    Be prepared for minor failures with major repair costs on this year's MOT, and then lots more failures on next year's MOT that aren't covered under the Ł750 repairs offer.

    Sorry to bring this up as I can see this was originally discussed last year, however I have a "free" MOT booked in with Audi on the 17th of this month (cars first MOT).

    I was thinking exactly the same as Ads has just said above.

    Has anyone actually walked into Audi, had the free MOT and then passed without paying a penny? I just can't see this happening, surely they will need to cover the cost of the MOT somehow?

    Anyone had any experiences with this?

    I would be very surprised if they didnt find something wrong, nothing in this life is free, lol.

    This is exactly what I was thinking. But yeah, since it's free I might as well try my luck? I can always book it in at a local garage.

    Might seem a bit pointless but worth a shot IMO.

    My car has had all (x2 now) MOT's free with Audi and passed both times without any advisories. As long as you have your car serviced by Audi you are entitled. If the dealership is trying to catch you out then report them, simple as....

    Thanks for some positive feedback from experiences there guys - appreciated.

    Does anyone know if ECU software updates are part fo the MOT? I've had my car mapped and don't want the ECU touching if possible!

    No they are not and the updates shouldn't effect the map anyway...

    Thanks to the OP for pointing this out just rang and added my free MOT on to the service Friday. Saved me ÂŁ35 so thanks a lot

    I understand people saying they will try and fail it in the hope they can make a killing out of repairs. If this happens though I will just go back to my original plan of my mate who works at Honda doing it and almost guaranteed to pass. Not costing me any more. I doubt they will find anything to fail it on though.

    Same here! Mine passed Thursday although I was a little worried as they were fiddling about with the passenger headlight for a while. It looks like they were adjusting it. I half expected a labour charge for that lol
