I had a simliar story when I scheduled my allroad for the 50K service.
They said Audi has been much more of a pain in the butt about this
lately. So, they said to make sure it was under 50K, so mine had
49,920 miles when I got it there! It is hard because the dealer is
backed up sometimes!
They had to order a couple of parts for mine so I took it back with >
50K and they said they'd have to check but Audi might not cover it
because it is over 50K. I had a fit and said that just because you
guys said it needed parts and didn't stock them that I shouldn't have
to pay to get them put in when you finally got them in. They were
sympathetic and said don't worry, they just had to talk with the Audi
service rep, but that there was a chance I'd have to foot about 25% of
the bill (or about $400). It turned out OK, but I was about ready bo
blow my top!
This was my first Audi under waranty and I'm kinda glad I work on my
own cars... Much less hassle! :)
