Got my DSG service done today..

Only $349 at a local stealership

What's next? I got 44,000

They say spark plugs but I don't think it's necessary for a stock car still. Do I need to upgrade once tuned?

Have you flushed the brakes? Should’ve been done at 30k/3 years. I did spark plugs at 40k just for peace of mind...mine looked pretty bad but I do have a jb4. It’s a very easy DIY job

never done brake fluid... a service sheet they gave me today, says brake fluid change at 3 years after initial registration, than every 2 years regardless of mileage

Seems excessive to me.

For what it's worth that is what the owner's manual recommends as well.

I can't find anything that says its mileage dependent? I'm going with 3 years from the day it was driven off the lot and every 2 years after that.

With 44,000 miles on the spark plugs I would definitely change them with a tune. And one step colder also.

It isn't a milage issue, its hydroscopic so it slowly absorbs water over time (regardless of use).

I thought it was supposed to be 40k miles.

Nah, it's a good recommendation for most people.

Much better than the lifelong fluid a lot of manufacturers state they use.


You'll notice a big difference flushing the brakes after even 2 years of normal driving.


My old m3 for instance stated every 1 year for brake fluid flush.
