    Just got my 52-reg 2.4SE back from its 70,000 mile service & MOT. The car feels great, but the indie garage (Sanspeed in Bexleyheath) suspects a leak in the condenser. They've re-gassed it with dye, and told me to run it for a few days, then bring it back for inspection.

    While I was there, they phoned round checked prices for a new condenser, Bexley Audi quoted £315 plus VAT, but Sanspeed's own supplier (possibly GSF, not sure) quoted £166 plus VAT for a Valeo unit, which is probably OEM anyway.

    I hope it's a false alarm and it doesn't need replacing, but if it does, the choice of supplier really is a bit of a no-brainer. Unless, of course, anyone here knows of a better price???

    Try these, can't see your actual model, but I was quoted £367+VAT by Audi in Camberley ( 03 At Cab 2.5TDI) and bought one off these guys (with the receiver dryer [£50]) for £75+VAT.

    I paid £299 all in for a new condensor, fitted and gassed up. This was from a local air-con specialist. It was the Valeo condensor the guy fitted.....
