Offered recommendations assume independent performance of procedures of service of the car by its owner unlike the works which are carried out on a car repair shop of representation branch of company AUDI. Though the given schedule is made on the basis of manufacturer recommendations, intervals between the majority of procedures, at the discretion of the owner of the car, it is possible to reduce, for example, check and replacement of greasings and liquids should be made with the intervals providing the maximum service life of the engine or a drive. Besides, if the owner of the car is interested in supporting it in a condition of the maximum readiness for operation on a case of the possible resale, many procedures can be carried out more often. We only welcome the similar initiative.

Initial service and check of the new car should be made on a car repair shop of representation branch of firm for the purpose of performance of conditions of the guarantee certificate. In most cases such check is made free of charge (for the further information address in representation branch of firm).
