I'm now in my 9th month of ownership with approx 9500miles on the clock and not had its first service. The last few days, each time I start the car up the service interval warning light comes up. Is this right as I thought the intervals are either 15000miles or 12 months? Otherwise does the warning suggest that there is a fault somewhere within the car? Appreciate some clarification. Many thanks Greg
Grego - see Gemset above post, this will clarify the situation, you need to get the car serviced.

Do you guys think it is normal to have the first service at 14400 km instead of 25000 km? The car is a XF S and it is now nine months old.
The "Service Required" sign came on yesterday but no other indications like "DPF full" or similar.

Hi, I'm after a bit of advice please.
I have just checked and my 2.7d had it's last service at 48000 miles, I'm now at 64,000 miles but I have not seen any service indicator at all, is this normal?
I do 90% motorway miles at an average speed of 50 mph over the last 8,000 miles, does this make any difference?
Service interval is 15,000 miles or 12 months whichever comes first, do not wait for the service indicator to tell you, it is only a guide. Going by your mileage you are overdue a service now, not a wise situation when a DPF is fitted.

Definitely get it serviced sooner not later. DPFs result in the engine oil being diluted with fuel. Eventually the oil stops lubricating the engine and ----BANG.
FWIW Audi now stipulate mandatory oil changes every 9000 miles for cars used in town to maintain the warranty. For comparison, the service interval for high mileage motorway use is ca 15k. That's what a DPF does to your oil.
