When you purchase an Audi, you will be advised to use a specialist Audi dealership to conduct all of your services. This is because they will have specialist knowledge about your particular model of car and will have easier access to parts if anything does need to be replaced. Included in the Audi service price is access to expert knowledge about the problems which might be common in your particular car and ways to prevent those problems from occurring or becoming worse. All garages have access to the information about any Audi, and when you use Autobutler to obtain 3 free quotes, you can be confident that the garages will follow the service manual, and maintain the warranty of the car.
Exactly how much you are asked to pay will depend on the particular model of your Audi.

How do I know it is time for an Audi service?
How you determine how often you need to service your Audi will depend on how often you drive it. If you mainly drive in towns and cities and only tend to use your car for short journeys, clocking up less than 10,000 miles per year, you should service your car according to a fixed schedule. This means that every 6 months or a year, you will take your car in to be serviced. If you regularly drive long distances on the motorway, and usually use your car for longer journeys, clocking up more than 10,000 miles each year, then it is recommended that you base your services on a flexible schedule. This means that instead of waiting for a particular amount of time to pass before booking your vehicle in for a service, you should service the car when you hit a certain number of miles driven. City drivers are recommended to book an oil change service every 9,000 miles or once a year and an inspection service every 19,000 miles or once a year. Motorway drivers are advised to book an oil change service and an inspection service every 19,000 miles or once every 2 years.
