Hi guys,

I'm new to this (first post).

I recently bought my 2009 Audi S3 S-Tronic 3dr deep sea blue (I'm sure lol).

I bought it from Arnold Clark last month and now the dash display is showing "service in 9 days". I'm not sure if Arnold should or could have serviced the car before I collected it, I know the light wasn't on when I test drove it or when I done the deal.

I'd much prefer paying for a service through Audi as it was a one-owner car from new before me and every single stamp so far has been Aberdeen Audi. So I'd like to keep it this way.

I guess I'm looking for advice on prices. Are all Audi Service Centre's the same set price or is it worth calling a few different dealers?

Thanks in advance..

Fraser.

Call a few and then go to a specialist.

If they should have serviced it, why not ask them to contribute or get it serviced for you?

Hi PJ,

I have called 4 dealerships closest to me:

Perth Audi: 159/309
Glasgow Audi 159/309
Stirling Audi 159/309

With Ayr Audi quoting me a whopping 684 for the full service. The same service as above at 309!!  

S-Tronic oil & filter change at 169

All prices including VAT.

Hope this saves others some time.

They do price matching mate, get a quote from any local VAT registered garage for your service using genuine Audi parts / spec oil and take it to Audi who will match it for you no questions.    Best emailing around places as you need it in writing.

A little bit of knowledge goes a long way.
