    Just thought Id let you know... when I was phoning aroung for my 80k service, out of the main dealers in the area Audi Wimbledon came out the cheapest. The service included change brake fluid, haldex oil and filter for just under £600. Good customer service too.

    I remember Audi Croydon quoted for the same work just over £700!

    Noticed you're in London my friend, so it maybe worthwhile checking out the prices of Russell Automotive Centre in Kingsbury, North-west London.

    I've recently had my car serviced, haldexed and the cambelt changed (105k and never replaced up 'til then!) using his garage. Steve and his team have done a brilliant job with great customer service; reminds me, got to see him again soon though on something he pointed out whilst changing the cambelt ! Very reasonable...

    Cambelt kit and water pump - £340.74 inc VAT
    Full service - £250 inc VAT
    Haldex oil and filter - £90 inc VAT
    Plus 10% labour charge deduction on prices quoted

    Might be worthwhile giving him a bell in any case...his website is below. All the best.

    It's also worth changing the water pump to one with a metal impellor (the standard audi one's plastic) when you do the cambelt
