    Unhappy Gutted just been hit up the rear

    Looks well bad a fair bit of damage. Need your help in recommending a repair centre near Milton Keynes, don't mind travelling 20 mile radius of Milton keynes. Have read some horror stories about repair jobs on here so wanted to hear from anyone who has any recommended repair centres. I live near the VAG head-quarters (wayside) in Milton keynes was wondering if anyone has used them???

    Cheers

    Feel for you. Got rearended day after I bought my S3, best bit was the guys name...Dr. A Dent. Still glad all are healthy.

    Mine was driveable, so I took it to Ridgeway Audi (Newbury), from there it went to Headley Bodyshop (nr Newbury) where it has all the work done. The bill was about 2500 for the bumper, boot lid, respray and fitting.

    Check inside to see if the damage is real bad and check the bootlid for alingment and dents. Get a full understanding of the damage so you know what to look for when you get it back, and so able to get it changed.

    They did a very good job and the colour match is impressive. Don't know of any MK repair shops but your insurance company should be able to go to anyone you choose when you find a reputable one. Maybe look for a Audi Specialist in the area?

    Good luck.

    Defo not my fault, just worried that the car won't be the same when it comes back from repairs.

    Cheers buddy

    Just about managed to drive the car home, waited nearly 2.5 hours for the recovery and gave up and decided to drive her home myself. my back and head are really hurting from the whiplash...first accident...

    Will do my wife had an accident a few years ago, and the car was never right again, had lots of hassle trying to get the car back to it's original state and gave up and moved the car on.....hope that's not the case this time as i really like the A4...


    Maybe look for a Audi Specialist in the area?
    Good luck.
    Will do cheers JesterS3

    just had a call from the insurance company and their recommended repair centre is called Apollo Coachwork in Hitchen. Anyone used them?

    Thanks

    Take it to your local Audi dealer who will fix it at an Approved Bodyshop it wont cost you anything extra. You have the right to use any bodyshop you choose. Get them to give you a quote and then pass it on to your insurance company.
