Audi Service Schedules
Fixed Inspection Service: due every 10,000 miles or 12 months (whichever comes soonest). This is ideally suited to around town drivers.
Flexible Long Life Service: longer service intervals determined by driving conditions. The service indicator will illuminate when a service is due. The mileage intervals will therefore vary but will not exceed 18,000 miles or 2 years (whichever comes soonest).
DSG Gearbox: renewal of the transmission oil and filter is due every 40,000 miles.
Manufacturer’s diagnostic equipment plus Autologic and Bosch to allow us full coverage and provide accurate, cost effective diagnosis.
Brake fluid should be renewed every two years.
Air conditioning should be serviced every two years as odours can build up in the system and it also needs cleansing and checking that it is working effectively. Also, the gas dissipates over time and requires topping up.
