    Ł99 + VAT per hour

    This is how much audi want to charge me for looking at my car.

    I have already taken it to an auto electrician and they couldnt tell me what was wrong with it they told me to take it to audi as they had the correct equipment to do it with.


    Is there anywhere else I can take it that isnt going to rip me off as much ?

    You could try JBS Autodesigns - VAG specialist in Chesterfield.

    I have it booked in at JBS now they charge £45+ VAT an hour so half the price of audi.

    for the record
    stoke audi £90 + VAT per hour
    derby audi £99 + VAT per hour

    That was my major gripe with taking it to audi

    they charge me Ł100 and hour and pay someone Ł6 an hour
    so I am getting Ł6 an hour worth of work done at a stupendous cost.

    this is why i use jabba sport to service my car, the S3 is the first car ive not serviced myself as i want to keep the fully stamped service history but im not going to pay over the top price's for some one to change my oil. Although anywork that does not appear in the book i've done, e.g. brake pads and discs.
