Looking to change the oil on my new Audi A6. I do not want to go to the dealer and overpay. Any suggestions?

Jack car up
get under car with oil catch pan
turn oil plug until loose
let oil drain into pan
grab oil filter with hand
turn loose until off
put new filter on until tight
tighten oil plug on after all oil is drained out
get up from under car
open hood
take off oil cap
fill up car with desired oil and required quantity
close oil cap
turn car on
turn car off after 2 minutes
pull orange dipstick out
check oil level, if more is needed, add more.
close hood.

DONE!

Thanks for the directional advice. There is a reason why I drive the 2011 model. That is because I am very busy working. No time. Also, if you look under this car, there are about 25 clips you must remove before the shield comes of. Time vs. Money factor is not rational. But thank you!

then just take it to the dealer! IMO not worth posting about it and looking for a deal

Any Jiffy Lube should do the trick! [up]

Probably just as expensive as the dealer. It amazes me when people buy a $60k car and want to save $50- $100 on a oil change. That's just me though. When you go to trade it in or sell they would have the records on file. That's a good thing.

The dealer would take at lease half a day and no I do not want a loaner car for half a day. A good mechanic would do it in 30 mins time. It's a lease!

As long as the mechanic uses OEM filters and has the correct oil, I don't see a problem with going there. I just prefer the dealer because then I can build a repoire with them should the vehicle have issues in the future outside of warranty. Plus they can catch anything that would be covered under warranty while it's in the shop. That's saves a trip to the dealer after getting an oil change. Combine that with the free rinse and loaner car, which I don't mind dropping off at the end of the day, is the reason why I prefer the dealer while my car is still under warranty.

Don't EVER.... EVER go to pep boys. They will spill oil everywhere. Not put enough in. I didn't have time to do mine either (CEO) and I took it to pep boys because I just couldn't do it in time to keep up with my strict 3k oil change (haha). Got it back, oil in my interior. Oil covered the inside. Sloppy. Never will I let another shitty place touch my car again.

^^^
a couple of observations....
1. Changing oil every 3000 miles is a waste of money. Audi service intervals are 10,000 using full synthetic.
2. Not everyone has time to change their own oil. But Pep Boy's? Really!? Doesn't the adage "you get what you pay for" apply here?
3. Being a "CEO", you should be able to afford Jiffy Lube at a minimum.

If you were in Ohio, I could recommend someone but since you are in Boston unfortunately I can't.
