    Central Audi/VW Birmingham?

    Hi

    Just wondered if anyone on here has used Central Audi/Vw by the Fort shopping park in Birmingham?

    I've spoken to them about a major service and g/box oil change on my cab and they seem pretty good, but before I go spending hard earned cash with them would like to hear any feedback from members, good or bad.

    Thanks in advance

    Mark

    hi speedy, hows things?

    they've quoted me 220 for major service including coolant and brakefluid change and 110 for the multitronic g/box oil change (not many independants can do this as i'm told you need a special piece of audi kit to do it with?) local audi dealers want 369 for service + 50 for brake fluid change + 185 for g/box oil change!!! Yjey've been recommended on a few other forums but can't find any trace of them on here?

    this is their website..

    Hi mate, im good thanks, yea heard a few good things about Autovolks and they are VERY local, ive had a couple of quotes and they were quite pricey, but its always worth a try to see if they are better for yourself.

    I know Midland VW are a bit of a way out, but its worth the visit really dude, there service is second to none and they are actually good people too

    Cheers Nilz, I've tried ringing autovolks on numerous occasions over the last week and haven't been able to get them! I'll try them again tomorrow! I've got to say though that the guy at central audi was really nice, took alot of time on the phone and said 'just pop in for a coffee to see what a great set-up we've got' might well do that as I'll be over that way tomorrow. Someone else said to phone the main dealers, ask for their prices then tell them you've got much better deals from the independents and see if they'll match the price....can;t see them doing that though can you??

    I used to use Autovolks about 10 years ago, the guy knows his stuff, but he's only slightly cheaper than the VW dealer right next door!

    Mark, I was going to say to try haggling with the dealers, as they are open to it and will often do it, I have also only heard very good things about Stratford Audi (Stratford upon Avon), they are also pretty good on prices too, so might be worth having a word with them too...

    Big thumbs up for Midland VW here, fantastic prices and brilliant service. Wouldnt take my car to anyone else now if I'm being honst.

    I took my car to Autovolks for a service not so long ago and whilst the major service was 160 which I thought was OK, the quote for replacing bushes etc was HUGE!!!. Plus, when I enquired about getting all my suspension work done they never got back to me. Wont be using them again now to be honest which is a shame as they're local to me.

    I was pointed towards Midland VW after that and their prices were half what Autovolks quoted for replacing wishbone bushes etc.

    Due to my original plans for a remap being scuppered by work changing my shifts I'm now going to take my car to Midland for its remap. It'd be rude not to get a Miltek thrown on by them too being as its going to be there

    I cant fault them though, Jody is always willing to sort things out, they chucked on new top mounts FOC when they fitted my new suspension and gave me a good discount being as I was getting ARBs fitted and having the cambelt done at the same time. Always reply to emails etc too, just be patient if you're trying to phone them in the afternoon though when everyones picking up their cars, can get quite busy at the front desk!. They also gave me a courtesy car for the day, good service.

    LOL...ok ok I get the message, just spoken to them and they've quoted me the same as Central and I've got to agree, they sound a good bunch. Only problem is I'd have to drive up there and wait while its done and I've got so much on next week that I don't think I can fit it in

    Still eaiting for the dealers to get back to me with a revised price

    Right then...spoke to Central again, they seem on a par with Midland, they only use genuine parts and do the servicing etc on the 'older' audi's for the local dealers. They've got a good set-up so, paired with my time constraints next week, I've decided to be the guinea pig of the forum and booked it in with them!!

    I will post a review of my experiences, good or bad, when its done........
