this should reset it but bear in mind you need the dealer diagnostic VAG com to set it up properly with variable miles etc

On the dash of your Audi there are 3 buttons under the fuel gauge,from left to right the 1st one just forget about & the other 2 we will call 'A' & 'B' (B =closest to fuel gauge). & hold button 'A'

2.switch ignition 'ON'

3.release button 'A'

4,the words 'SERVICE' or 'Service in xxxx MI' will appear in the trip recorder display.
5,now press button 'B' until the display clears & is replaced with the new service interval or 'SERVICE'

6.switch ignition 'OFF'

Hi I'm Kevin the inspection light cannot be reset without diagnostic tool of some description you can reset oil service through mmi but the inspection can only be done using scantool most garages can do this nowadays it takes literally about 2 minutes
