    ROBBERS.

    At that price it would be cheaper to take you chances and use independents.

    We got a quote for a new facelift S3 a little while ago, and when we priced up fixed price servicing on longer service intervals it had gone up from Ł24 per month (the deal we secured in 2007 for the S3), to Ł57 if we took it out today.

    That would be ROBBERS again then.

    See a pattern emerging.

    My wife had an extended warranty with Warranty Direct on her VW Polo. She had a fault with one of the levelling motors inside a headlight. Her normal VW dealer dealt direct with Warranty Direct and it all sorted at no cost to her.

    I had a quote in Warranty direct recently of Ł412.72 for a 12 months LuxuryCare policy on my A3. This included all work being done by a franchised dealer, 7 days alternative car hire at Ł30 per day, and including wear and tear 90 days after the start of the policy and a Ł25.00 excess.

    Their phone number is 0800 731 7001 and their website is www.warrantydirect.co.uk

    Yes that the price they quoted for a three year old A3. Good value compared with the Audi price.

    May I suggest you contact Warranty Direct and ask them for a quote. They will then send you a paper copy of the quote together with a copy of the LuxuryCare policy summary and you will be able to compare it in detail with the same information from your Audi dealer.

    The LuxuryCare policy summary gives details of what is included and a list of what is excluded.
