Hi,

First post from me, put a deposit down on a 08 3dr R32 with DSG with 14k miles at the weekend.
VW are offering me the next 2 services for £299 so I'm after some information to see if this is worth it or not.
What are the service intervals for the R32? I assume they are age/mileage dependent too. We will only be doing 8k miles a year max so may hit age based service intervals rather than mileage ones.
What sort of money do VW charge for the relevant services too?

Thanks in advance, I'm sure I'll be back with a few more questions.

David

it will be worth it imo! maybe even consider a maintaince package too, which will cover all parts too, i.e the expensive brake discs and pads etc etc ;)

ive took out a service package for 299 in jan...covers my next two services (or 40k, 50k) and you get all mots and a brake fluid.  My 40k service would normally be 350 anyway so im £s in.  I figure that lot would be around 650 ish.

I did post up about it but was met with some resistance which i didnt really get! Includes filters, plugs etc.....

I signed up in jan for the offer but its not due til the summer!

Sounds like it's worth it then. I'm just waiting for the Dealer to come back to me with details of it's next due service and quotes for services from themselves.

What are the actual service intervals for the car?

Hmm i just had a 24k service last week at listers coventry for £217. So sounds like a good deal. Not sure how they can say £300 for a 20k service somewhere else?
'57 Mk V Reflex Silver.
DSG, Heated Recaros, MFD2, iPOD dock, so far all I think I am missing is cruise control and tinted windows...

For info, I rang three dealers for a 20k service quote. After playing them all off each other I got an initial quote of £315 down to £250 which I thought was very reasonable.
Not a bad saving for the price of a few calls so worth a try.
