    Cost of Diagnostic check !

    Hi
    I have the emission control system fault light on perminantly. I have booked the car in to Teesside Audi for a diagnostic check. They have priced me 117 just for the check . Is this about right ? seems a bit steep to me. Does anyone know a good mechanic in the Middlesbrough area that could do the work.
    Thanks.

    Why not buy vagcom mate & do yourself & subsequent diag checks, coding, mods etc can be done by yourself also for free.

    PM me if interested.

    That probably be their hourly rate. Total rip off for 5 mins work, then will then give you a horrific repair quote too.

    If your planning on keeping the car, i'd suggest as NHN and get your own lead. If not, I'd go to another local garage that has a diagnostic lead and get them to do it.

    Thanks guys going to cancel apointment and book smaller independant dealer. I dont know why I booked it really after earlier in the year they did a service and found a lot of things wrong that they made out to be quite major but really didnt need doing. I think they rely on this "Prestige" moniker a bit to much. Love the cars think the dealer charges are a joke.
