    Need and independent garage near Bury St Edmunds or Cambridge

    Hi all,

    My A3 needs a diagnostics check and service as my glowplug and emissions controls lamps are showing on the instrument panel Neither Bury St Edmunds Audi or Cambridge Vindis Audi can take my car until the 20th or 23rd of this month by which time the problem(s) could be a hell of a lot worse.

    Anyone know of any qualified independents in Cambridge/Newmarket/Bury St Edmunds who can perform Audi diagnostics and maybe fix the problem? I really need someone good, not a chancer

    Thanks.

    Thanks eatdegrub, had to call Audi roadside assistance this morning because of loss of power in the car. They've organised a hire car and are putting it into the garage, a problem with Piezo injector #4. According to the guy who was out with us, this is a known problem on the early CR engines (like mine).

    I'll keep the D-tech details to hand though!

    Surely if your A3 has a CR diesel engine it must be less than 3 years old and is therefore covered by warranty. If you take it to a dealer and they find something wrong it will be sorted under warranty. If you take it to an independent garage they will not be able to sort it under warranty.
