My error - thought I'd indicated the 3.0T, but I guess I did that in another post, not this one. Corrected above.

Mea Culpa.

So, on your 3.0T IIRC you are basically on the 60K, 6 year schedule for plugs. The first plug change was apparently done "by the book" and thus by time in your car's case, not by miles. It technically was earlier of 55K or 6 years. After first one, it goes to every 60K as the algorithm on 3.0T's. First one has that 5K shortened increment as an artifact of the first 5K oil service. Audi cheaped out on that starting with 2017's, where it just goes to 10K for first service and 60K for major.

Net, in your case, the next spark plug service would be 60K miles from 21K = 81K, or 6 years from whatever date that prior service was. I'm personally not to slavish on the time one when it is 4 year intervals like on my S8. But 6 years for a plug set does seem plenty long between changes--long term heat cycling, corrosion scenarios, etc. As car gets older, I also just want to pull occasionally to see if temp looks right and plug is free of oil and carbon fouling.

The Beast is back, and aside from the intoxicating smell of excess cleaner/lubricant in my cabin (now three days later), the car is like a speeding bullet. Noticed a strange wind whoosh noise, coming from the bottom of the driver door, when in a fierce crosswind (did I mention the speedometer read 118 at the time?).......
Not going to worry about this one at all since that number is rarely seen

Yesterday's 600 mile round trip through PA mountains and into a steady 15-20 mph headwind netted 26.0 MPG measured by actual fuel use. The Trip meter said 27.2 MPG. This is 1.5-2.4 MPG better than any previous trip I've taken since buying the car. Could the 35k service have helped?
