    Can anyone recommend a good independant Audi specalist in Kent or SE London? I'm looking to get some H&R springs fitted and want to entrust it to someone who knows what they're doing! Quotes so far have been £200 - does that sound expensive?

    'Dave' reckoned on £175 to fit the springs, then £70 for a 4-wheel laser alignment.

    Sanspeed want £200 to fit the springs plus extra for the alignment.

    Anyone advise if that's a reasonable price? Is the laser alignment worth it?

    You need a compressor to fit the springs. £175 is reasonable, £70 for the alignment is for 4 wheel alignment and yes it is worth it!

    Spring compressor tools can be had for £20 from Machine Mart.

    Changing all four springs is a 2 hour DIY job for any semi-competant home mechanic.
