Routine Servicing.

We pride ourselves on ensuring that you – and your car – receive the very highest level of care and service. No one understands Vorsprung durch Technik like we do, so to book a service with the people that know your Audi best, simply contact our service team.

Regular servicing is the way to ensure that your Audi maintains an optimum level of performance during its ownership cycle. A full service history can also enhance the potential resale value of a car.

When should I service my Audi?

This will depend on your driving style and the service schedule you use. At Audi, we offer two different service schedules: the fixed Inspection Service and the variable LongLife Service schedule. The conventional fixed Inspection Service schedule has fixed intervals for both the Oil-change Service and the Inspection Service, which are determined by time and distance (see table below).

Fixed Service Schedule Flexible Service Schedule
Recommended for: Less than 10,000 miles per annum. Mainly city/town centre driving. More than 10,000 miles per annum. Motorway and main road driving.
Oil-change service: Fixed to every 9,000*/ 1 year Variable to a maximum of 19,000 miles*/ 2 years
Inspection service: Fixed to every 19,000 miles*/ 2 years Variable to a maximum of 19,000 miles*/ 2 years

With the variable LongLife Service schedule, the Inspection Service intervals are also fixed but the Oil-change Service intervals are variable. Sensors take account of driving style and conditions to determine when the Oil-change Service is required and the driver is informed via the on-board service interval display.

When a vehicle is frequently used in the following conditions, we recommend the vehicle is on a fixed schedule, regardless of mileage:

  • Uneconomical driving styles, i.e. heavy acceleration and braking, constant use of high revs
  • High engine loading conditions, i.e. frequent towing and hill climbs

The choice of service schedule will depend on journey type and mileage as well as individual driving style and conditions. The table above can be used for guidance but your Audi Centre will help you to determine the most suitable Service schedule for you based on your individual circumstances and preferences.

* As indicated by the service interval display. Mileages are approximate as the Service Indicator system uses kilometres as its distance measurement.
