Does anyone know if the MK IV has a service indicator light on the dash. Mine's just ticked over the 40,000 mark. I'm booking it in for a service anyway, but just wondered if the car gives you any indication as to when it wants a service?

yes it comes up saying service in the display, if its on long life servicing it detects when its needed so not done by millage like 40k or 50k. so i belive

Don't think it's on longlife (service book doesn't indicate so). Would you recommend getting it service now (just ticked past 40,000) or waiting until the service light comes on?

hello mate .... ive just had a 40k service done on mine at vw ... i bought mine from vw and had it changed from longlife to "10k" service ... the dash actually said it needed to be serviced 9k after its last one which i assume is because the car's computer knew it had been driven well hence earlier service ... full service cost £ 305 off vw but with haldex and brakefluid change plus software upgrade it came to £ 410 .... still not too bad for the type of car it is ... plus i wouldn't touch an R32 without everything being changed at the right interval when i sell it !
