    New A3 owner - South Wales - Any recommendations for garage?

    Evening all.

    I've just bought a silver 1999 T plate A3 1.6 Sport after considering different options for a few months.

    The main reason for choosing this car was its economy, practicality, and the fact everyone I know who owns an Audi tends to keep it for at least 5+ years and then replace it with another Audi.

    Previously I've owned an Alfa GTV, Alfa 156, BMW MINI, BMW 325 and various other cars, but this will be first Audi, or in fact, first car from VW/Audi/etc.

    I'm based in South Wales - any recommendations for a specialist Audi garage or decent independant garage?

    Hi and welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new purchase

    What part of South Wales are you based? Myself, I'm from cardiff but wouldn't recommend Cardiff Audi, I prefer Sinclair Audi in Bridgend

    I use JP Board in bridgend they are a VAG group dealer. Chris in service is the main man but most of all they will not rip you off as there work shop prices are much cheaper than main dealer
