not according to Audi Service.
Far be it from me to go against the experts, but I was always told that over filling can be very harmful to an engine. Saying that, these engines do seem to get through the oil.

You can’t get blood out of a stone so I gave up and extracted a wee bit myself.

I got a few bottles free. Although it’s not complained yet and I’m on 10,000 miles. How many miles have you done?

I had my RS3 in for an oil change and for some reason they wanted to charge me £450ish here in Sweden, normaly it's £350. I questioned the price so they changed it to £350 just like that, Audi dealers ftw...

I had mine in for an oil change and inspection but didn’t take it to Audi - local garage - £162.

**** Audi over charging - I don’t need them to stamp my book - it was done with genuine parts and its just an oil change.

Do you not worry about "goodwill" if you've never been to Audi? Or resale if not FASH?
