    you mean the taekwondo school on the common? --i used to go there, the school not the garage :)

    i'll give sanspeed a ring tomorrow and see how much a annual service/cambelt/water pump/brake fluid change will dent my wallet by. lots i imagine!

    I live about 5 minutes walk from Sanspeed. I've used them on both of my B5s & their work was top class.

    i should really get some pictures of my car up on the site, its fairly recogniseable i think, black pre-facelift a3, 17" avus alloys, darkened side/rear windows, bebadged, blacked out grill and blackened badges (to be replaced this weekend, hopefully).

    although its sitting near trees at the moment and its dirty as hell, no matter how hard i clean it!

    might have seen your car at some point, was at the shell station and saw a sweet looking blue A3 drive past, thought to myself damn thats a nice colour.

    called them up asking about a annual service, cambelt, waterpump --damage comes to the region of £480 (£180 for the annual service apparently) and they'll need the car for the best part of a day and for an extra £50 they'll do the brake fluid change as i dont think its been changed for the best part of 30k :/

    those prices sound about right?

    Sounds pretty good. About two years ago, they did the works on my 2.8 Quattro; service, cambelt, MOT, water pump, plus they re-sprayed the front bumper. All that came to just over £700, so your figures seem about right to me.
