Hello,

My 2012 TDI is needing the 40K service. I have 2 VW dealers here. One dealer quoted me $428, the other dealer quoted me 3 different packages, ranging from $649(basic), $749(value), $849(Premium). The basic is VW Service shedule, the Value adds a diesel fuel cleaner, and the Premium adds the diesel fuel cleaner and FLUSHES it thru the system.

My question: Is this really needed?? (the diesel cleaner).

Any thoughts appreciated from you guru's!!!

You only need diesel fuel cleaner if the fuel in your area is poor - and anyway a $10 bottle would work DIY !!!

As above on the flush.

You brake fluid should be changed at 3 years, thereafter every two.
