    My car is due for servicing soon and i was just wondering if anyone know of any garage in the west london (wembley,Perivale,Ealing Uxbridge,Southall) area that does a good job cause our friends at audi are extortionate.

    Thanks:respekt:

    You could try Storm Developments in Aldermaston. Not used them yet but may have to take my parents A3 there soon for diagnostic for the check engine light.

    That may be a bit tricky, I could possibly drop you off at the station if needed depending on the time.

    Unfortunatly I wouldnt recommend Biltons in Perivale, after about 10 Years using them they let me and my family down too many times just recently and have pretty much bull****ted there way through problems and then in my case charged silly amounts for unnecessary work and in my brothers attempted to charge him for a part he supplied.

    I've heard bad things about Fontain too. I also arranged a deal with one of their techs to do some work on the side, then he tried to charge me almost fontain price, when he was doing it in his back yard.

    Storm - I'm not sure about, they didnt do a great job for me and I know someone else who isnt 100% about their work too.

    Without being funny Dave, but you have heard bad things about Fontain, then continued to use one of their techs for work on the side? Can't be a good thing in the first place can it? lol. Also wanted to point out that him trying to charge you Fontain prices has nothing to do with Fontain, it's a seperate issue all together.

    I'm not defending Fontain by the way, never even used them in the past....

    No, I heard bad things because a friend of mine took his A4 there and the prices and customer attitude was shocking.

    He kicked up a fuss and got talking to a tech about doing some work on the side, hence my involvment.

    I wouldnt use VW High Wycombe but the only mechanic I trust on my car is a tech there, they are mutually exclusive.

    Customer attitude at Fontain was poor for me, I spent £450 there initially for a 40000 mile service and a read brake pad change. Good by Audi prices granted. However, not all the service items were conducted..

    Further, I did not feel welcome there and the staff i dealt with were not friendly. However, I took the car back, giving them the benefit of the doubt and given the close proximity to my wife's work, for a retrofit item. They charged an arm and a leg for a job that should take an hour to do. They also left the jubille clip off the airbox, which could have sucked anything into the engine, and two fuses have already blown on the retrofitted item....I have approached them about this, and they wanted to charge me an hour's labour just to recheck it....

    Good service....??? :slap:
