Cost of servicing abroad v UK??
Has anyone investigated the cost of having their car serviced at an Audi dealership abroad?
I'd heard that it was cheaper across the Channel but it was only when I noticed a new (I think) Audi dealership in Boulogne yesterday it really set me thinking.....
The cost of crossing on the Vomit Comet (SpeedFerries) isn't very much; you can return with a tankful of cheaper fuel and fill your boot with cheap booze and whatever else takes your fancy.
Re: Cost of servicing abroad v UK??
My neighbour has his Renault Scenic serviced in Calais, but he works for Euro Tunnel and gets crossings for £1. I know the service cost is cheaper, however if it saves enough £ to warrant the effort (and cost of a normal crossing) I'm not sure.
I used to go over to Calais before work to pick up beer and fuel every other month, a return trip on Euro Tunnel used to be £9 that early in the morning, but since the new management has come in all cheap crossings are gone. Also now I have a petrol and not a diesel, although the cost of diesel in France has gone up alot recently.
