    Hi Guys,

    Finally picking my S3 up on Friday, cant wait!

    I just wondered if anyone had any recommendation's for dealer/specialists to use for servicing/parts/repairs etc in Hull

    The ones im aware of are Ricci Concept, Auto Technica and obviously Audi Hessle.
    Anyone dealt with any of the above?

    Thanks in advance

    Nick

    Hi mate congrats on the s3 , I live in hull and have used hull Audi and I can say stay well clear. Here are the problems I had with them;
    1st I had my car booked in for dsg oil and filter change and I supplied the parts and charged me one hour for the job so gets home
    And find they haven't even changed the oil filter just put fresh oil in, so complained that you can't put new oil
    Through old oil filter and they didn't care.

    2nd I had to get my mechatronic unit replaced at my own expense so booked it in with them thinking they can't mess up again, but after it had been done few days later I noticed it wants holding the revs is certain gears so took it back in. Was waiting one hour yet came back and said there is nothing wrong but the technician has done one or two tweaks then when I drove it was fine so clearly they did something wrong but didn't say what. I am not taking my car there again.
    They only want to know you until you have paid for the job.

    I hear ricci concept are good but expensive but that's all I know.

    Yes i know there useless and your welcome don't want anyone else getting ripped off by them, anything I need doing now get my good friend to do it. Things like servicing and most stuff i do myself has I have a good knowledge of these things but things such as cambelt changes ect my mate does it as he is siht hot lol. He is replacing my camshaft within the next week as my cam follower has gone.so make sure you get that changed soon as you get the s3 it's only £23 lol and easy.

    Very nice best colour lol, with you having black grill and getting black wing mirrors covers I would go down the route of the black wheels really looks good

    Just so many to choose from.
    I do like the idea of black wheels with a white outline, or the chrome protectors, just to separate them from the tyres a little
