    They wouldn't even do it probably, it would get done at the local air con place. Take it there yourself, it should be about Ł70 - Ł90. What parts would they change????

    the charge for regassing last year was around the Ł80 mark so interested to know what else this "service" does.

    Well i rang another dealer and they quoted me Ł89.95 for everything so i think leicester must have got confused with something else.

    Still expesnive when i can take it to stoke audi with dave for Ł59.00 or nationwide autocentres for Ł59.95!

    I went to Bath Audi last week and got quoted Ł189 for an air-con service.

    Ended up going to Heritage VW in Westbury and getting it done for Ł67.50 including a change of pollen filter and running through the old anti-bacterial stuff as well.

    There is an Air Con section at the bottom of the forum page, maybe questions could be answered from there.

    nah, they wont come as far as me, annoying really, but if its Ł60 its still cheap and if they do a good job i dont mind waiting!

    Did they
    Odour/Bacterial Removal Treatment as part of the service for you? as it seems to be extra for this which i find strange!

    Just been to have my car's air con regassed and checked for leaks and it appears that I need a new compressor! They've regassed it and not charged me (they'll charge me when I take it back) but they said Ł600 all in. The Bosch compressor they would buy is around Ł420 opposed to the Audi one which is Ł650. The mechanic said that the compressor seems to be more flaky on the 2.0 TDI's and in general the 2005-2006 A4's always seem to have problems.

    I'm not happy, this f*c*ing car is costing me a fortune and I'm seriously thinking about dumping it. Ł420 for a compressor!? I can get a massive fridge-freezer for that!

    Anyone know where I can see the part number for the compressor, presumably I have to get underneath the car?
