    Just been to an independant audi specialist and they said if you have a problem with your car and its still under audi warrenty, you dont have to go to audi to get it fixed !

    Aparently european law (dont you love them) means any garage has the right to undertake the work and audi cannot hog all the work.

    Well interesting.

    yes been like that for a while.

    But you must use Official Audi parts, and service/maintain it to their specifications/procedures.

    I cant be bothered to try and PROVE that the correct parts and shedule has been adheared too, in the event of a claim.

    You just know they will do their best to wriggle out of it.


    So, still Audi Servicing for me.

    People on here probably don't know your middle name.

    Come on Olly - EVERYBODY know this! :moa:

    It's all part of the block exemption rules that were brought in to try and stop the manufacturers monopoly.
