    Hi lads, sorry to drop in the thread like this. Im just wondering if any body has any advice on servicing. I have a 53 Plate A3 and upto now the car has full service history from Dealership, but I feel that for the age of the car, and the fact that all "major" parts have already been replaced (timing belt etc) I would rather use a good independent garage. Im from Hartlepool so garages fairly close would be preferable. Thankss lads.

    Welcome fella, your A3 doesnt have a blacked out grill does it? Seen one kicking round town a couple of times..

    Ron Tunbulls in Middlesbrough have the best rep for a non-dealer garage for VAG cars - booking mine in there for the cambelt in a few weeks.

    Hi buddy, thanks for the offer. I'm just about to book the car in if i can get hold of Ron Turnbull's. I've heard some pretty good reviews etc. Much appreciated, nice to know that there's somebody on my doorstep if i ever need anything though.

    For anybody interested, had my service dont at ron turnbull's today. I've never been before and half expected a run down back street workshop but it seems quite proffesional. Service cost £75 (10k service). Dropped car of at 9am, picked back up at 1pm. Advised to get a new radiator because of small leak so i'll be booking that in shortly but overall. Quite impressed.

    A quick question, in my advisory note from the service he explained that my fog lights were not operational. I knew this because I have done the single grille upgrade and never bothered to wire them in. Would this be an MOT fail? As im unsure.

    Rons is a good place. Used them when I was living up north.

    Yes i think it would be a fail as IIRC any lamp fitted to the car must work... Inc fogs.

    No, front fogs aren't a testable item. Its a common misconception that any lights fitted to the vehicle must work. Reversing lights is another that isn't a testable item.
    Mandatory testable lighting on a class 4 is;
    Sidelights
    Dipped beam headlights
    Main beam headlights
    Indicators including side repeaters
    Hazard lights
    Brake lights including high level
    Tail lights
    Offside rear fog light
    Rear registration plate lights

    and thats it. All other lights we aren't interested in

    [TD="class: alt1, bgcolor: #E9E9E9"]I'm thinking of meeting at halfords carpark in bishop Auckland at around 9/10:00am this sunday 12th auguest (I can get a postcode if you need it) then heading towards killhope mine and over hartside pass stopping at hartside cafe for some scran and a opportunity for some awesome photos. After this drive down the other side of the pass which will bring us into Penrith. This is a good chance to refuel or w.e Now from here we can either go into the lakes (Windermere,keswick, Ambleside, etc) or we can head east on the A66 and call at Tan Hill Inn (the highest pub in England) have a cheecky pint there and drive down the awesome road down the other side towards Barnard castle. Then we can end the day either at scotch corner services or back to bishop.

    What yaz think lads?
