Your Audi vehicle is one of the most important investments you will make. We know that keeping your car in good condition is important. More to the point, we know how important it is to preserve its longevity. With simple services, like oil changes, you can do so with ease.

Why are oil changes so important, though? What do they do to aid your Audi model?

When you drive often, your oil accrues dirt, sludge, and other particles. The more you drive around, the more your oil will get dirty. As your oil gets dirtier, more friction begins to build up in your engine. This creates more heat, which can hurt your engine irreparably if not addressed. That is why changing your oil is so important. It changes out your dirty oil for clean oil. It also reduces that friction and preserves your Audi model’s longevity.

Additionally, changing your oil helps return your vehicle’s efficiency to normal. Dirty oil reduces your engine’s efficacy. When you change it, your vehicle can return to its usual efficiency.

So when should you get your oil changed?

The basic rule of thumb is simple. You should bring your Audi model in either every 10,000 miles or 12 months (whichever comes first). However, your Audi models’ user manual will have more specific guidelines to follow.
