40K Mile Service booked

Recommended Posts

Car is approaching 3 years old but also approaching 40,000 miles so major service is required. 

Gone the full hog....

 

Major service including spark plugs and serviceable filters replaced, ramair filter will be cleaned too

DSG service

Haldex service including filter clean
 

Didn’t want to use VW as I just don’t trust them especially with the Haldex filter clean.

 

I have gone with BTG Performance in Newcastle, price is £540 all in.

 

I had some really varying quotes

 

Swift Engineering (VAG specialist) was £639

VW quoted £632, just wanted to use their quote as a bench mark.


JM Imports.......wait for it......£1020, don’t know what happened there, I know they have a great reputation, are an APR dealer and build mega power GTR’s but still!!

Had a similar 40k one done on both my Rs as both were bought around the 35k mark, got both mine done at VW as mine is a good one that sends you pics of the Haldex before and after cleaning
Those quotes vary a lot if I recall mine were around the £600 mark too.
Car will reward you for all the love I'm sure

£540 is a whole lot easier to swallow.   And Swift dearer than VW 😂😂.   I am interested to hear how this all pans out with. BTG.
 

I’ll drop you a pm re main dealer servicing.

A lot of people rave about Indy places but having contacted a lot of VAG ones near me most if not all have been more expensive that my local VW... I'm out of warranty now but if they can't beat VW Medway JCB then they won't get my custom...

Those quotes vary a fair bit!    Do they include Brake Fluid Change (due at 3 years) and MOT too?   At least it gets everything sorted and checked throughly, just before going out of factory warranty.  Hope it all goes smoothly.  Are you taking out an Extented Warranty?  Keeping the car a while?   
 

I’ve got year 5 service coming up on mine next month which is going to be a Major one, with MOT done at same time and Brake Fluid change also due. Plus will get Haldex done again this year.    Probably all around £600 mark.  All main dealer serviced as I have a good one.  Had DSG done in June (a little early at 34k miles), so one less thing on this months bill, but soon needing new tyres all round, possible new brake discs and pads, and car tax due, insurance renewal and Extended Warranty renewal, makes it mean it’s going to be a rough couple months month for the old bank account ££££.  Worth it though!

Na doesn’t include the brake fluid but It’s recently been done when I did the front and rear disc/pads.

 

I won’t be taking out an extended warranty, car is modified now so not much point.

I’ll be interested to see how you get on with BTG. Thinking of some further mods and they have a dyno which not many other Revo dealers have on the North East.

I'm at 31k miles and car will be 4 years old in November. I'm looking to do this service as well although my upcoming service is a minor one.

 

Is it too early for me to do a Haldex + DSG? I've never done either of them since owning from new though.

 

Should I wait till 40k miles / next year? If not...wondering if I should go VW or Indy. Though I don't know any good Indys in Watford, I'm sure there are many though.

Haldex is officially due at 30k miles (though many  of us on here get ours done more frequently) so I’d definitely get that done now. DSG is due at 40k for the 6sp box, but definitely won’t hurt to have it done early.  Had mine done early a month or so back at 33k miles.   
 

Guess it all depends on whether you’d prefer an Indy to do the service or happy with a main dealer, if your main dealer provides a good service experience (there are some that do).  Might be worth getting some quotes from recommended Indy places and take it from there. Hopefully someone can recommend one local to you.

Thanks - I think I'll get both done. I'll see if I can get an Indy to do it, need to do a bit of searching unless anyone on this forum knows of any....
