:eek: I've got my GTI in right now for the 50K service. They are changing oil, air filter and plugs!

They want $165 to change my plugs. Can someone please tell me why it costs $165 to change plugs on this car?????

'Cause they're screwing you. On the MKV, you don't need to change plugs until 120K, according to the owners manual, if I read that correctly.

My manual says to replace them at 60K (2.0L TFSI only)

Double check your manual, Dragon and NVGTI
Good catch. Thanks. But $165? $41.25 each? WTF?

Yeah, you're right it is at 60K... so they were 10K early... better than 70K early I guess! Still crazy price... why so much? Are they that difficult to get to?
