hi. Is this the only oil for a A4 MY2012 2.0 Tdi, or is there cheaper same spec. How much does a A4 take to do an oil change ? can anybody do the oil change ? does the dealer have to do it and can I provide the oil to dealer ? Any idea on price of oil change from dealer Thanks.

It is the oil which an Audi garage would use (possibly in the form of Quantum, the non-retail brand of Castrol)
I think the A4 is about uses about 4.85L. Dealer would charge at least 10/L. There is nothing to stop you supplying the oil to a dealer, some may be a bit funny (as you are depriving them of a nice little earner!) but just go elsewhere.

Does it affect my warranty if I have my old garage who I trust do an oil change on my Audi A4, I have 2 years free servicing with Audi so I don't want it to affect that

If you have a free service then get Audi to change the oil of get a combined oil and inspection service.

Chris do/would Audi free servicing be only doing oil change when a due? ie mileage/time and not on request :confused: ...

So perhaps Redcar01 is thinking of taking advantage of low oil price and getting an oil change done now between intervals? :dunno: ...

I was only stating if he has free services then why would he get someone else to do it?

Fair enough take advantage of the cheap oil, who wouldn't.

Confused here... My MMI says oil change in 82 day and service in 213 days so i assume I pay for oil change then Audi do service under free service. Can i pay non Audi to do my oil change as i would buy the Edge on offer then pay local garage

Check your Terms and Conditions of your service plan or ring them up.

Oil change is simply what it says, service is combined oil and filter (air, pollen etc).

Audi may class an Oil Change as a service, so ring them and check either way.

I think your missing my point, what if terms & conditions state oil change/service will be done as per manufacturer guidelines thus he can't request an oil change when he pleases. So if he is between intervals of say time or mileage they may say sorry sir your not due one, so I thought he's asking if I buy oil and go get it done at indi will my service plan be void?

If you are on free servicing I would think oil change would be part of plan but like Chris has said you need to ring dealer as T&C of plan could vary depending on type of plan. I know my local dealer does their own group plans on servicing if you wish to buy.

OMG! and to think I got 3 x 4L delivered for 65 and@ current price be only 8L :( ...

TBH this was my 1st purchase of Castrol in 2yrs due to them being less quantity/more than Quantum, which I've been using past 2yrs :) ...

It's mental how Quantum is Castrol but rebadged!

My Audi free service is for one intermediate and one major service so do I need to pay for an oil change 180 days before the car needs a service ? can I have it done by an independent will it effect my warranty

If your independant is VAT registered and uses genuine parts then it won't affect your warranty.

Your intermediate is an oil change and major is the oil/inspection change.
