    Hi,

    Now I've been on the forum for a couple of years and due to the fault of many of you I've ended upgrading a number of bits.

    My cars my pride and joy, as such I would only ever let people work on it that I trust. Don't get me wrong I know there's more expensive cars out there but this is mine and just wanna keep it right.

    This is where Autotechnica come into play. These guys are based in Hull and have won a number of Audi driver magazine awards. The last of these was the gold award for independent service provider in 2013. Given this I knew I was onto a winner when looking for a company to do some work on my car.

    A little more looking into the company and you'll find the owner Andy was with Audi for 13 years, finishing as a master tech and the guy who worked on mine, Ben was also with Audi for over 12 years.

    My A3 went in for the following initially;
    Cambelt and water pump
    Interior ambient light fitted
    S3 Pedals fitted
    And Door closure issue diagnosed

    I then decided I wanted to upgrade the awful large parking sensors that were fitted to my car (prior to my ownership) for the flush OEM ones. The guys booked all this in with no issues at all, ordered what ever bits I needed to finish my install and took the car in last week as agreed

    I was kept updated throughout the process and picked up the car at the agreed time and date.

    I must stress I'm in no way connected to the company but feel that they deserve the following praise......

    The level of service that I and the car received is second to none. The price I've been charged for the work done was so below Audi's quoted price it was amazing. (I'm not knocking the main dealers as I've also had a some really good experiences at the hull branch and understand there overheads and pricing)
    Not only was the price fantastic but the cars had everything done without a single complaint. Everything sits flush and perfect, I have no new rattles or shakes, the cambelt and water pump offers a little reassurance on the cars engine life and the parking sensors look amazing.

    further more with the parking sensors they had to be wired and coded, again this was all done as though factory fit. There is no signs of any damage to the paint and all the panel gaps are factory perfect (or better)

    I know its a long winded update but really feel these guys deserve the praise. If your local to Hull then these guys for fitting, coding, upgrading or servicing are by far the best independent garage I've used.

    Below is there website and Facebook page if anyone's interested.

    Off to visit these chaps tomorrow. Inlet manifold needs replacing plus a full service. Used them for a service 9 months ago and went fine so hopefully the same again tomorrow.

    Very pleased with service. All issues solved (touch wood), excellent communication and good practice. Did all I wanted.
    Would use again and recommend to others.

    I did look there, but they seem to be all main dealers (e.g. the side says 131 main dealers and 0 independents). Which if it is misses a trick (or maybe I misunderstood)

    Autotechnica are independents and provide service significantly in excess of any dealer I received. Better service and money saved. Others seem to say the same http://www.autometrix.co.uk/adi/banners&logos/2015/awards_results_2015.pdf

    Will definitely have to look into these guys.

    Looking at getting a full service done on my car soon, don't trust any old garage with my pride and joy as you said.

    Hopefully they can suffice.

    I'm equally thick and cant see the add review item either. It is not an option for me, simply not in the spot as Sandra sees it. I couldn’t see how to start a thread and still can't doh!

    They were happy for me to provide my own oil - this is the same as they use anyway http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Quantum-L...506393?hash=item2a61448319:g:Cx0AAOSwJkJWl8iL and I also got spark plugs from the parts request service on here which were genuine Audi parts also. Definitely saved a few quid (I estimate at least £40).
