..... and the following are advisories. Your thoughts on my statements would be appreciated (and of course, well respected /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif ) 1 - New wiper blades required - Was going to go to halfords and get some BOSCH ones - or are Audi blades something special (quoted £21 - guess this is without VAT) 2 - Front pads getting low. Suppose there's no questioning really however I'm guessing I have a sensor fitted and no lights have come on yet. Was going to go to another garage (not audi but they have done some quality work on my car before) - should I be asking them to fit AUDI pads or Ferodo or just go with what they use ? 3. The biggy.... Water Pump leaking. I know there's no getting round this and need to get it changed as soon as.. (I am keeping a close eye on reservour level). As above, are Audi water pumps something special and should I ask the garage (not dealer - quoted 3 hours labour !!! ) to fit AUDI part - or just trust them to fit a good one ? - I dont mind that Little bit extra if they have to order the Audi pump, as I'm not paying £90 p/h labour !!
