Oil Change (frequency?)

Hi - -

Just bought a 2005 A4 1.8T Quattro - - love it!

Audi covers 5K, 15K, 25K, 35K, and 45K, and my local (Audi) service tells me they'll provide full synthetic oil changes. Anyone out there changing (synthetic) oil more frequently?

with today's oil technology 5k intervals is perfectly fine. just check your oil regularly. my dealer has the same policy on my allroad.. it goes in for service every 5000 miles
Thanks for your message. Please allow me to clarify / make sure I understand. So - - you suggest / follow a 5,000 mile service interval? (My dealer / Audi, under new car coverage, will only do this every 10,000 miles, starting at 5,000 - - so, 5K, 15K, 25K, 35K, 45K).

If I read your note correctly, sounds like I should spring for the "in-between" changes (10K, 20K, 30K, 40K), so that the synthetic oil / filter are changed *every* 5K miles. . .

Does that sound right?
