Advice needed: Audi quotes Rs. 34,000 for my A4's first service

My Audi A4 is about to complete 1 year so the first service is due, though it has only clocked 4,000 Km so far.

BHPian sohels recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

My Audi A4 is about to complete 1 year so the first service is due (1 year or 15K KM, whichever is earlier). During this time, the car has only clocked 4K KM and looks and feels like new.

I have received the following estimate for 34K from Audi, details available in attached pics:

  • Parts: 17K
  • Labor: 12K
  • Tax: 5K
  • Total: 34K

Does this look right? Is it safe to skip replacing some items, given low mileage? Air or AC filters, for example?

Look forward to your thoughts!

Here's what BHPian Amey Kulkarni had to say on the matter:

You can take the decision after seeing the condition of the filters. I assume they'll be fine and can be skipped in this service based on the low usage. I'd even give the wheel alignment a skip.

Here's what BHPian viper 711 had to say on the matter:

Looks ok to me. As the car will be under warranty, the things you can skip are washing and alignment. The others are a part of the maintenance schedule. Do check the maintenance schedule in your owner manual. If the item is mentioned in it for the designated kms/time you have to get them done till the car is in warranty. This is from my experience in BLR.

Here's what BHPian goenkakushal had to say on the matter:

As per my experience you can check the following items:

  • GFF / Guided function (Please check what is this, as this was not charged to me)
  • Wheel Alignment (Not required as your vehicle running is only 4K kms)
  • 8w0133843e Air Filter (Air filter change was not required as per dealership as vehicle running was only 8k Kms)
  • Rs 1275+3060+3151.70= 7486
  • Total with GST =8833

If you can remove the above 3 items your estimate will drop to 26K. Otherwise the estimate seems to be fine.
