    Hi people,
    Just wondered if everyone had any words of advice on where to get the Cambelt and water pump replaced near Warrington without getting ripped off?
    I'm not too far from Awesome Gti has anyone used them for this kind of work before?

    Cheers for that one mate :) after ringing around a few places I'm booked in at Awesome Gti next week at £330 for Cambelt Kit and Waterpump.
    Audi Warrington would not budge from their "discounted offer price" of £529 + vat. Their loss!

    Had a cam belt, water pump and service done on my B8 few weeks ago at awesome gti.

    Can only say good things, great service, very professional, courtesy car was a pleasant bonus and a few hundred quid cheaper than Audi main dealer wanted to releive me of.

    You won't be disappointed
