    Hello,

    After a little advice here, if poss......

    Following a "free MOT" local dealers have identified on a "visual check" that the following work needs done and at this price

    Brake Fluid Replacement time/mileage £56.39
    ft pads n discs corroded £279.51
    rr pads n discs corroded n binding £225.84
    x2 intercooler seals oil leak £71.86 amongst other work

    If i get this work done elsewhere (none Audi dealer) will it void the reminder of my Warranty? Car has just had its second variable service and has 25k on clock. A3 2.0 TDI S-Line 140

    'm 99% sure a ruling a couple of years ago means as long as a VAT registered garage is used and you keep the invoices as proof then warranty is still valid - this was to stop main dealers having the monopoly on work

    When i had front pads and discs fitted to my TT225 i bought genuine pads at £59.00 and Lockhead discs at £69.00, fitting was done at a friendly garage for £20.00 so i think Audi are overcharging
