    Second Service

    Just been ringing round for quotes for the second variable service and thought the prices might be of interest to anyone in my area.
    Prices are for a 2.0TDi with manual gear box.

    Warrington - Ł232.41
    Bolton, Smith Knight Fay - Ł255.03
    Lancaster Audi (in Manchester) -Ł340.00

    Bolton have matched Warrington so it will be going there as it is more convenient for me.

    I was told ages ago that they all use the same pricing structure, so I can't understand why it is so much dearer at Lancaster Audi.

    Interesting.
    I've just been calling around for quotes for a new set of front brake pads and a fluid change..
    Lancaster Audi Manchester: Ł191.57
    Macclesfield Audi: Ł189.56
    Smith Knight Fay Stockport: Ł262.53 - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    Warrington Audi: Ł228.54
    Awesome GTi: Ł169.20 (Audi OEM)

    I refuse to ever go bak to SKF in Bolton - EVER!!!!

    Interesting bit: Lancaster and Macc both charge Ł114.56 for pads, but slightly diff price for fluid change.

    Lon, how many miles you covered to have worn out the front pads ?. Last time I checked mine at 15k they wer like brand new. I hate these new hard pads that wear your discs out quicker than the blo*dy pads.

    Re: Second Service

    Lon, why do you refuse to use SMF Bolton?

    I bought my car and have it serviced there. Was are your concerns? (I've found them okay to be honest).

    Japper - I've done 55000miles and the brake pad warning light has just come on.

    Steve and Adam - It all started when they reversed my car into a wall when it was in for a service. It's gone down hill since then. They are incompetent. It hurts too much to delve back into the history. Lancaster are pretty good on the basics, Links Audi in Macc are the bees knees though. I just wish they were closer to me. I still take my car there for servicing even though it is a good 3 hour round trip.

    I'll never go back to SKF in Bolton.

    You are so lucky. Docklands Audi wanted well over Ł400 for the 2nd AVS on my S3 and that didn't even include Haldex oil change!!!
