In October 2003 European Union Legislation affecting the motor trade came into force. This legislation changes the way cars may be serviced and repaired and gives motorists a lot more freedom in their decision as to who should look after their cars. Before BER, it was difficult to have cars, which were still covered by the manufacturer`s warranty, serviced anywhere except at a franchised dealer.
Now motorists can use any garage of their choice to service their cars without invalidating the manufacturer`s warranty.

Your vehicle may require the Longlife Service or Inspection Service
Audi/VW have the technology which can access a range of varying factors, such as driving style and operating conditions, calculating the vehicle maintenance intervals on a flexible basis. At minimum it is an Inspection Service and will always involve an oil change at the very least. From factory, your vehicles will have been set for longlife service and filled with specific oil. You need to use specific oil developed for this purpose, meeting the correct manufacturer specifications, of which we at Elite Auto Works always have and only ever use.
Unlike the longlife service, the inspection service has fixed intervals. You may decide against the longlife service or if the correct specific oil is not used, and so your vehicle will need to follow the inspection service scheduling. This will generally runs as an Oil Service every 10,000 miles (or 12 months) and an Inspection Service every 20,000 miles (or 24 months). The latter being a minimum of an oil change plus any required maintenance of filter replacement dependent either upon vehicle inspection or age/mileage related specification.
