    Good spot, surprised this was not highlighted by my dealer when I picked up the car......have just signed up, thanks.

    Will save the hassle you have to deal with when your insurer wants you to use their approved service rather than Audi approved garage.

    agreed, something should done about this as insurers really don't care anymore. its easy money as you have to be insured by law. when someone drove into the back of my wifes car she was with a Diamond whom are useless - I ended up dealing with NINE different companies and their repairers were so useless I could have done a better job blind drunk ad blindfolded. the insurer said theyd get them to redoit, but I refused and told ill use preferred repairers otherwise id report the insurance company to trading standards, etc

    similarly I had to deal with SEVEN companies when some blind pakistani muppet reversed into my car

    No matter who you are insured with you can tell your insurance company where you want your car repaired at. My old A5 was damaged and my insurance company told me they have their own authorised repairer, i told them that i wanted it repaired at Swansway bodyshop and not theirs. They couldn't say no.

    Indeed superb find AudiSparks. Just signed up.

    Agree with the surprise of others that Audi don't broadcast this to new owners.

    Yeh, but you tend to lose some things like hire car cover etc when you use something other than their approved one.

    I've signed up to this Esurance now though, look great!

    Is this not just a Audi branded claims management company?

    I got a similar free package when I took delivery of the S3 but is done by the dealer (Cheshire Oaks audi) and they offer all the same things. Perhaps it's the same but premoted by the dealer
    Week 40: Brilliant Red S3 SB, manual, luna silver alcantara, anthracite alloys, comfort pack, non smoking package, tyre pressure warn, folding mirrors, cruise control, rear parking sensors, SD-satnav.
    Delivered on-time.

    Yes. It's probably a way of ensuring that their approved body shops are used instead of insurers approved bodyshops.

    Still, if it takes the hassle away from you....

    Hi, but that's not a bad thing as is should ensure you get genuine Audi parts not some cheap copy...

    I'm not saying it is a bad thing.... just clarifying why I think they offer the service.

    Everything Audi does appears to be designed with making you (or the insurance company!) part with more money into Audis coffer... They are the car manufacturer equivalent of Apple

    I signed up to this when AudiSparks first posted but have not received the email with all the details as it said on the website.

    Has anybody else received the email?

    Forgot to provide an update, but better late than never.......Unfortunately, I never got a return phone call, first black mark for Audi customer service for me, but found the confirmation email and PDF confirmation of cover in my email Spam folder, and had been sent within a couple of hours of filling in the original on line form.

    Old thread but i just thought I'd reply to say thanks for the heads up on this and to remind anyone who has yet to do this. I had forgotten myself so hopefully this will prompt anyone as forgetful as me.
