    Service interval query, 20,000 or 9500??

    Servicing - VW dealer or local garage?

    My 2019 T6 is asking for an inspection (I'm assuming it means a service). I've done 35,000 miles. Do I have to take it to my inept VW van centre, or can I take it to my friendly local garage? What are the benefits or taking it to VW (if any)? I'm guessing the bulk of the service is an oil...

    Garage recommendation in Bristol?

    Hi All, Where would you recommend I go for my vans first service? Ideally in, or near Bristol (12,000 miles)? I have previously used Heritage Automotive, Bristol but they can be terrible!! Am I being silly not going back to them? After all it's just a service? I had an Ad Blue error code pop...

    Main dealer or Independent? 50k service

    Hi, VW called me this week to say, your van is due its 50k major service and MOT. Their cost for this service is £400 + the MOT £. My question to you guys is; do I do this service with VW to keep the full main dealer service history or go to a local independent specialist? Thoughts on a...

    Sliding door maintenance

    Just wondered if there was any advice / VW schedule for maintaining the sliding door(s)? I guess keeping roller bearings and latches well lubricated and checking slider mechanism fixings for tightness are the things that spring to mind. Anything else to consider? There have been a few threads...

    Levelling ramps, easy to use with DSG?

    I am thinking about getting some levelling ramps. However as I have never used them before I am wondering how easy/difficult it is to control driving onto them with a DSG box. My worry is the risk of driving straight over them and if you did is it much of a disaster, which Im guessing depends...

    Independent servicing – what’s needed?

    I really like my local garage. I neither like nor trust my local VW dealership (long story - previous car). I’ve had my T6 a year. The MOT’s due and it might as well be serviced (?). It’s on a “Q18” flexible service schedule. "Long-life" oil was used at the 27k oil change in early 2018 – but...

    VW Dealer for service near Sheffield

    Hi there. I've been inspired by @fezza68's helpful thread RE dealers in the NW. I have a VW Service plan for next 2 services, and therefore am tied to a VW Dealer. I didn't have the best experience last time I popped in to JCT600, Sheffield, and therefore wondering about other options...
