yeah... 360+ is with everything.

but if you change your own spark plugs, pollen filter and air filter it's down to about 100+

what do you get for the 80K "service"? Spark plugs, pollen and air filter is about 50 bucks in parts if that. $360 for that is insane to pay.

Anyone have a list of what is done?
Scheduled maintenance can be found HERE

I did all the maintenance myself (spark plugs, air filter, cabin filter, etc) so my 40K service only cost me $40. Thanks ClubB5!

Yep...from now on, I only go in every 20K and that is just for the "check this and check that" things only the dealer can do...

Just a quick clarification - my cost at the DEALER was $40 for their required checks. I didn't include the things I did in that price...

I couldn't find a write-up on how to change the cabin, and air filter so could some one tell me the specifics on how to/pics, where to get the filters for cheap?
Thank You- Ryan :thumbup:

you could buy one of those Haynes manuals or what not, and they'll have step by step instructions with pictures. i think it's around $15 at Pep boys. air filter can be a pain, but cabin filter is pretty easy. spark plugs aren't that hard either.

Get yourself a Bently Manual. They are pricey, but you could practically rebuild your entire engine with the information and diagrams that are in it. :wink:

It says to replace the timing belt and tensioner at 105000 miles for the 1.8t. How much would that be?

It comes up when I look at it.

Timing Belt check - 40k and 80k
Timing Belt replace - 105k
Timing Belt tensioner replace - 105k

Of course, nobody here would wait that long to replace the TB and tensioner.
