How do I know if my Audi service is due?
How often you require a service depends on how much you use your Audi. On average, we recommend a service every 12 months, or every 12,000 miles.
In fact, that’s how long our labour and parts are guaranteed for – so with us, you know exactly when to expect your next service. Plus, we notify you 4 weeks in advance of your next visit.
Some models also benefit from an interim service – if you’re not sure how regularly you require a service, the team will assess your vehicle and usage to determine the best service plan for you.
Are you able to service my Audi without it affecting the warranty?
Absolutely. There’s a common misunderstanding that independent garages can’t service cars under warranty – however, recent changes in legislation mean that Audi drivers can now choose whichever garage they wish for servicing and repairs, without affecting the manufacture warranty.
We’re fully trained in Audi code of practice for all servicing and repairs, and we will update your vehicle’s service history in full. This aids you in gaining a higher resale value should you ever wish to sell your car.
What happens during an Audi service? What do you check/replace?
Lighting & Visibility – The front, rear, and internal lights are rigorously checked for optimal performance. All windows, mirrors, and wipers are reviewed for chips, faults, and weak areas. Registration plates are cleaned and maintained for clarity and sturdiness.
Under Bonnet – A full under bonnet inspection ensures there are no leaks or faults, and all components are in working order. Where required, we replace the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, and drive belts.
Vehicle Interior – Seat belts are tested in line with safety standards. All internal controls are checked, such as the horn, hazard light button, and other vehicle controls for responsiveness and function. Using diagnostics, we complete full system analysis. This includes reviewing the air conditioning, making sure warning messages are addressed, and checking for intermittent and permanent faults flagged by the computer.
Steering, Drive & Suspension – Wheel alignment is analysed, and all joints, gaiters (protective sleeves on vehicle parts), and wheel bearings are extensively inspected for sturdiness and function. . The front and rear shock absorbers and road springs are tested to ensure the suspension functions effectively and maintains the right level of friction.
Braking – Both the front and rear brake mechanisms are checked and measured in line with safety requirements, allowing us to accurately report on their service life.
Under Vehicle – The trays under your car are removed and the engine oil is drained. The transmission is then checked for leaks, rust, and corrosion.
Tyre Inspection – All wheels and wheel nuts are inspected for sturdiness, weak points, and corrosion. Tyres reads are inspected for significant wear, and tyre pressures are adjusted prior to refitting. We also check your spare wheel and/or inflation kit if appropriate for your vehicle.
Final Checks – We assess the brake fluid and conduct an antifreeze test – crucial for road safety, especially during winter months. Finally, we fill your engine with new oil – this is vital for engine cleanliness and performance.
