Insane price. Like everyone said, many of these items are very simple.

I would love to see the line-by-line breakdown of this service, parts, labor, etc.

Surely some form of lube would be itemized and billed as well.

Oil change
Tire rotation
Fuel filter
Cabin filter
SRI reset
DEF fill
I got all that done plus a brake fluid flush for $335.32 out the door so I guess I didn't do too badly price wise. It was a Tucson VW dealership. I know I could have done it myself but they did it all in less than 2 hours and I have the peace of mind that the correct fluids were used.

Just make sure there isn't something else on there because I've read the dealership tracks service via VIN so you might ask for a "20K service" but the VIN automatically spits out that service plus a DSG service (for example).

If you can't get service from Matt, there is another Matt up in Medford. He's a BMW guy but I know his shop works on VW gassers, too, and he can follow directions and read an oil can label, which is more than I can say for the dealerships with any certainty!

Would be good to have someone up there as well since i'm in Southern O a lot. I'd appreciate his contact.
Probably i'll get this done with Matt or Greg down here.
Greg @ Autohuas quoted $375 w/ out the tire rotation $400 with it.
I'm hoping matt's quote will be a little less.

Thanks for all the replies!
I'm not much of a DIY guy when it comes to modern cars.
Now that i got a couple good alternatives to the dealer my DPF light just went on!
Since i'm under warranty i'll probably have to go into them for this reason but still get the service elsewhere.
Just said Diesel Particulate Filter and an icon for it stayed on. Didn't say what was up with it.

Probably/hopefully it just needs to driven for more than 10 miles to allow for a good regeneration

Here's the shop:

http://aaronsautowerks.com
Aaron is the BMW equivalent of our gurus around here.
Matt is his VW guy; not TDIs but he can certainly handle service issues.

If you like Harley's you can go to my dad's shop but let's save that for when you're down and out because it's stressful watching him gorilla his way around German engineering to put it politely :P

Yeah, the light was off when i drove today! Lately i haven't been driving much. Probably drove under 7 mi when it came on the other day.
I thought the re-gen could finish on it's own w/ out having to drive during them.

It won't regenerate while the engine is off. If you get out of your car while its regenerating the fans will kick on to cool everything down and it resets a regeneration to restart some time down the road. The only way to tell before you turn off the car (if you're not running gauges) is if the idle kicks up to about 1k.
