    OMG, just had my A4 TDi Sport Avant in for its 86k full service and cambelt change and cost me £801 all inclusive all done at Links Audi Macclesfield.
    They also told me that I needed a new anti-roll bar before my next MOT is due.....costing somewhere near £170 including parts and labour!!!!
    If I knew about the servicing costs I might have gone for another German brand....:ohmy: :ohmy: .
    Extra key costing £170

    they should change the waterpump as it went on mine at 38k and also went on my last 20v Turbo golf. They use plastics fins/ impellers on them which over time snap / crack. Would be silly if they didn't change it when the cambelt is changed as its a simple job when the cambelt is off but you never know with Audi Stealerships

    My water pump was replaced by the specialist but they put one on with metal impellors on it not plastic
    Though it was a hell of a lot more expensive :think:

    Ive only got a 1.9 avant sport,so I suppose thats why mine was a bit cheaper,,my price didnt include the water pump,they said theyd look at it and if it was OK theyd leave it ....to be honest I wish I'd had it done now :think:

    Dunno ,I suppose it would be about £170 at the dealer I used,however others are charging up to £400.
    Independents will probably do it for about £180 .
    Only reason I stuck with the dealer was because of the special offer they had on servicing and it kept up the FASH,otherwise I would have used an Independent .

    Well gave Andrew a call and got Sarah (not that i'm complaining) and asked for a quote for Cam Belt Water pump etc etc, I had been quoted £750.00+VAT :sadlike: by Smith Knight Fay, Sarah came back with £345.00 inc VAT booked in for next Friday.. how on earth can there be such a diff between stealers?

    Because we let them ?!

    Stoke deserve the business whatever they are loosing in the cost they must be getting it back in the volume of trade generated by these sort of posts........I agree the greedy sods down here wanted over £100 for the same job !
