    Trustworthy VAG specialists in the north west?

    Any recommendations? I need a CV boot changing and don't have the facilities to do it myself (I live in a flat and the weather outside isn't exactly ideal) therefore I need a decent garage who understand S3 suspension etc. It's due it's MOT at the end of December so I'm on a time limit.

    Recommendations appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    Why not get MOT protection from Audi. It costs 50 and they'll protect your car up to 750 to pass it's
    MOT. the test itself is free...

    Double check the exceptions tho cos I'm not 100% sure what they are

    Cheers sub39h, but from previous experience I trust Audi less than an unknown garage!

    They certainly are, just wondered if there are any other options?

    Awesome GTI for me.

    And FYI, the Audi MOT protection is pointless as they won't find faults on your car deliberately, so they don't have to pay out. Bunch of arseholes if you ask me, had a lot of issues with one garage MOTing it, saying it was A OK, next branch I took it to told me rear shocks, rear springs and a few other things needed changing, so would cost me over 900 but told me the MOT protection wouldn't cover it as it had already been passed.

    VOSA had to get involved. Avoid.
