    I need my oil leak fixing but want to take it somewhere that has been recommended to me. Also, my MOT is up soon. Not sure where to take it.

    He said in and or around the Bristol area Scott, which I'd say Bill is, 20 mins is near by.

    He also said reputable. I doubt anyone else on the forum has heard of mr. Batt.

    Define reputable perhaps? it's all relative to the audience to which you ask the question, which in this case of audi-sport, and in that case the answer is B5 :laugh:

    I'm sure mr Batt is very friendly, but stop trying to be arkward ;)

    I'm not.
    He asked for a reputable person in or around bristol.

    I did just that.

    Maybe he should have defined his area.
    My definition of area of Bristol is within the BS postcode, which bill falls out of.

    Their are other good garages apart from the ones that people have heard of on here.

    I found one in my area but I won't name it as I'll get told off again.

    It was a direct link, so advertising. Its fine as is.

    Reesy kinldy changed it to a non link and all is good in the hood. IIRC they are not exactly close enough to help the OP out

    Didn't expect this much response! Badger5 isn't too far away really. It's a Tdi engine though, I feel they are more specialised in the Turbo petrol variety of the VAG range!
