Interim Service or Major Service?

My beautiful A3's first service is due now... its two years old, has done just over 16k, and has already had the oil changed (I changed it myself to Castrol Edge at around 8k.. thought it would be best after the running in period).

Anyway, will this be classed as a major service, or an interim one? Its on its long life plan if that makes any difference - but Ive been told to take it off this - why?

Thanks :)

Major service 70 k or three years ? And take it off longlife because its to few oil changes ,Not good for your car /turbo etc .

Okay, thanks, so should be interim then?

How come the long life plan is frowned upon? My plan was to change the oil every 12 months, then have it serviced when it flashed up on the long life plan?
