    Audi pricing..... A pleasant surprise.

    Just phoned up my local Audi dealer for some prices, and was pleasantly surprised for once.

    I need some front ARB bushes as mine are shot and MOT time looms. Been looking about, don't want to spend the money on poly ones, just want some OEM ones.

    Searched high and low on the usual, GSF, ECP, couldn't find any. Found some on the web for Ł16 each. No thanks.

    Phoned Audi. On the shelf. Ł4.62 each. Sweet.

    Then I asked about a front strut brace, as I want one due to my factory one (yes it did have one) going walkies before I owned it....

    Ł62.83 plus VAT. I thought that was incredibly cheap for something like that! (Also - part number for it is 8L9 805 629A if you're interested)

    Audi are in my good books today - after ripping me off for a timing chain tensioner!

    I think so - but I'm always a bit sus to be honest.... The word 'Free' always rings alarm bells in my head. NOTHING is free these days....

    Car is OK. I'm not saying too much though. Up to 550 now so on the home straight.

    Hmm true.. They'd probably lie and say somethings wrong when its not and charge you silly money to fix it. Haha good advertisement! Print it out and stick it on the dealers glass doors!
