afternoon

it is time for my SQ5's second service

just coming up to 2 years old and 34,000 miles

nothing wrong with it as far as i know

my local dealer is quoting £682 for the service (!!!) - how much is everyone else paying for this kind of thing?

""This would be a major service at this time and will be an oil change with oil, pollen, air and fuel filters to be replaced alongside a full inspection of your Audi. The total price for this will be £682.36 including parts, labour and Vat.""


seems a bit steep to me.....

I would get another quote and if you want to keep dealer service ask them to price match.

Our SQ5 is just in for our second major service today with just under 50K showing - because its more than 3 years old (car is 46 months old) I was quoted £399.00 at the supplying Audi dealer which I was pleased with, however received a call at lunch time saying it needed front pads and discs and rear pads - service cost now at £1489.00 - not quite as happy with that

i had the oil, filter etc done for £167 (they price matched a local dealer)
i also think the 'inspection' thing is a load of rubbish (they charge something like £250)

When i received mine back from the dealer after the oli change, they had completed an inspection anyway (told me outer,middle,inner tread depths on all tyres etc)

I think I was around £350 for both the inspection and oil change parts of the service.

Tiny tip:
Supply your own oil...around £6 per litre at Asda and others places v. circa £18 a litre at dealership.
You'll need about 7-8 litres for a full oil change.

My SQ5 was due an inspection service last month. My dealer quoted a price just shy of £470. I asked my local independent Audi specialist for a price. He said the oil didn't need changing (it was changed last year) and the price, using genuine Audi parts, including labour was £90 inc VAT. Needless to say where I took the car! He also rotated the wheels to even out the tyre wear for free. He's an Audi Master Technician who provides fantastic service. They even have access to Audi's service schedule database (they pay Audi a fee for this) to maintain the onlinecservice history.

I was quoted £315 at Glasgow last year, even less if I brought my own oil ;) But ended up getting a free first service in the end, but thats a different story.

My car is old now so I just use a mobile mechanic that comes and services my Q5 at home. His background is he's worked at main dealers for many, many years and did his apprenticeship there. He's absolutely brilliant - better in my opinion than the Audi dealership I used to use and at a fraction of the price.

Last year Audi said that my discs and pads needed replacing - so I got my mechanic to have a look and he said they had another 25% life left in them. Audi take the proverbial - got another 6-8 months out of them before he replaced them. In those 6-8 months there was no degradation to braking, so I don't trust Audi anymore - they are too quick to replace parts unnecessarily that still have plenty of life left.

When he came to do my discs and pads it was around £350 - just had a service week before last £180 for an oil change all filters including pollen and he rigorously checks the vehicle all over.

I'm happy and did pay the Audi price - 4 years and 50K miles servicing with brakes on a £53K car has cost around me £1800.00, or 3%, my feeling is if you can't afford to pay the dealer prices, you shouldn't be running such a car. Surely people shouldn't be scrimping and saving on such costs to run the vehicle

It isn't a case of scrimping and saving. It is a well known fact that dealers make most of their profits on servicing and not retail sales. I can happily afford to buy and run a SQ5 but am not prepared to fund the vast new showrooms and sales staff who from experience don't know one end of an Audi from another. Just my humble opinion on the matter and I'm sure there will be views to the contrary. I count myself very fortunate that I have access to an excellent award winning independent Audi garage who service the vehicle meticulously and don't issue advisories on things that are fine and don't need replacing.

sorry cant agree...dealers charge twice the labour charge of a decent indy garage and they will get similar quality parts for half the price of a main dealer...once done you wont know the difference but have plenty money left.
