    Do Audi do free Health checks on your car, giving a report on its condition and anything needing done??

    Ands its FREE??

    I'm also enquirying with them over a patch of rust 6inches long at bottom of drivers door?

    How stubborn are they over claims?

    Any requirments like FASH? Owned car for x amount of time?


    Just purchased it after previously having an Audi A3 1.8se then Mk4 Golf then an Audi A4 b5, I'm back to my Audi A3 1.8sport :) 1 prev owner 100k FSH cam etc changed at 80k (but has a god awful tow bar on it:scared2::detective2:

    oil,coolant, tyres, brakes, lights, battery condition... i wouldnt bother, nothing anybody couldnt check themselves.

    MOT is essentially a health check anyway

    well i had it done as i had a buzzing in my engine, they looked at it and confirmed what i thought but also told me my exhaust bracket had broke which wud have failed the mot, which i also got free. its basic but it gave me the heads up to get any work done without failing and having to pay for a mot retest

    I had it done, it is free and no catches.

    The only thing they do kinda exaggerate, they said i had a couple of things that needed doing now i took the car away saying i would book it in etc, got it checked out privately and it was nothing...
    All id say is take the check and if they say something i needing doing get it checked elsewhere to be sure.

    They look into things like suspension and things so i guess its nice to have something to confirm the car is in shape :)

    iv never paid for an MOT retest mate.

    they obviously would want you too book your car in at the garage so they would exaggerate
