    Just got my full service done and sent it in for its MOT as well.
    It ended up costing me £499 and failed the MOT.
    Apparently there is a list of things need to be done
    here goes
    O/S Outer CV boot
    Rocker cover Gaskets
    Front brake pads
    Rear Brake Pads and discs
    Wipers
    O/S fog lamp
    All in all the bill came to £1225 approximately.....Goooosh :confused: :confused: :confused:

    The question now is do i fork out for it or go to an independent to get things sorted.

    your comments as always greatly appreciated

    Don't Audi tend to do this...give you a massive list of advisory issues in the hope you'll pay out?

    I was in a similar position a couple of years ago (brake pads low and headlamp washer faulty) and paid out but I don't think I would again. By all means get the service done by Audi but tell them thanks for letting you know about the advisory issues and get the brake pads etc done at an independent. That's just my opinion.

    I would use Audi parts myself...I'm just not that fussed about Audi fitting them.
