    Eek Robbing Audi!!!

    The wifes car needs its 3rd service, cambelt and MOT.

    So I calls Audi Liverpool today and they quote me:-

    £300 for the service
    £350 for the cambelt
    £50 for the MOT

    £700 pound in total which IMO is a joke, the car is a 1.6!!!

    I told the guy forget it, I'll ring around when he starts to offer lower prices, nah your alright yer have had your chance.

    I think the main dealer services can sling there hook and its gonna be a local jobbie.

    the £ aside, I never take my cars to the dealers for the 3rd service..no point as its out of warranty, always do it myself as its done right & its cheaper

    I don't blame you, just too lazy to do it myself now. VX wanted £308 plus £35 for a brake fluid change for a 4th and major service, got it done locally for around £220. Not bad for one of the most expensive cars VX do for a service imo.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    OUCH!!!!! £700 to service and routinely replace parts?? Liverpool Audi bought out the VW garage that I used to work at, and TBH the tech's were useless. Cars frequently went out with faults after services, includina GTTDI that hadn't had its timing checked properly after a new cambelt.

    Local / independant garage all the way I think

    Ouch, that is very expensive indeed; good luck with the phoning around hopefully you will get a better deal somewhere else...

    My Superb is £435 at Skoda or £350 at a recommended local indy, or £250 at my mates back street, the indy is VW parts and a water pump, problem with mine is the whole front has to come off to get to it.

    Not necessarily, what about the A2 or the A4?
