They just invent a ridiculous figure to rip you off.
I would be getting a price from a range of places so you can try and get an affordable price.

Varies from dealer to dealer, region to region. Why don't your ring the dealer and ask? Make sure you're sitting down though! My dealer wanted £500 for first service on my S5, indy is doing it for £150.

Three years means you also should have the brake fluid replaced. Just had my three years service done and I wasn't charged for the fluid change or the MOT. Plus I have been only paying on a service plan at £9.56 a month.
Not all dealership's are thieves or try to rip you off..

Hi mate, as an idea Cheshire Oaks wanted £421 for my second service! Took it to Martin at Unit20 near Neston £198 for exactly the same thing. He also gives you a paper copy of the service record showing the vin, what service was done, when and the milage so that you can show the next buyer....he also updates it online.

Just go down there and look what cars he has in the workshop....it's all RS's, Gti's, S's, TT's with the odd Bentley and Aston Martin thrown in.

PS: I'm going back there next Wednesday to have 2 tyres put on, he came out cheaper than a lot of places!

Can take it elsewhere. Mines on PCP, Audi will likely give you less on hand in as not FASH, however as long as genuine parts etc are used, you'll be absolutely fine for warranty and PCP.

Try Martin mate, he can do the MOT as well....if you want fire me a pm with your details, reg and miles and I'll ask him on wednesday, he's in Japan at the moment for the rugby tomorrow :)
As for servicing in pcp, mine is pcp and it's not a problem, he does everything that should be done, he's approved and he uses genuine Audi parts. I even contacted Audi finance and asked the question...this is the answer:

Good afternoon Mr X

Thank you for contacting Audi Financial Services.

In regards to having your vehicle serviced, the servicing does not need to take place at an Audi garage, we would always recommend using an Audi approved garage and genuine Audi approved parts are required.

If Audi approved parts are used this should not result in additional charges when handing the vehicle back.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.

£700 for your second service? Really? What did you have done for that? That's ridiculous.

My second service was £352 after discount my estimate for the OP 3rd service was £700

I booked in a few weeks back for the service, he asked if I needed a car, I said I'd bring it in early and wait, just over an hour later I was on my way out all done :)

Mine may take a bit longer as will be sorting the mot aswell
Yeah that's true, if you want and if you haven't heard back from him on Monday, let me know and I'll ask him on Wednesday. Like I say he's in Japan over the weekend, so he may be behind with quotes etc. I wouldn't leave my car with anyone I didn't trust, but I would trust these guys! Apparently they are big and have a excellent name on the RS forums as well!

Yeah but what can you do?!?! The joys of owning a car :(

Yeah does seem a bit daft, it's like having a bath and then putting dirty underwear back on :p When I was chatting with him the other day he did say that they do a lot of filter/liquid changes as standard that Audi don't do on their services! So it will be interesting to see what he says :)

I sent him a FB message, told him you'd contacted them and told him about Audi not doing the filter clean, this is his answer:
