    VAG Specialists in or near Bristol/Bath

    Afternoon chaps,

    can anyone recommend a VAG Specialist in or near Bristol/Bath?

    I've searched the forum, but the ones I've seen recommended are near London/M25 which is rather a long journey for us West Country Folk

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Stuff on the todo list includes... Brake Fluid change, Rear Discs, Front+Rear Brake Pads and the ARB bushes. Probably need the front drivers side ABS sensor replacing - will be checking the fault code with a VAG COM I've ordered on eBay, as it could be the lateral sensor that lives behind the glovebox (which I can do).

    I don't have access to a drive/garage to be able to safely carry out the work. Not keen paying Audi Dealer prices as the car is out of warranty and I was hoping to spend my money on a suspension upgrade - now on hold

    I might be able to get some(*) of the work done at my brother's (he has a drive + garage + tools), but he lives up on Merseyside which is a bit of way to go so it's Petrol vs. Labour and convenience for a local VAG Specialist.

    (*) I believe that the brake fluid change on an S3 needs some jiggery-pokery with a VAG-COM to ensure that the brakes are bleed properly and it's best left to the experts.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Hi MarkyB,
    We are not VW specialists, but are your local Bosch Car Service centre. We are based in Temple Cloud Nr Bristol and have All Bosch diagnostic equipment as well as Vag-Com and VW 5053 software. Our labour rate is 40 per hour which is much cheaper than many in Central Bristol. if you have not got yourself sorted yet, then please let me know and I will supply some contact details.
    Many thanks in advance,
    PGMS
