    Garages in and around Aberdeen

    Hey All

    Looking for a bit of local knowledge here. I've been staying in Aberdeen for a few years and have only ever used Aberdeen Audi for servicing. My 04 A3 now appears to need new rear pads and disc and possibly a new caliper as it has been binding a bit and was stated that it was binding on my last mot as an advisory.

    Reluctant to use Aberdeen Audi due to prices and past experience (I'm sure im not the only one). So any recommendations on good garages that are not out to rip you off or do a botch job would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    That's a good shout...

    That said, I'm happy doing brakes so long as you have the bits and things like the windback tool for the callipers if required (pretty sure they are needed...). I changed the callipers on my 10 plate A3 so been there already.

    Thanks for all the quick replies guys. Unfortunately I don't have all the tools needed plus I've never done it before so id rather see it done up close then give it a go next time round. ilim has got in touch with a mate to sort it for me so thank you all for offering advice and services. Inglis thanks for that, I already have the parts but I will take you up on that next time I'm looking for parts.

    Once again guys thanks a lot, glad I came here first before paying through the nose at Audi!

    Only go to Aberdeen Audi for warranty work, or to keep main dealer service history - never for out of pocket repairs.
