At Sutherland Performance we do more than just tuning, we take care of your Audi.

We carry out a very thorough service and believe strongly in preventative maintenance. This ensures your vehicle is always performing to its full potential, avoiding costly failures and potential inconveniences. Only the best genuine or Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM, meaning the same parts used by the manufacturer but without the branding added) parts and approved fluids are used. We are passionate about looking after your pride and joy the correct way. The Audi recommended service interval is every 12-months or 15,000km, whichever comes sooner.

We are aware that being without your vehicle can be a very inconvenient.  For your convenience we have loan cars available on request. These must be requested at the time of your service booking.

Common maintenance that come up during a service:

Air filter replacement
The air filter acts as a shield to keep out air particles that cause abrasion and damage to your engine. Changing your air filter at recommended intervals will help ensure your engine can breathe more efficiently. This can result in better fuel economy and performance. We recommend getting the air filer inspected every 30,000km.

Cambelt and water pump
The cambelt is probably the most crucial serviceable part of your engine. It’s job is to keep the top and bottom ends of the engine synchronised. If failure occurs, catastrophic damage can occur resulting in huge repair bills. Cambelt replacement intervals vary with different models. We will advise you when your vehicle is in for service whether replacement is due.

Air conditioning Cabin filter replacement
The cabin filter is responsible for filtering out dust, unpleasant odours, pollutants and other airborne particles from outside going into the air inside your vehicle. Overtime the pollen filter can become clogged from build-up of dust, residue from fumes and other materials which can put a strain on your heating and air conditioning systems. We recommend getting you cabin filter replaced every 2 years for protection against allergens and smells getting into your car and ensure correct operation of your air conditioning.

Brake Bleed
Your vehicle’s brake fluid is vital to ensure safe and effective braking and is often a neglected service item. The purpose of brake fluid is to transfer mechanical force (when the brake pedal is pressed) into hydraulic pressure to brake components and slow the vehicle down. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs moisture from the air and over time the amount of moisture in the brake fluid will increase. The recommended service interval for brake fluid is 2 years. However, as this is a safety item our technicians will test the amount of moisture in the brake fluid of your vehicle. If the level exceeds 2% the boiling point is dramatically reduced, and we will advise replacement.

Spark Plug Replacement
Spark plugs ignite a mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber of your engine to create combustion which in turn forces movement of the pistons in order to make your car run. Failing or worn spark plugs can cause misfiring which results in uneven acceleration, rough idling, increased fuel consumption and an increase in exhaust emissions. In extreme cases it can also result in engine damage. It is recommended to replace your Audi’s spark plugs every 60,000-90,000kms (depending on the model) as a preventative maintenance.

Fuel Filter Replacement
The fuel filter is responsible for filtering out impurities such as sediment that can build up in your fuel tank. An old fuel filter can cause the engine to stall, reduce power, cause misfires and damage to the fuel pump or injectors. Replacing the fuel filter at the recommended intervals (30,000-90,000km model dependant) can lead to an improvement in power, performance, fuel economy, as well as protecting your injectors and fuel pump.

Some of our Audi specific testimonials

Wow! Got to say that was the best drive home over the Rimutaka Hill!🙌🏽👍🏽 .... Took my RS4 in for a de-cat and stage 2 with switchable crackle. I am so pleased with the work and way out blown my expectation! Thanks again Joseph 👌🏽💪🏼

Vinnie van der LindeAudi RS4

Had my 2013 Audi A3 1.8T remapped by Joseph, the car is so much more responsive, greater power through the rev range and fuel economy hasn’t changed, which is great! Joseph provided excellent service and gave me further advice on how to make my car run better etc. - highly recommend!

Vishal Nagar2013 Audi A3 1.8T

Can't give Joseph high enough praise. We had someone else look at our Audi S4 with a leaking sports diff. Two weeks and a large bill later, we were no better off. Took it to Sutherland Performance and he found the fault within a day and once the parts were here, fixed in another day. Highly recommend these guys.

Andy BarkerAudi S4

High recommended! Joseph has done a fantastic job on my car, he recently remapped my Audi with a stage 2 (DPF/EGR Delete) + S-tronic tune. I am very happy with the result and most importantly there isn't any smoke from the DPF delete.
