    Anyone know a decent body shop in and around Preston ( Rust pics )

    Got a spot of the dreaded rust on my b6 bubbling through on the roof, just want it sorted best as possible.
    Think I've left it to late, rust might of got a proper grip now.

    Not taking into Audi because ive done a bodge job of just painting it over for now.
    So just wanted to know if anyone knows of a decent cheapish sprayers etc in the Preston area.

    Cheers.

    Try Karl Vella on the Docks. My dad has his rear bumper sprayed there, they did a decent job. It was done under insurance though, so not sure what they'd charge to repair that.

    Well I noticed it a while ago, but kinda of fell out of love with the car because of it, I hate rust!
    But I've maintained the car well, and fixed and serviced etc when needed.

    Now in hindsight if I'd of realised a while ago there was a chance I could have it done by Audi foc I would of persued of it, never realised the 12 yr warrantiy thing. I've painted over ( botched ) it now and let it go to far to bother with Audi.

    Going to vist the body shop that the above poster recommended this aft to see its worth doing or not.
    When I bought the car I'd never though I would be seeing rust with an Audi.

    Is yours in the same place and have you had it repaired?

    You could try Sprayfit or even Chips Away. I wanted to get my front bumper resprayed and I was getting quoted between £250-300.

    Ok thanks, but I'm starting to ask my self if it's really worth it on a 8 year old car now? I'd rather start putting my money towards a new one.

    It's quite a lot of work to be fair, access being a pain too as it's the roof. personally I'd rather see it done if it were mine.

    The break down:-
    Labour £137.40
    Paint. £89.00
    Rear glass take out put back £58.00

    £284.50 + Vat = 341.40

    Really like to get it done, but it's the bit about they can only garuntee the repair for 6months. Ok might not return for years but if it comes back after 8 months that will money wasted, just noticed there's a bit of bubbling on one of the front wings now. I mean where do you stop throwing money at a car?

    Not the best question to ask on a car forum lol!

    The front wing issue is well known, I've got a new wing lined up for the spring due to it. I've never seen rust like yours on a roof though

    Ha ha yeah not the best thing to say, but I do like to spend money on my car just spent the best part of £900 in the last few months making sure everything is working and maintained. Just worried how long the rust would stay at bay if I do have it done?
    Decisions decisions.
