    Diagnostic services from Audi and Independent garage, are they doing same job?

    I've just send my car to Audi to do a diagnostic check, they charge £150 for that. And ive been told other specialized independent garage would charge £30 to £50. The question is are they doing same job with same tool (i know its computer&software based) ?

    tyvm, but the car is already with Audi, I've phoned them yesterday, they said they would not only give the error code ,but also what the exactly problem is. I'm going to collect the car today and see what they find.
