    Do they both include an oil change or is this the interim service?

    Cars in and needs both Iím being told and I canít work out if Iím being overcharged etc

    Mileage is dictating Inspection - no issues - should that though include oil change? Some places I read it does but Iím being told that it also needs the oil change which is Interim Service...therefore need both?

    So Iím totally confused

    Not sure. I had 2 x 'free services' included in my purchase price. One of those was an inspection but did include oil; the second was an inspection/service but required me to pay for parts (labour not charged)

    Itís very confusing because Iím being told I need both...Iíve said fine and agreed a price but waiting for Audi CS clarification.

    Also disappointing that my dealers have pulled out of fixed price servicing hence a little negotiation saving a £120 on initial quote


    Edit: Inspection service does not include oil change as confirmed by Audi CS. However some service centres may do this as part of the inspection service

    So umm this will actually make me think more about using independents now rather than my main dealer (which I know I couldíve done this time but have always done servicing etc through main dealer for various reasons) - shame for them really

    ... it's madness when there's no uniformity between Audi Dealerships, it's so fragmented

    I think we will need to vote an maintain a nationwide list of best rated independents up and down the country on here at this rate..LOL

    My understanding is that Interim/Minor service = oil service; full/major = oil service with inspection.

    Audi Service plan covers two consecutive services (a minor and major in my dealership's term) which Audi's official words are:

    1 x Oil Service:
    - Vehicle health check


    1 x Oil service and inspection
    - Pollen filter change (if required)
    - Full Vehicle inspection and report to include all lights, instruments, glass, braking system etc.
    - Full vehicle road test
    - Vehicle health check
    - Spark plugs (if required)
    - Fuel filter, where required
    - Air filter, where required

    How much did you pay? for 3+ year old vehicle, the official Audi quote are £210 for Interim/Minor/oil change, and £399 for Major/Full/Oil+inspection
    Q7 272PS S-Line | Tech Pack | Dyn Pack | Tour Pack Adv | Leather Pack | Park Assist Pack | Comfort & Sound Pack | All-Wheel Steering | Matrix | Pan Roof | Drv+Pass Mem Seats | Full Valcona | Heated Rear Seats | Night Vision | BOSE | Heat+Snd Ins Glass | Heated Windscreen | Heated Steering Wheel | Adv Key | Side Assist | Air Susp | Ambient Lighting | Heated Mirrors | 360 Cameras | Rear Airbags | Glacier White | Gloss Black Alloys | Carbon Door Mirrors | Black Roof Rails | Rear Sunblinds | Audi LED Entry Lights | De-badged
