Re: Resetting Oil Service Indicator

Resetting this "gentle reminder" PITA requires use of a VAG 1551/1552
computer.  It will only cost you about $3-4K should you decide to purchase
one or the other.  

Now all together - fall to your knees and repeats 100 times "Thank you, O
Audi gods."  

Your dealer *should* do it for free.  Wanna bet?
