View Full Version : Oil Change

Since this was the first time that the oil change wasn't covered by Audi I decided to do it myself. All I have to say is that My 2004 A8L is the biggest pain in the ass to change the oil. Just to get to the Oil filter you have to remove the airbox. Then you have to refill the beast with 2 Gallons of oil. All in all I saved myself 200 dollars. So it was worth it.

removed the airbox? do you mean air dam? Ive never done an oil change on a D3 but I cant imagine it would differ that much.

Yes the Airbox! There is a cartridge style filter that is under the Airbox. It was a major pain in the ass.

damn, but remember the joy in the money you saved by not taking it to the dealership
