    Is that the dealer price? I see several people in this thread saying the cost of this is less than half of that, though they live in the UK.

    Yeah in the UK it's less than £500. About £420-480 Inc VAT (tax). So that would equate to about $600. You guys in the US seem to get cracking warranty deals but not so much on parts and servicing etc.

    Carbon clean for some reason is expensive in the US. Every shop I've asked quoted me 1500+ (V10).

The yellow check engine light just came on this morning as I was driving to work. No performance change noticed etc... but I've been warned by several people out at the track that around 50-60k is when you want to start thinking about getting the carbon cleaned out of the ports. I would like to get an idea of what others paid at a dealer to have it done before I take mine in to get a quote.
    I had the dealer in DE scratch their head then quote me $1500+. Got it done at a local Audi specialist 10 minutes from the dealer for $850 (V8).
