    Amazing price for a main dealer.

    My local main dealer wanted £500 for cambelt and water pump change. Got it done at a VW specialist using OEM parts for £310 in the end.

    Get a quote from an Indy, see if they price match. If not go somewhere else.

    I would definately look at an Indy too. Mainly because my local Audi dealer employs knuckle dragging monkeys!


    Skoda looks a good price though.

    Good price, but I'd still replace my belt with an elastic band before I went to an Audi Stealership. Last time I went in for a £99 service I ended up paying closer to £400 as they fooked up my sump plug and claimed it wasnt their fault! Never again, they can stick their £120 an hour labour rate.

    Paul,

    Have you tried F Cross VW in Grimsby? I've always used them for service on my Seat's and VW's and they've always been cheaper, gave me a courtesy car and top notch customer service.
    By the way, I'm from Grimsby do you have any mods to your car?

    No mods, bog standard. Normally i use Louth VW who are excellent and have a great reputation. However, my Audi is under warranty and the window switch needs fixing, hence Cleethorpes Audi can do both jobs. I dont really rate Cleethorpes Audi, but for warranty work i have to go there. Anyway, surely even they can manage a cam belt change..............

    I'm pretty sure the £399 doesn't include the water pump.

    If you dont ask, you dont get. I reckon now is a good time to get jobs done as most people will have one eye on xmas and leave any big jobs until the new year. Mechanics sat idle=good opportunity to negotiate.

    So the max you shoukd be paying from any Audi dealer is £399 for a cambelt change plus £30-£50 extra for the waterpump.....

    If you can get it for less, great, but certainly no more as that's the "fixed" price advertised on the audi uk web site...
