    They're all franchised, so the quality varies dramatically depending on the specific dealer.
    Southampton Audi are terrible, but I can't fault their parts department. If you get no joy use VW, or better still phone up your local GSF, they stock OEM parts (proper OEM, i.e. the OEM supplier to Audi), as well as Audi manufactured parts and are generally extremely helpful.
    I found their web site pretty poor (as they don't categorise parts down to a specific model/engine/year, so you get have to trawl through a massive list for all A4's) so better to phone.

    i've never come across a poor one yet, they all seem pretty rich to me. i have seen plenty of poor customers leaving their premesis though after having their trousers forcibly removed in preperation for the obligatory dry humping session when they had to pay the bill.

    i always ask them for a kiss, i generally like to get kissed before i get f**ked, lol

    You're taking your B5 to a main dealer? Surprised they even know what one is.

    sinclair, swansea, are ****e. proper ****e.

    But they do have a sense of humour. After charging me 1,300 for work on my car, they did have the good grace to give me a free can of de-icer.

    Nice.
