The following are the facts about this 1st service :
- Service at one year
- Kms completed 10043 at the time of service
- There is no damage or replacement required as my knowledge
- This is petrol car
- Handled carefully
I have another car Toyota Altis 1.8G This has been serviced two months back. It was second year service and I paid only aprrox. 3500/- Rs.. Toyota Altis also require service yearly.
Compare to these two cars Toyota Altis suppose to be considered premium and should be more expensive.
I am attaching an invoice here which I paid so it will give clear picture.
VW charges more like Audi
Apart from the Synthetic Lubrication and AC cleaning, I see nothing abnormal from what we get regularly from VW. Both jobs were unnecessary.

this professional series is only available with the dealership as per castrol website.
this oil is rs.950/= with taxes as i just bought a litre to top off my vehicle.
so the service cost is justifiable to be in the range of Rs.8000-9000.
i would like to add my two cents that one should follow the VW oil specifications as their engines are very sensitive to mineral oil and more so with diesel engine oil for which VW 505 01 specification is reqd. this specification oil is not available outside at all.
Mobil 1 also got VW spec oils, 501, 502 and 505.
